From its founding, RK&O has focused on representing investors and “strategics” that take control or activist positions in troubled or distressed companies across a broad range of industries and asset classes. RK&O’s focus on helping clients analyze credit structures, identify fulcrum securities and restructure those securities, both in and out of court, have placed the firm in the forefront of some of the most challenging and nuanced restructuring engagements. We also frequently represent investors looking to make rescue, debtor-in-possession and exit loans to troubled companies. more +
In addition to its creditor and strategic representations, the firm also represents borrowers of all types and sizes when they are in distress, working closely with management and outside advisors to create a strategy for both rehabilitation and future growth.
RK&O’s restructuring attorneys are also leaders in our Lending and Private Equity practice groups and have significant experience representing parties purchasing distressed assets or making investments in troubled companies (both in and out of bankruptcy or through foreclosure sales). The RK&O restructuring team also includes attorneys with extensive litigation experience who are on the forefront of some of the more complex inter- and intra-creditor lending disputes that are shaping the distressed investing and restructuring landscape.
By combining attorneys with deep corporate and litigation experience into one group, RK&O provides clients with a singular team focused on providing sophisticated and cost-effective solutions to complex restructuring matters.
