Headed by James Roome and Barry RussellAkin Gump LLP‘s 13-partner team dominates the public bondholder and private placement space. It is consequently involved in many of the biggest-ticket global mandates, leveraging the expertise of practitioners in key international locations including New York, Frankfurt, and Hong Kong. The team is appreciated by clients for its willingness and ability to ‘make a deal, even between disparate and different types of stakeholders‘, and while the team may be more limited in scope than some of ranked firms, it has ‘unrivalled experience in representing bondholder committees in distressed situations‘. Although the practice is sector agnostic it has particular strength in the energy space, where James Terry has provided an ‘outstanding service‘ to Norwegian Trustee and across high yield restructurings in the oil and gas industry. ‘A very safe pair of hands for all complex restructuring work‘, Liz Osborne has an ‘excellent profile in the market‘ and recently led the firm’s work as independent international counsel in connection with the negotiation, agreement, and implementation of the settlement plan for Croatia-based conglomerate Agrokor on its high-profile restructuring. Emma Simmonds ‘consistently provides pragmatic advice in complex situations‘ and is also recommended.
