Latham & Watkins Announces Inaugural Insolvency Litigation Guide

February 1, 2022
Firm serves consulting editor and contributing author roles for the cross-border reference guide.

Global Chair of the Restructuring & Special Situations Practice, George Davis, along with partners Suzzanne Uhland, Adam Goldberg, and Christopher Harris served as consulting editors for the first-ever Lexology Getting The Deal Through Insolvency Litigation guide. The project was published in partnership with Lexology — a comprehensive source of international legal updates, analysis, and insights — and covers 13 global jurisdictions, including chapters on insolvency litigation laws in the US, UK, Spain, France, and Germany authored by Latham lawyers. 

Lexology Getting The Deal Through provides thought leadership from leading legal experts answering the same key questions in each jurisdiction featured allowing practitioners to compare laws and regulations between jurisdictions. Readers can seamlessly create tailored cross-border reports in targeted topic areas or build a multi-topic report on a single jurisdiction. The reference guide enables quick side-by-side comparisons 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 are pleased to have been invited to share our expertise across practices and jurisdictions for this inaugural guide,” said partner and Consulting Editor Suzzanne Uhland. “The guide synthesizes complex legal nuances into easy-to-digest guidance that helps lawyers around the world more effectively advise on critical insolvency litigation matters.”

Latham advises the full array of stakeholders involved with financially-distressed companies providing strategic and comprehensive counsel allowing clients to surmount varied obstacles that arise in troubled situations. By having both a strong debtor practice alongside a renowned creditor practice, we have the breadth of expertise required to represent any major participant in restructuring, insolvency, and special situations matters across our platform and across the globe.
