Latham & Watkins LLP specializes in representing distressed companies and acquirers in the sale and purchase of distressed assets. The growing debtor practice was boosted by the additions in New York of George Davis, who acts as global chair of the restructuring, insolvency and workouts practice, and Andrew Parlen, both from O'Melveny & Myers LLP. Also leading the team are global vice chairs Jeff Bjork, who joined the Los Angeles office from Sidley Austin LLP, and Chicago-based Richard A. Levy. Other contacts in the team include Peter Knight and Jim Ktsanes in Chicago, New York's Mitchell Seider and Ted Dillman in Los Angeles. The practice is acting for Citibank as administrative agent for PetSmart’s first lien term loan of approximately $4.5bn, in the ongoing challenge to PetSmart’s out-of-court reorganization and financial restructuring. In another highlight, the department is representing Blackhawk Mining in the out-of-court restructuring of the company’s capital structure, including its asset-based lending, first lien term loan, and second lien term loan credit facilities. The team also continues to represent Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin in litigation related to the 2016 Chapter 11 plan agreed for online mobile payments and identity verification company Jumio.
