Financial Restructuring and Insolvency


Clients who appoint us on financial restructuring and insolvency matters want a recognized leader in complex cross-border insolvencies and workouts. Our practice represents clients in all aspects of restructurings, workouts and insolvency matters, including both transactional and litigation matters. We regularly represent multinational corporations in simultaneous proceedings in virtually every corner of the world.

The industry magazine The Deal has ranked White & Case as the number one restructuring team globally for seven consecutive years.


Unmatched problem solving and strategic thinking

Our practice's approach is to develop a sound strategic understanding of each client’s circumstances upfront, as quickly as possible. We have built a reputation for being aggressive and creative on behalf of our diverse clients across the board, not waiting for others to act, but forcing others to react to what we are doing for our clients. We are the go-to team for clients in deep trouble who need a law firm to hit the ground running–and to represent them with passion and tenacity.
