Mark FrankeWhite & Case LLP

The practice at White & Case LLP advises across the full spectrum of restructuring matters, with areas of expertise including sponsor and company side mandates and Chapter 11 restructurings. Thomas Lauria, who leads the global team, led the representation of Hertz Global Holdings which faced $19bn of outstanding debt and claims. He splits his time between the New York and Miami office. The team’s  representation of Boy Scouts of America in its Chapter 11 proceedings was also of note, demonstrated by Jessica Lauria (formerly Boelter), who led on the matter and practices from the New York office. The practice also saw the arrival of Gregory Pesce from Kirkland & Ellis LLP in May 2021, now residing in the Chicago office, and the partner promotions of Charles Koster and Aaron Colodny in Houston and Los Angeles respectively. John Cunningham is well versed in the handling of domestic and cross-border restructurings, and divides his time between Miami and New York. In addition, Boston-based Mark Franke is noted due to his specialism in aviation mandates.
