Cadwalader and Bremond & Associés, a leading French restructuring law firm, are pleased to announce the formation of a joint strategic alliance to pursue restructuring opportunities in the French market.
The alliance between Cadwalader and Bremond, both of which will continue to remain independent partnerships, is the result of the two firms working successfully together on a number of complex cross-border transactions involving French issuers and assets.
Cadwalader has developed one of the leading London-based European restructuring practices, led by partners Gregory Petrick and Yushan Ng. The firm’s depth of expertise across restructuring and insolvency, special situations, distressed M&A and distressed investing, has enabled Cadwalader to help buy side clients successfully navigate complex multi-jurisdictional restructurings and achieve their desired outcomes whether that is, as an existing creditor or new investor.
Led by Guilhem Bremond, a leading practitioner in the French restructuring market, Bremond’s tier-one restructuring team represents clients on a wide variety of matters ranging from distressed LBOs to in-court proceedings. With more than 20 lawyers, the firm’s restructuring group is known for its deep understanding of business situations and its creative talent in finding solutions.
Patrick Quinn, managing partner of Cadwalader, commented “We are pleased to have formed a joint strategic alliance with this leading French law firm. Bremond's deep experience in the French restructuring and insolvency market combined with Cadwalader's expertise as international counsel in negotiating and delivering successful outcomes in complex multi-jurisdictional restructuring matters, allows us to provide clients with high quality legal advice and commercial, creative solutions in the increasingly sophisticated French restructuring market.”
Partner Delphine Caramalli, head of the European Restructuring practice of Bremond, added “This alliance between our two firms is aimed at offering international clients access to the best opportunities in the French market while providing high standards of legal services by widely revered multi-jurisdictional lawyers.”
