The ‘fantastic’ financial restructuring group at Stroock & Stroock & Lavan LLP has a strong creditor-side practice as well as a good reputation for representing hedge and private equity funds. The team advised an ad hoc group of holders of first and second debt in Avaya’s Chapter 11 proceedings and assisted an ad hoc group of unsecured bondholders of Seadrill with its Chapter 11 proceeding as well as with the considered $1bn of new capital contribution. In another prominent highlight, the practice is acting for Brigade Capital Management in Toys"R"Us’ bankruptcy proceedings and practice head Kristopher Hansen led a team which acted for an ad hoc group of Caesars Entertainment Operating Company’s first lien bank lenders who are owed an aggregate of $5.4bn. The New York-based team recently welcomed Brian Kelly from Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP and Daniel Fliman from Kasowitz Benson Torres LLP, as well as special counsel Alon Goldberger and Samantha Martin from Dechert LLP and Morrison & Foerster LLP respectively. Frank Merola and Jonathan Canfield are other names to note.
