White & Case LLP continued to build on its strong creditor-side practice with engagements in some of the largest bankruptcies of the year. It is representing an ad hoc group of unsecured noteholders in the Chapter 11s of both Energy XXI and Caesars Entertainment Operating Company, as well as the official committee of unsecured creditors in the Samson Resources Chapter 11. The firm has also been representing lenders, including the committee of senior secured lenders holding over $10bn of indebtedness in the Seadrill Ltd restructuring and the joint lead arrangers and bookrunners in the restructuring of SunEdison. Out of its Miami office, the firm has an active Latin American restructuring practice; John Cunningham represents clients Oi SA and OAS SA in their respective cross-border restructuring proceedings as well as the ad hoc group of noteholders of GOL, one of Brazil’s largest airlines, in connection with its proposed restructuring of over $780m in notes. The firm has also had a role in Puerto Rican debt crisis, representing UBS Group AG, which holds over $3bn in bonds. Global director Anthony Morro and global practice head Thomas Lauria (who is ‘among the most creative lawyers in the bankruptcy field’) lead the team from New York.
