We are authorities in the U.S., the U.K. and Asia, but we have uniquely long-standing experience and perspective on cross-border workouts and insolvencies across the globe. We were pioneers of the cross-border workout/insolvency advisory industry, and we have made this work a strategic focus for more than 25 years. Bingham’s Financial Restructuring Group is recognized as one of the world’s leading global restructuring practices. We provide strategic and creative advice and solutions concerning troubled investments and loans worldwide.
We have been working for creditors at the epicenter of each recent financial crisis. We restructured numerous U.S. credits in the wake of the S&L crisis of the late 1990s, Latin American credits in the wake of its regional crises in the 1990s and early 2000s, and East Asian credits in the wake of that region's currency crisis in the early 2000s. In the midst of the current crisis, we have had a significant role advising institutions in a number of European restructurings. This work has provided us deep perspective on causes and consequences, policy possibilities and ramifications, and the best strategic pathways for our clients.
We are excellent lawyers, but our core skill is in understanding our clients’ objectives, assessing the commercial and financial prospects and limits of the situation, proposing solutions that match the situation, and implementing the chosen solution, at all times remaining focused on why the clients have hired us. We know when to fight and when to deal, and we deploy both approaches skillfully.
