Lawrence Larose - Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP

Within: Restructuring (including bankruptcy): municipal

Incorporating the legacy practice of Chadbourne & Parke, Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP has experience both in out of court and in court restructuring of municipal entities. Led by New York-based practice head Lawrence Larose, the group advised the autonomous municipality of San Juan on the restructuring of the Government Development Bank in Puerto Rico’s debt crisis, which included litigation against the oversight board, the Governmental Development Bank and the Puerto Rico Fiscal Agency and Financial Advisory Authority. The team is also assisting Assured Guaranty as a monoline bond insurer of bonds issued by Atlanta City, New Jersey and by Hartford, Connecticut in relation to the cities’ financial distress. In relation to Jefferson County’s Chapter 9 case, the firm continues to be engaged by Assured Guaranty, as insurer of $2bn of County warrants, in appeal of the confirmation order. Christy Rivera in New York was recently promoted to the partnership.
