The bankruptcy and corporate reorganization team at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP is appreciated by its clients for its ‘unique and creative solutions and ability to go above and beyond’. Alongside head of practice Alan Kornberg and deputy head Brian Hermann, the recently promoted Jacob Adlerstein represented the ad hoc committee of certain first lien senior secured creditors in the Texas Competitive Electric Holdings Company Chapter 11. In another creditor-side engagement, Elizabeth McColm and Andrew Rosenberg represented the unsecured creditors’ committee in the Quicksilver Resources bankruptcy and continued to represent an ad hoc group of senior unsecured creditors in the Chapter 11 of Paragon Offshore, which has operations in Brazil, Mexico, the North Sea and the Middle East. In another example of its cross-border expertise, the ‘incredibly hands-on, commercial, efficient and client-service-oriented’ team were US counsel to the ad hoc committee of senior noteholders and certain debtor-in-possession financing providers in the Pacific E&P Chapter 15 case. On the debtor-side, Kelley Cornish and Stephen Shimshak represented Walter Energy in all aspects of its Chapter 11 case, resulting in the discharge of over $4bn of secured and unsecured debt. All named lawyers are based in New York.
