Crowell & Moring's restructuring, bankruptcy and creditors' rights lawyers in the US, Europe, the middle east and Asia, advise clients on financial restructurings, distressed business sales and acquisitions and litigation across the globe. We provide counsel to lenders, investors, companies, creditors, committees, debtors, trustees insolvency practitioners and all other stakeholder in bankruptcies, litigation, receiverships, reorganizations, workouts, and both formal and informal restructurings.

With our broad perspective and deep knowledge of the financial services industry, we excel at developing legal solutions that deploy the appropriate resources efficiently and in the most cost-effective manner to respond proactively to our clients’ needs. We understand the time-sensitive nature of our clients' matters and will move quickly to provide advice and take the appropriate action without losing sight of our clients’ longer-term opportunities and objectives. We are your business partners in the truest sense.

We represent clients from throughout the financial services industry — including federal- and state-chartered banks, investment banks, opportunity and hedge funds, private equity firms, distressed investors, commercial finance companies, insurance companies, servicers, and real estate companies - in matters involving virtually every sector of the economy and in a wide spectrum of industries.

When disputes arise, we advise creditors on and litigate matters involving non-performing loans, forbearance and workout agreements, foreclosures and UCC sales, receiverships, and other exit strategies. We also regularly represent and advise clients in connection with commercial bankruptcy proceedings in the US, the UK, and globally, including matters involving plans of reorganization, schemes of arrangements, formal insolvency procedures, use of cash collateral, debtor-in-possession loans, avoidance actions, and asset sales. In addition, our lawyers have experience representing clients in novel and cutting-edge issues, particularly in mass tort bankruptcy matters, the restructuring of national and multi-national, multi-outlet corporates and matters involving distressed debt and equity.
