Weil Gotshal's Texas-based bankruptcy group is an essential component of the firm's leading international business finance and restructuring practice. Some of the firm's most significant matters have involved leading roles for Texas partners, including the debtor-side representations of Lehman Brothers, Dallas Stars and DSI Holdings. The team is currently playing a prominent role for American Airlines' parent company AMR during its high-profile Chapter 11 case. Weil is renowned for its debtor-side expertise but is not limited to such engagements, having recently advised Macquarie Capital on the Reddy Ice Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Sources say: "They clearly have a lot of resources and very experienced restructuring lawyers who are known and respected by judges; that is very important to us."
