Corporate restructuring and insolvency

Within: Corporate restructuring and insolvency

Traditionally best-known for its work on behalf of banking clients, including Lloyds and Standard Chartered Bank,¬†Hogan Lovells International LLP¬†'s six-partner team has effectively diversified its client base to include a raft of hedge funds and private equity firms (including DuPont Capital and CarVal Investors) that are increasingly prominent in the market. Benefiting from significant strength-in-depth from the firm's London office and also able to leverage experts from the firm's international network of offices, the team provides 'creative and commercial advice' and is noted for its ability to 'control multi-agenda stakeholders with terrific subject matter knowledge'. The 'savvy, hardworking and commercial'¬†Tom Astle¬† has been central to diversifying the firm's client base to include an increased number of funds and this can be underscored by the prominent role the firm has in the high-profile Agrokor restructuring on behalf of an ad-hoc committee of holders of $900m of Agrokor debt. Notably, as part of this mandate the firm designed and implemented a novel ‚ā¨1.06bn DIP funding into that process. The 'excellent'¬†Alex Kay¬†is also heavily involved in the Agrokor matter and in addition to this high-profile matter is also involved in several other matters on behalf of distressed buy side investors and bondholder committees in complex cross-border restructurings, including his representation of the ad hoc committee of holders of senior notes in relation to the restructuring of Ukraine-based farming conglomerate, the Mriya Group. Particularly active on the bank side,¬†Stephen Foster¬†is recognised by one client as 'one of the best restructuring lawyers in London' and is a key member of the team that also includes the 'fantastic'¬†Paul McLoughlin,¬†Joe Bannister,¬†Deborah Gregory¬†and 'smart and unflappable' newly promoted counsel¬†James Maltby¬†.
