McDermott Will & Emery LLP’s ‘very responsive’ restructuring and insolvency practice typically advises financial institutions on some of the largest municipal bankruptcies. In relation to Puerto Rico’s fiscal crisis, the group is assisting Goldman Sachs Asset Management, who is owed $1.8bn in various debt instruments; this matter is overseen by William Smith, while Nathan Coco is handling the negotiated settlement and Jay Kapp is leading a team advising on bankruptcy aspects. In another highlight, the practice assisted Barclays as a major creditor and underwriter of $725m of bonds issued by the Chicago public school board and advised bond insurer Ambac on City of Fairfield, Alabama’s financial distress.
