start quote symbolRestructuring is figuring out how to most creatively and effectively resolve the issues, often through negotiating and pricing, sometimes via litigation when negotiations cannot achieve agreement, but in every case with zeal and determination to achieve our client’s goals. We’ve consistently represented our clients over the years in this manner, and we always appreciate the opportunity to serve them.end quote symbol
William L. Wallander

Co-head of Vinson & Elkins’ Restructuring and Reorganization group, Bill Wallander has led a robust restructuring practice with more than 25 years of experience. A complex commercial problem solver who knows his way around a courtroom, Bill has experience in all phases of distress including out-of-court workout and restructurings, distressed asset acquisitions and divestitures, distressed finance transactions, bankruptcy cases and litigation.

Bill has experience in representing creditors, syndicated bank groups, bondholder groups, non-bank lenders, private equity funds, and debtors, among others. Bill’s experience in complex chapter 11 cases covers all phases of the case including case preparation, financing, M&A, sales, plans of reorganization, post-emergence structuring and trusts, and bankruptcy litigation with substantial experience with fraudulent transfers. Bill has served as a witness in bankruptcy court (A.G. Financial Service Center, Inc. USBC S.D. Indiana), and in a significant state court class action matter on bankruptcy issues and impact. Bill’s practice includes a substantial amount of consulting and advisory work related to finance, M&A, other transactional structuring, and risk management for strategic evaluation and planning.

Chambers has recognized Bill in its nationwide bankruptcy rankings every year since 2004.
