The New York-based bankruptcy and corporate reorganization practice at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP regularly represents clients on both sides: highlighting its creditor-side expertise, the team was engaged by an ad hoc group of senior unsecured creditors and later appointed by the official committee of unsecured creditors in Paragon Offshore’s $2bn Chapter 11. It also advised Apollo Capital Management on an $800m DIP financing facility to Westinghouse Electric Company. In the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico’s unprecedented restructuring of $18bn of debt, Andrew Rosenberg is acting for an ad hoc group of Puerto Rico general obligation bondholders. The group has also increased the prominence of its debtor practice, where Alan Kornberg and Brian Hermann recently led the representation of subsidiaries of CGG, which included dual track US Chapter 11 and French sauvegarde proceedings in addition to US Chapter 15 proceedings. In another highlight, the group advised Foresight Energy on its $2bn out-of-court restructuring and subsequent $1.3bn refinancing. The company-side practice was further strengthened by the addition of Paul Basta, previously at Kirkland & Ellis LLP, as co-chair of the department alongside Kornberg. Stephen Shimshak now acts as of counsel and Kyle Kimpler made partner.
