Cross-Border & International Insolvency Representations
In our increasingly global economy, the impacts of financial distress can be far-reaching, crossing borders and implicating the laws of jurisdictions outside of the United States. Part of Vinson & Elkins’ strength in its U.S. Restructuring & Reorganization practice is its depth of experience in myriad industries and talented lawyers in diverse practice areas all over the world. That depth and diversity also enables us to work nimbly and collaboratively to achieve client goals and effectuate creative solutions in the face of cross-border and international restructuring and insolvency issues.
Chapter 15 of the Bankruptcy Code is a tool frequently utilized by debtors with the need for cross-border insolvency proceedings involving the laws of the U.S. and other countries.
