Tom VickersSlaughter and May

Less siloed in its approach than many of the other ranked firms, a reflection of the firm’s overarching generalist ethos, Slaughter and May is able to provide a very fluid and commercial service to companies, IPs and boards of directors on challenging and complex restructurings. ‘Very calm and pragmatic‘ team head Ian Johnson  is a ‘standout debtor side counsel’ who has been particularly active of late handling mandates within the oil and gas sector, including on behalf of Seadrill on its high-profile restructuring. Able to advise on both contentious and non-contentious restructuring/insolvency matters, Tom Vickers  is also a core member of the team; he recently advised Virgin Group on the successful restructuring of Virgin Active.
