Headed by Ben Jones, Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP 's three-partner team has a strong reputation in the mid-market where it receives regular instructions on both the debtor and creditor front from IPs (Deloitte, Ernst & Young),  banks (Lloyds Banking Group) and funds (Mount Street, Lonestar). The team excels at handling deals from within core areas of  sector focus for the firm where it can offer an enhanced offering from a multi-disciplinary approach. For example, in a deal which involved significant input from the firm's real estate and corporate finance teams, Ian Benjamin recently advised Bondcare Group on the acquisition out of administration of a portfolio of nine care homes across the UK from the  Lifestyle Care group. Benjamin has also recently provided English law advice to the Official Committee of the Unsecured Creditors in relation to the Toys R Us Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings. Marc Trottier handles debtor and creditor work and is noted for his expertise across the energy and sporting sectors, in particular; he recently advised SDX Energy on the $30m acquisition of a portfolio of oil and gas production and exploration assets in Egypt and Morocco, which were held by Circle Oil plc, from the administrators of one of Circle’s subsidiaries. Contentious insolvency expert David Leibowitz joined Mishcon de Reya LLP in May 2017.
