Latham & Watkins Announces Second Edition Insolvency Litigation Guide

June 2, 2023
Members of the firm’s Restructuring & Special Situations and Bankruptcy Litigation & Creditors’ Rights Practices serve as consulting editors and authors for the cross-border reference guide.

Latham & Watkins is pleased to contribute to the second edition of Lexology’s Getting The Deal Through Insolvency Litigation guide. Partners George Davis, Suzzanne Uhland, Adam Goldberg, and Christopher Harris again served as consulting editors. The guide was published in partnership with Lexology – a comprehensive source of international legal updates, analysis, and insights – covering more than a dozen global jurisdictions, including chapters on insolvency litigation laws in the US, UK, Spain, France, and Germany contributed by Latham lawyers.

Lexology Getting The Deal Through provides thought leadership from leading lawyers addressing key questions across jurisdictions allowing practitioners to compare laws and regulations. Using the Insolvency Litigation guide, which first launched last year, readers can generate cross-border reports in targeted topic areas or create a multi-topic report on a single jurisdiction. The comprehensive guide enables side-by-side comparison of local insights, including: pre-litigation considerations; avoidance actions; claims against directors, officers, and shareholders; creditor actions and strategic considerations; pre-insolvency debtor claims; other claims against creditors and debtors; cross-border considerations; remedies and enforcement; settlement and mediation; and recent trends.

“We welcomed the opportunity to continue to play a key role in helping drive the legal community’s understanding of the challenging and often fast-paced world of insolvency litigation,” said George Davis, Global Chair of the Restructuring & Special Situations Practice. “The easy-to-use reference culls key legal issues surrounding insolvency litigation to serve as a go-to guide for lawyers around the world seeking to more effectively advise on complex matters.”

Latham advises the full array of stakeholders involved with financially distressed businesses, including debtors and issuers of both public and private securities, all types of creditors, equity holders, new investors, boards of directors, and senior management teams. Combining practical commercial insight and a nuanced understanding of today’s most innovative financial structures, the firm drives consensus and lays out a clear and confident vision for the best path forward.
