McDermott Will & Emery LLP focuses on the areas of healthcare bankruptcy, municipal insolvency and transactional advice. New York-based Timothy Walsh leads a team experienced in acting for debtors, creditors and committees, in pre- and post-bankruptcy filings. In a highlight, the firm is acting for Goldman Sachs Asset Management as a holder of several billion in debt instruments related to the $73bn Puerto Rico owes to creditor; healthcare-related bankruptcy and restructuring specialist William Smith, and James Kapp, who focuses on distressed companies and interested creditors, are leading in this matter from the firm’s Chicago office. The team also advised Presence Health, an operator of 11 hospitals and 28 senior living facilities in Illinois, in relation to $1bn worth of debt it incurred. The matter was resolved in 2018 when the client joined Ascension, the largest nonprofit operator of hospital in the US.
