Leading European Restructuring Lawyer Matthew Czyzyk Joins Ropes & Gray’s Business Restructuring Group in London
Global law firm Ropes & Gray has strengthened its European restructuring and special situations offering with the appointment of Matthew Czyzyk as a partner in its business restructuring group. Matt will be based in London.
A leading special situations and restructuring lawyer, Matt has broad experience acting for a wide range of stakeholders, including debtors, banks and alternative capital providers. He has advised on transactions across the credit spectrum, including cross-border and domestic financial restructurings, lending transactions, and distressed and recovery situations.
Matt joins one of the world’s leading restructuring teams. Ropes & Gray’s business restructuring lawyers have represented clients in virtually every form of restructuring, insolvency and workout. The practice is widely recognized in the leading legal directories and is described as being a “sophisticated, high-quality” practice by Chambers USA.
David Djaha, managing partner of Ropes & Gray, said, “Our business restructuring team is seeing ever-increasing levels of activity, as companies and investors grapple with the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic. Matt will play a key role in strengthening our global restructuring and special situations offering.”
“Matt has significant experience representing sophisticated clients in all aspects of complex restructurings, workouts, insolvency matters, debt financings and direct lending, and we are excited he is joining us,” said Gregg Galardi, co-leader of Ropes & Gray’s business restructuring group.
Matt joins Ropes & Gray from the London office of a global law firm, where he was a partner. His arrival builds on the appointments over the past two years of business restructuring partners Cristine Pirro Schwarzman and Matthew Roose in the firm’s New York office.
