Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP is a market-leading debtor-side firm and has recently assisted in the Chapter 11s of Basic Energy Services, Breitburn Energy Partners and CHC Group. Practice co-heads Ray Schrock and Gary Holtzer pre-packaged the $1bn and $1.5bn debt restructurings of Basic Energy Services and CHC Helicopters respectively.

Capitalizing on the upsurge of work in the energy sector, the firm has also represented creditors in some of the most high-profile bankruptcies. It has been representing the official committee of unsecured creditors in the SunEdison bankruptcy, the largest filed in 2016 with over $16bn in debt, and represented the official committee of unsecured creditors in the Ultra Petroleum Corporation case, which filed with $3.75bn in liabilities. Other key names are Marcia Goldstein and Matt Barr, who has just been made co-head of the practice alongside Schrock and Holtzer. All named attorneys are based in New York.
