Weil was recently named among the top firms globally for cross-border restructuring and insolvency matters in the inaugural edition of Global Restructuring Review’s GRR 100. The Firm earned this distinctive accolade based on its outstanding quality of work, global network and presence, prestigious client list, and excellent track record, among other factors.
The publication credited Weil with “birthing the modern-day bankruptcy practice” and emphasized the Firm’s leading role in numerous high-profile bankruptcies over the past fifty years, including five of the six largest bankruptcy filings in history and marquee clients such as Lehman Brothers Holdings, General Motors, Enron and WorldCom. The Firm was also lauded for its current debtor and creditor-side roles in 10 of the largest U.S. bankruptcies of 2016 and for its representation of the Ad Hoc Creditors’ Committee in Ukraine’s groundbreaking sovereign debt restructuring.
Weil also won the “Large Law Firm that Impressed” award at GRR’s Charity Awards, one of nine special honors for notable cases and developments over the past year. The ceremony was held in London on June 21 and paid tribute to the best and brightest in the field.
The GRR 100 is an annual guide to the world’s leading cross-border restructuring and insolvency practices. GRR’s process for selecting the top restructuring and insolvency practices around the world involved a number of selection criteria, including an in-depth analysis of firms’ top cases, the number of partners featured in Who’s Who Legal: Restructuring & Insolvency (a guide published by GRR’s parent company), global locations and capabilities, and client lists, among others.
