Weil was recently named among the top firms globally for cross-border restructuring and insolvency matters in the 2019 edition of Global Restructuring Review’s GRR 30. The Firm earned this distinct accolade based on its outstanding quality of work, global network and presence, prestigious client list, and excellent track record, among other factors.
The publication credited Weil with “birthing the modern-day bankruptcy practice” and emphasized the Firm’s leading role in numerous high-profile bankruptcies over the past 50 years, including five of the six largest bankruptcy filings in U.S. history and marquee clients such as Lehman Brothers Holdings, General Motors, Enron and WorldCom. The Firm was lauded for its recent representations of Dana Gas, Takata, Sears, Waypoint Leasing Holdings, China Fishery Group, Westinghouse and Paragon Offshore, to name a few.
The GRR 30 is an annual guide to the world’s leading cross-border restructuring and insolvency practices, and is an elite selection chosen from the most recent GRR 100. GRR’s process for selecting the top restructuring and insolvency practices around the world involved a number of criteria, including an in-depth analysis of firms’ top 10 cases from the previous year, as well as the firm’s performance in Who’s Who Legal: Restructuring & Insolvency (a guide published by GRR’s parent company).
