Tessa BlankDentons

Dentons provides ‘innovative solutions in a collegiate and professional manner’ for banks, IPs and debtors across everything from consensual restructuring to formal insolvency. Team head Neil Griffiths  is ‘one of the most experienced practitioners in the London market’. He has a particularly strong reputation in relation to contentious matters, as was evidenced by his recent work for Hurricane Energy Plc on its hotly contested use of the new restructuring plan to to cram-down shareholders as a dissenting class. Tessa Blank is ‘extremely bright and able to communicate difficult concepts in easy to understand language’ and is a key member of the team that includes counsel Luci-Mitchell Fry, who is noted for her ‘very commercial advice’, particularly in a contentious context.
