Cleary Gottlieb advises clients worldwide on restructuring matters that cross legal and geographical borders.

The deep ties that we form in all of the regions comprising our practice allow our lawyers to understand both the legal and cultural landscapes of highly complex, multijurisdictional restructurings. Clients appreciate the rigor of our approach, with our lawyers employing tough, analytical and outside-the-box thinking to structure creative solutions.

Harnessing our integrated global partnership and network of locally qualified lawyers, we represent both debtors and creditors in cross-border restructurings and insolvency proceedings in the United States, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia. We also represent debtor companies, investors, official committees and other creditor and equity groups in Chapter 11 proceedings in the United States. Our restructuring group has litigated extensively in virtually every U.S. state, throughout the U.S. federal system, and before European national courts and the courts of the European Union.

We excel at providing invaluable strategic advice to both buyers and sellers in restructuring M&A transactions and are market leaders in the intersections of the U.S. bankruptcy, securities and tax laws.
