White & Case LLP has a strong national and multinational restructuring and insolvency practice known for its high-profile representations of creditors, hedgefunds and bank lenders. During the wave of energy and E&P bankruptcies it has secured several significant matters such as advising the coordinating committee of senior secured lenders, holding over $10bn of indebtedness, on Seadrill’s Chapter 11 proceedings; assisting the official committee of unsecured creditors with Samson Resources Company’s Chapter 11 restructuring; and advising Wilmington Trust as indenture trustees on the cross-border liquidation of Petroplus. With a strength in cross-border engagements and representation of multinational Latin American companies, it also assisted Brazilian telecoms company Oi with its $19bn restructuring proceedings. The team is further advising OAS, a construction and engineering company based in Brazil, on potential out-of-court restructuring options for its $1.7bn bond debt, as well as on its US Chapter 15 proceedings. Thomas Lauria heads the practice which recently welcomed Brian Pfeiffer from Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP; both split time between New York and Miami. Other additions to the team include Philip Abelson from Proskauer Rose LLP and David Turetsky from Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, both based in the New York office.
