Sheppard Mullin brings to bear high-caliber expertise and on-point experience to any complex, multi-jurisdictional restructuring or distressed situation. We routinely represent stakeholders in connection with out-of-court restructuring matters, market-leading corporate and finance transactions, and far-reaching private and governmental investigations. The team is regularly engaged by companies, sponsors, boards of directors, special committees, credit funds, hedge funds, banks, insurance companies, and other asset managers worldwide to advise on unconventional, complicated transactions and deals with dynamics that do not conform to market norms. We excel at adapting to situations as our clients desire and as circumstances demand. On every engagement, the team delivers results with an exceptional level of service by being business-oriented, practical problem-solvers, by evaluating legal risk on a probabilistic—rather than an absolute—basis, and by prioritizing client and commercial objectives over self-pride.

High-Caliber Expertise

We are subject-matter specialists in both the law and the industries in which our clients operate. Our restructuring lawyers are master tacticians and strategists, which skills emanate from a deep understanding of worldwide insolvency regimes. Our corporate lawyers get deals done—period. And our litigators know precisely how to investigate and, if the need arises, litigate complex matters in a highly effective and efficient manner. This legal expertise, however, is only half of the equation. We also offer significant industry know-how.

On-Point Experience

Our expertise was not developed in a vacuum—it has been built through countless representations of clients in real-world, make-or-break matters. We have earned our chops in representations across the restructuring landscape. We have represented debtors, official committees, major secured and unsecured creditors, directors, officers, managers, special committees, lenders, and countless other stakeholders.

Full Service Platform

We have the resources of a global law firm comprising over 1,000 lawyers, including practitioners in the key ancillary practice areas most often called on to advise on specific aspects of restructuring transactions. In addition, we often leverage industry specialists with fundamental market intelligence and our regulatory knowledge gained from advising some of the largest businesses in the world on regulatory matters in more than a dozen highly regulated industries.
