In Los Angeles, Jones Day houses a robust business restructuring and reorganization team which has achieved renown especially on the basis of its impressive work on the City of Detroit case. In this instance, the team was involved from the debtors’ side, but they also act for creditors, committees, and equity holders and represent them in distressed asset sales, out-of-court restructurings, and bankruptcy cases. Practice head Bruce Bennett covers different areas, including entertainment, energy, and automotive.

Jones Day has a global restructuring practice that is equally apt at advising debtors, secured lenders, creditors committees and, on the municipality side, bondholders. In 2019, the practice continued to be involved in the most significant cases of the latest years, including General Motors, Toys ‘R’ Us, and iHeart Communications – all of which were led by practice head Bruce Bennett. His team includes New-York-based Corinne Ball (who has longstanding experience in distressed acquisitions) and Heather Lennox (who acts in and outside the court in both corporate and municipal restructurings.) The firm countered a series of partner departures (including that of highly regarded Scott Greenberg) with the hiring of Joshua Brody from Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP and of counsel Michaela Crocker.
