Business Restructuring and Reorganization



The Business Restructuring and Reorganization Practice Group advises companies in financial distress, their creditors and investors, and parties interested in acquiring assets from companies in distress.  We also guide hedge funds, private equity firms and financial institutions investing in distressed debt and/or equity through the restructuring and bankruptcy process.

Our practice spans a broad spectrum of industries including:

  • Private equity
  • Energy (including oil and gas restructuring)
  • Shipping
  • Airline
  • Real estate and construction
  • Retail
  • Infrastructure
  • Media and technology
  • Health care
  • Insurance
  • Investment banking
  • Manufacturing

Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher also has one of the premier U.S. bankruptcy litigation practices.  Dubbed the “rescue squad” by The American Lawyer, our litigators are deeply skilled in prosecuting and defending the broad range of disputes that arise during the course of a bankruptcy case.  The Business Restructuring and Reorganization group was named one of Law360‘s top five Bankruptcy Practice Groups of 2013, and members of the group have been widely recognized by top industry publications, including Chambers and The Guide to the World’s Leading Insolvency Lawyers.  We have both prosecuted and defended every type of avoidance action, including fraudulent transfer cases and preference matters, equitable subordination and recharacterization litigation, valuation disputes and contested plan confirmation hearings.

Our group excels in the innovative use of Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code to implement restructuring of highly complicated, multijurisdictional, non-U.S. companies.  We regularly represent individual creditors, ad hoc committees and official creditors’ committees in the largest and most complex out-of-court restructurings and Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases.

Gibson Dunn’s international group is a leader in U.S., European and cross-border insolvencies and workouts.  Innovative and practical, the Business Restructuring and Reorganization group is committed to understanding in detail the business of our clients and crafting solutions, including complex out-of-court workouts and in-court restructurings.  We structure out-of-court transactions to provide protection in the event of a future bankruptcy case.  We are also a leading provider of advice on innovative DIP and exit financing agreements to both debtors and DIP providers.

The group’s global restructuring experience, while focused on building consensus, can be supplemented by Gibson Dunn’s extraordinary bankruptcy litigators when a negotiated resolution cannot be reached.  Working with our firm’s Mergers and Acquisitions group, we represent both acquirers and companies seeking to be acquired or to spin off assets, both in and out of bankruptcy court.  This makes Gibson Dunn one of the rare global law firms capable of providing the full array of legal services needed by any company debtor, creditor group or investor, in any distressed business situation.  No matter is too large or complex.

  • Almatis B.V. and its affiliates in their Chapter 11 restructuring.  Almatis is a global leader in the development and production of premium specialty alumina materials, with operations in the United States, the Netherlands, Germany, China, India and Japan.  The restructuring was named as a finalist for “European Restructuring of the Year” by the IFLR for its innovative use of Chapter 11 in a cross-border transaction.

  • THQ Inc. and its U.S. subsidiaries in their Chapter 11 cases in Delaware.  THQ Inc., a global leader in entertainment computer software, operated development studios in the United States, Canada and China and distributed games worldwide through nondebtor subsidiaries in the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan, Korea and Australia.  The cases involved complex cross-border issues in multiple jurisdictions and complex copyright and patent issues and an auction process that resulted in sales of different components of the business to seven different buyers.
  • Pacific Monarch Resorts, Inc. (PMR) and its debtor affiliates in a two-year out-of-court restructuring and sale process that ultimately led to Chapter 11 cases to implement the sale of the operating business.  PMR was a developer and seller of time-share properties throughout the Western United States and Mexico.  The Chapter 11 cases resulted in a sale of the time-share business to Diamond Resorts and separate sale of the portfolio of consumer notes and involved cross-border real estate and tax issues arising from PMR’s Mexican resort.
  • Lehman Brothers Finance AG (the Swiss Lehman affiliate) in its Chapter 15 case arising out of the Chapter 11 cases of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and its affiliates, the SIPA proceedings of Lehman Brothers Inc. and the liquidation in Switzerland of Lehman Brothers Finance AG, which, as a wholly owned subsidiary of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., engaged in non-U.S. derivative transactions on behalf of the Lehman entities and their customers.

  • Fleetwood Enterprises, Inc., and 49 affiliates in their Chapter 11 proceedings resulting in the sale of the RV, manufactured homes and military housing manufacturing units as going concerns to separate buyers.
  • Building Materials Holding Corporation and its affiliates in their successful Chapter 11 cases.  Now known as BMC Select, the company is a leading supplier of building materials and construction services.
  • WorldStrides – An ad hoc group of secured lenders and DIP financing lenders to Lakeland Tours, LLC d/b/a WorldStrides, a leading educational travel provider, in connection with the recapitalization of WorldStrides’ $768 million in funded debt.  As counsel to the ad hoc group of secured lenders and the DIP financing lenders, Gibson Dunn led the negotiation of a restructuring that provided WorldStrides with an immediate infusion of approximately $200 million, reduced WorldStrides’ aggregated debt by $105 million and secured debt obligations by approximately $180 million, preserved the employment of approximately 1,500 individuals worldwide, and facilitated WorldStrides continuing as a going-concern.  The restructuring plan was approved by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York less than two months after the case commenced, and the plan went effective less than a month later.
  • TNT Crane – An ad hoc group of secured lenders to TNT Crane & Rigging Inc. in connection with the company’s significant deleveraging of its balance sheet through a prepackaged plan of reorganization that allowed the Company to fully pay its employees and vendors.  As counsel to the ad hoc group of secured lenders, Gibson Dunn negotiated and structured the new money and exit facilities provided to TNT to allow the company to successfully and efficiently emerge from bankruptcy.  TNT Crane commenced its chapter 11 cases before the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, and the restructuring closed less than two months later.
  • INAP – An ad hoc group of secured lenders to Internap Corporation (“INAP”), a provider of data center infrastructure and cloud solutions, in connection with its restructuring through a prepackaged plan of reorganization.  As counsel to the ad hoc group of secured lenders, Gibson Dunn was instrumental in negotiating and structuring the $5 million bridge loan made to INAP prepetition, the $70 million debtor-in-possession funding, the $75 million secured exit facility, and the new $225 million term loan facility.  INAP was among the first bankruptcy cases during the COVID-19 panic to have its plan confirmed and consummated.
  • Iqor – An ad hoc group of first lien lenders to Iqor Holdings Inc., a leading global provider of technology-enabled business process outsourcing solutions, serving some of the world’s largest, well-known brands, in connection with a prepetition bridge financing and the recapitalization of its funded debt through a prepackaged plan of reorganization that was supported by 100% of creditors that submitted a ballot.  Through their prepackaged chapter 11 cases, iQor will eliminate approximately $513 million in funded debt obligations and leave general unsecured creditors unimpaired.
  • Skillsoft – An ad hoc group of first lien term lenders to Skillsoft Corporation, a learning and talent management enterprise company that serves thousands of organizations across the globe (including approximately 65% of the Fortune 500), in connection with the company’s prearranged chapter 11 cases and $50 million debtor-in-possession financing facility.  Skillsoft’s chapter 11 plan, supported by the ad hoc group of first lien term lenders and an ad hoc group of crossover first lien and second lien lenders, provided for a “two-step” bankruptcy emergence process that resulted in, among other things, (i) the reduction of approximately $1.5 billion in funded debt, (ii) the conversion of the DIP facility into a $110 million new “first out” exit facility, consisting of converted DIP loans and $60 million of new capital, (iii) first lien lenders receiving approximately 96% of reorganized equity and a $410 million “second out” exit facility, and (iv) a post-emergence “favored sale” to a special purpose acquisition vehicle owned by Churchill Capital with a transaction value of approximately $810 million.
  • Constellis – An ad hoc group of priority and first lien term loan lenders to Constellis, a leading provider of essential risk management and mission support services to government and commercial customers worldwide, in connection with the company’s comprehensive debt de-leveraging and recapitalization transactions. The restructuring transactions were supported by 100% of term loan and revolving lenders and resulted in the reduction of approximately $1.1 billion of debt and annual cash interest payments by up to $90 million, while adding up to $50 million in new capital to support operations.
  • Global Eagle – An ad hoc group of first lien term lenders to Global Eagle Entertainment Inc., a leading provider of entertainment, connectivity, and data analytics across the globe with over $855.6 million in outstanding funded debt.  As counsel to the ad hoc group of first lien term lenders, Gibson Dunn led the negotiation and structuring of the DIP financing that provided Global Eagle with working capital during the chapter 11 cases.  Gibson Dunn was instrumental in the negotiation and structuring of the asset purchase agreement that acted as a stalking horse bid for substantially all of Global Eagle’s assets.  The ad hoc group’s stalking horse bid was determined to be the highest and best offer for Global Eagle’s assets, and the sale was approved by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.
  • Clover Technologies – An ad hoc group of secured lenders to Clover Technologies Group, LLC, a recycler of cell phones, inkjets, and printer replacement parts and print management software, in connection with two prepetition M&A transactions and its restructuring of $650 million of secured indebtedness through a prepackaged plan of reorganization.  The matter involved the novel pre-bankruptcy filing sale of Clover’s printer cartridge remanufacturing business for over $200 million and synergistic acquisition of an international wireless device refurbishment provider by Clover’s remaining wireless device business.  Those transactions were immediately followed by a prepackaged chapter 11 filing, which implemented the consensual equitization of the vast majority of Clover’s term loan indebtedness.  Clover commenced its chapter 11 cases before the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, and the restructuring closed less than two months later.
  • David’s Bridal – An ad hoc group of secured lenders to David’s Bridal, a leading bridal retailer, in connection with the recapitalization of David’s Bridal’s $425 million capital structure.  As counsel to the ad hoc group of secured lenders, Gibson Dunn led the negotiation and structuring of a transformative recapitalization transaction that resulted in the provision of $55 million of new capital by members of the ad hoc group to fund growth investments.
  • One Call – A group of first-lien lenders under One Call Corporation’s over $930 million first-lien facility, in connection with One Call’s out-of-court restructuring of its more than $2 billion capital structure.  One Call is a leading provider of specialized solutions to the workers’ compensation industry, standing as the intermediary between the payer of the claim and the provider of medical services.  The lenders’ group was involved in proposing and negotiating potential deal structures to provide One Call with enhanced liquidity, a de-levered capital structure, and a path forward towards successful future operations.  The company completed an out-of-court restructuring that reduced its debt by nearly $1 billion.
  • Won a unanimous affirmance by the Second Circuit of dismissals of all common-law tort claims brought against UBS by Irving Picard, Trustee for the liquidation of Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities, LLC (BLMIS) based on UBS’s role as a service provider for international “feeder funds” that invested in BLMIS.  The district court had dismissed all common-law tort claims, including aiding and abetting fraud, aiding and abetting breach of fiduciary duty, conversion, unjust enrichment and contribution, holding that the Trustee lacked standing.  In affirming the district court, the Second Circuit held that the doctrine of in pari delicto precluded the Trustee from suing on behalf of the BLMIS estate, and the Trustee lacked standing to sue on behalf of BLMIS customers.
  • Resolved groundbreaking, multibillion-dollar litigation by NML Capital, Ltd. (an affiliate of Elliott Management Corporation) against the Republic of Argentina when Argentina paid NML more than $2.4 billion to satisfy NML’s claims on the country’s defaulted bonds.  This settlement marked the conclusion of what the Financial Times called the “sovereign debt trial of the century” and ended 13 years of litigation following Argentina’s default in 2001 on more than $80 billion in external debt.  While most of Argentina’s creditors accepted new bonds, worth much less, in exchange for the repudiated bond obligations, NML chose to fight.  After securing judgments, attachments and injunctions against Argentina, the tide turned with two decisive U.S. Supreme Court victories won for NML by Gibson Dunn.  Still unwilling to comply, Argentina continued to resist – and suffer the consequences – until the Republic’s new president initiated negotiations with creditors and the settlement agreement was reached.
  • Secured a settlement for Lehman Brothers Finance AG that resulted in the return of nearly $90 million to Lehman Brothers Finance, in connection with claims brought by Millennium International relating to a call option transaction involving more than $100 million in shares that was in the process of being unwound at the time of Lehman’s collapse.
  • Secured a favorable, unanimous jury verdict in the District of Nevada on behalf of Rio Properties, LLC (known as the “Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino”), a subsidiary of Caesars Entertainment, with respect to 60 of 66 alleged fraudulent transfers totaling millions of dollars, or 91 percent of the transfers at issue.  Gibson Dunn successfully withdrew the reference from the Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California and transferred the case to the district court.  After a two-week trial, the jury found that Rio had acted in good faith in accepting cashier’s checks from a known customer and permitting him to gamble.  The customer later pled guilty to mail fraud in connection with transactions involving National Consumer Mortgage, the company from which he obtained the funds to purchase the cashier’s checks.
  • Canyon Capital Advisors, Farallon Capital Management, Luxor Capital Partners and Whitebox Advisors, as lenders to General Growth Properties, Inc., (GGP), one of the largest shopping mall owners/operators in the United States, in a contested auction process to provide a $400 million DIP financing facility that was convertible to post-reorganization common stock of GGP.
  • Farallon Capital Management as a major prepetition secured lender of LyondellBasell Industries, one of the world’s largest plastics, chemical and refining companies, in connection with Farallon’s participation in Lyondell’s $8 billion DIP financing.  This unique and notable financing authorized a significant non-pro rata roll-up of the prepetition debt.
  • A “New Money” lender in connection with a $400 million DIP financing of Chemtura.
  • Two prepetition lenders in their participation in Smurfit-Stone’s $750 million DIP financing.
  • Argonaut Ventures, the largest shareholder and prepetition creditor (with investments in excess of $1 billion) of solar company Solyndra, LLC in connection with Solyndra’s high-profile Chapter 11 case in the District of Delaware.  Argonaut provided Solyndra’s DIP financing and was also the principal sponsor of Solyndra’s confirmed Chapter 11 plans.  Once the darling of Wall Street, Solyndra received extensive press coverage as a result of federal government loans to the failed solar company exceeding $500 million.
  • Whippoorwill Associates, Inc. as prepetition bondholder, DIP financing lender, and backstop rights offering party in connection with the Chapter 11 restructuring of Loehmann’s Discount Department Stores, a national U.S. retail chain.
  • Garrison Investment Group and its affiliates in the restructuring of its investment in Church Street Health Management, Inc.  Garrison acted as the lead DIP lender, stalking horse bidder, and purchaser implemented through a sale under Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code pursuant to which Garrison credit bid its DIP and prepetition secured debt.
  • Paulson & Co. in the bankruptcy case of Extended Stay Hotels in which Paulson, together with Centerbridge and Blackstone, acquired the Extended Stay Hotels as the owner and operator of nearly 700 hotel properties across the United States.
  • Luxor Capital Partners as the majority bondholder and rights-offering backstop party, in the acquisition of William Lyon Homes, a leading homebuilder in California, Nevada and Arizona, implemented through a prepackaged Chapter 11 case filed in the District of Delaware.
  • Microsoft in connection with the $4.5 billion sale of Nortel’s patent portfolio.
  • A joint venture of the Gores Group and Siemens in connection with the $900 million auction of Nortel’s Enterprise Solutions business.
  • SK Telecom in connection with the $321 million sale of substantially all of the assets of Blockbuster Inc. under Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code.
  • Castleton Commodities (fka Louis Dreyfus Highbridge Energy) in its acquisition of the Roseton power generation facility from Dynegy, Inc. as part of Dynegy’s bankruptcy case.

  • Chinese audio component manufacturer GGEC America Inc. in the cross-border acquisition of U.S. audio equipment manufacturer AuraSound Inc. through a Section 363 sale.
  • Taylor Fresh Foods, North America’s leading producer of salads, fresh-cut vegetables and healthy fresh foods, in its acquisition of substantially all the assets of Gourmet Kitchens, Inc., headquartered in Chicago, through a Section 363 sale.
  • Advised Heart of La Défense Sarl (‘Hold’)/Dame S.à r.l as the owners of Coeur Défense, the largest single office complex in Europe, including its acquisition of the complex in 2007, its subsequent landmark restructuring and most recently, its sale.  Our restructuring work helped the French CMBS debtor and its offshore SPV to obtain French court protection (in a procedure resembling the U.S. Chapter 11 proceedings) while working through the restructuring.  The numerous court decisions obtained by our restructuring team were described by French publications as being “at the heart of the legal news, at the heart of the business world, of the complexities of the financial world and of the crisis which affects the world economy” and “having more decorations than a general of the red army.”
  • Assisted Verbund’s French subsidiary, Poweo Pont-sur-Sambre (PSS) in connection with the opening of a safeguard procedure, leading to the termination of a Long Term Gas Supply Agreement (running until 2023) linking PSS’s Combined Cycle Gas Turbine to Italian energy giant ENI.  Our restructuring team then advised with regards to the long-term future of the assets and the analysis of the available options ultimately leading to a sale to KKR.  The use of the safeguard procedure was instrumental in creating options for the monetization of Verbund’s assets in France.
  • Represented hedge funds in court proceedings in London and Paris in the restructuring of £6 billion debt of the Eurotunnel Group of companies.  We were instrumental in obtaining a landmark French Supreme Court ruling, praised as a “welcome and long awaited decision,” that reversed long-established case law on the creditor’s lack of standing to challenge the opening of a bankruptcy proceeding in France.
  • Represented the noteholders (comprising Apollo Management, UBS, Merrill Lynch International, GLG Partners and Jabre Capital) in relation to the restructuring of, and enforcement action relating to, $100 million Guaranteed Senior Notes issued by Mobile-8 Telecom Finance Company B.V. and guaranteed by PT Mobile-8 Telekom Tbk, an Indonesian cellular phone operator.
