Traditionally, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP is known as a creditors’ practice, where the team has deep experience, but the firm also has a strong offering on the debtor side. New York-based global head of financial restructuring Daniel Golden leads a national team with expertise in formal and out-of-court restructurings, as well as in financing and strategic transactions. A notable recent example of work has been representing the debtors in the FirstEnergy Solutions Chapter 11 case; the company, its subsidiaries and affiliates, which make up the debtors in the matter, are responsible for multiple fossil and nuclear power generating facilities throughout Ohio and Pennsylvania; the complex matter involves, among other things, negotiating with various creditor constituencies, preparing the first-day pleadings and working with the debtors’ regulators; the highly recommended Ira Dizengoff is leading with Abid Qureshi from New York and Scott Alberino in Washington DC. Also notable in the team is New York-based Philip Dublin, who is acting for the official committee of unsecured creditors in the Chapter 11 filing of iHeartMedia in negotiating the treatment for unsecured creditors under the the debtor's plan. The team is negotiating with the debtor's advisers with respect to, among other things, the debtor's key employee retention and incentive plans. In addition, the firm litigated the committee’s objection to the proposed retention of two investment bankers that could result in fees of $90m.
