August 14, 2017

New York – August 14, 2017 – Cooley tied for the #1 spot in Debtwire’s recent list of lead counsel committee representations for the first half of 2017. The ranking is part of the publication’s North America First Half 2017 Restructuring Advisory Mandate Report. It follows on the heels of another first place tie – Cooley shares the #1 ranking for most retail engagements in Debtwire’s separate Special Report on Retail Bankruptcy Filings. Cooley is also named #1 overall for most committee retail engagements.

“Cooley’s team plays a critical role in highly complex bankruptcy and restructuring cases,” said Jay Indyke, chair of Cooley’s business restructuring and reorganization practice group. “This kind of recognition speaks to both the volume and quality of our work in this space.”

Cooley’s business restructuring & reorganization practice is a recognized leader, playing key roles in some of the most complex and high profile cases. The firm has extensive experience representing creditors’ committees, debtors, equity committees, mechanics lienholder committees, shareholder committees, and employee and retiree committees in chapter 11 proceedings, out-of-court restructurings, restructuring and company dissolution, credit finance and distressed mergers & acquisitions.
