Our Practice

Hughes Hubbard’s Corporate Reorganization & Bankruptcy group represents companies, creditors and trustees in complex restructurings—both in and out of court—and in the multiple types of litigation that insolvency proceedings generate. Deeply experienced and commercially-savvy deal lawyers with a full team of stand-up litigators, our group consists of more than 40 lawyers located across five offices, including Paris, which serves as the hub of our European practice, and Miami, where our Latin American practice is centered.

Having achieved 100 percent recoveries for customers and distributing billions to creditors in the liquidations of Lehman Brothers Inc. and MF Global Inc., the largest and eighth largest bankruptcies in history, and having represented the receiver of Washington Mutual, the largest failed bank to date, our group is particularly well known in the area of financial services insolvency. We also have extensive experience in restructurings involving aviation, commodities, energy, manufacturing, media and entertainment, retail, shipping and technology.

The group’s prowess is routinely recognized by The Deal, Chambers USA and Legal 500. We count among our group a fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy, a contributing author to the leading bankruptcy treatise Collier on Bankruptcy and a Law360 Bankruptcy MVP. We have been recognized nationally as a “Practice Group of the Year.”
