Ropes & Gray Receives “Finance Deal of the Year: Insolvency & Restructuring” Award from The Asian Lawyer
On March 3, The Asian Lawyer hosted the second annual Asian Legal Awards celebrating the best examples of high-stakes legal work occurring in the region and honored Ropes & Gray with the “Finance Deal of the Year: Insolvency & Restructuring.”
The award recognizes the firm’s work advising an ad hoc committee of bondholders of LDK Solar Co. Ltd.’s New York law-governed 10 percent senior notes, in the context of a wider restructuring of LDK’s offshore liabilities. This was a cross-border matter with parallel proceedings in the United States, the Cayman Islands and Hong Kong.
This award comes just days after Chambers Asia 2015 announced its rankings, which position Ropes & Gray among the best law firms in the region, and follows the November 2014 release of the Asia Pacific Legal 500 rankings that recognize Ropes & Gray for its leading work in various practices.
