Our client, a Texas-HQ law firm, is searching for a growth hire in its top-rate Restructuring team at the junior-to-mid level.
This team handles issues in large and complex out-of-court restructurings and Chapter 11 reorganization cases for both debtors and lenders. Clients rely on their deep understanding of the day-to-day operational and financial issues impacting their companies, as well as the economic and political trends that affect virtually every industry, including oil and gas, real estate, metals and mining, manufacturing, distribution, transportation, healthcare, homebuilding, restaurant and retail, and technology.
Their clients include more than 100 Fortune 500 companies, many major foreign companies and large financial institutions. Their strengths include:
- Advising boards of directors of distressed and failing companies
- Representing debtors, creditors’ committees, senior debt holders, subordinated debt holders, ad hoc groups of creditors and equity security holders
- Representing administrative agents and lenders in syndicated loan facilities
- Representing buyers in distressed M&A transactions
- Representing operating and liquidation trustees
- Representing key suppliers, landlords and tenants of distressed retail and manufacturing companies
- Handling complex litigation in bankruptcy and federal district courts
The firm is headquartered in Texas; as such it takes pride in its fantastic ethos and focus on wellbeing and maintaining a healthy work/life balance. Its Partners and Associates are involved in business development, and are encouraged to be leaders in knowledge management and leading diversity or pro bono initiatives.
One of the key sells of this law firm is that while it pays market rate, it tries incredibly hard to keep away from the ‘BigLaw’ experience – attorneys average 50-hour weeks and associates are encouraged to fully take their vacation leave and turn off their phones while they are away. Caregiver leave is very generous, and the culture is described as ‘kind and considerate, down-to-earth’ and a place where ‘a lot of people have families’.
Candidates must be qualified in New York.
