Our Approach

While every distressed governmental debt issue is unique and tactics evolve over the course of any restructuring, our basic approach always remains the same. We start with a deep understanding of our client’s position and what they want to achieve. We apply our legal skill, industry knowledge, and contacts to learn the client’s rights and remedies under both the legal documents and applicable law. Where a consensual resolution is not available or advisable, we evaluate the best and most efficient litigation strategies in partnership with our client to vigorously represent the client’s interests in any court in the country.
