Weil Wins “Restructuring Team of the Year” at the 2016 Legal Business Awards

Weil was awarded “Restructuring Team of the Year” at the Legal Business Awards for its work on the Ukraine sovereign debt restructuring deal.

Weil advised on Ukraine’s $18 billion sovereign debt restructuring – it advised the ad hoc creditors’ committee (“AHC”) which consisted of four members, including Ukraine’s single largest bondholder, Franklin Templeton, and represented approximately $10 billion of the $22 billion being restructured.

The Weil team was led by restructuring partners Andrew Wilkinson and Alexander Wood, supported by a team of lawyers across its London and New York offices.

It was Legal Business’ 19th annual awards ceremony, which took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London. The Legal Business awards recognize the leading individuals and teams in the legal industry.
