Restructuring partner Clare Cottle has been shortlisted for the Rising Stars Awards Europe 2020 by Euromoney Legal Media Group. The awards recognize “the most promising emerging talents” in an array of practice areas across Europe.
Ms. Cottle is shortlisted as one of the next-generation leaders in Restructuring & Insolvency. She is based in Weil’s London office and her practice focuses on advising on cross-border and domestic debt restructurings.
Ms. Cottle’s recent highlights include both debtor- and creditor-side representations in complex international restructurings. She advised syncreon Group Holdings B.V. in its groundbreaking $1.1 billion cross-border balance sheet restructuring and Skillsoft Corporation in its prepackaged multibillion-dollar chapter 11 restructuring. She also represented Pillarstone Europe LLP in its cross-border restructuring of Famar, an ad hoc group of bondholders in the international restructuring of Edcon, and is counsel to an ad hoc group of senior creditors of Caribbean mobile operator Digicel in relation to a potential restructuring of its $7 billion of debt.
