Not all financially distressed companies are alike. Some are pushed to the brink of insolvency by macroeconomic or industry-specific trends. Others face insolvency suddenly, following a judgment or cataclysmic event. Ropes & Gray’s restructuring team has experience with a wide spectrum of clients facing all types of financial distress. Our business-oriented strategies have led to overwhelmingly successful restructurings for our debtor clients.
