CHICAGO (October 8, 2009) — McDermott Will & Emery LLP is pleased to announce that its Restructuring & Insolvency Practice Group has again been included among the nation’s top legal providers in the just-released 2010 edition of the IFLR1000. Noting that “the stratification between the most capable firms and the rest of the pack is greater than it has been at any time before,” the editors praised McDermott for “steadily building up its bench” and its increased “focus on the overall market.”
Said Geoffrey T. Raicht, co-head of the Firm’s worldwide Restructuring & Insolvency Practice Group, “We are very gratified to receive this recognition in the IFLR1000. This honor is more than just a testament to the legal skills and dedication of our individual lawyers — it also acknowledges the importance of taking bold steps to meet client needs during an era of economic and financial uncertainty.”
The IFLR1000 is the only publication of its kind to focus on the leading law firms for corporate finance worldwide. Now in its 20th edition, the guide has grown to cover more than 100 jurisdictions and is compiled by a team of dedicated specialist legal journalists based in New York, London and Hong Kong. Rankings are based on the recommendations of in-house counsel at the world’s most prominent financial institutions and companies, as well as the leading legal practitioners in each of the markets and regions covered.
McDermott’s globally integrated Restructuring & Insolvency Practice Group comprises more than 40 lawyers. In addition to this most recent ranking in the IFLR1000, the practice and its lawyers have regularly been named among the top U.S. providers of restructuring, bankruptcy and insolvency services by Chambers USA, PLC Cross-Border and the Best Lawyers in America.
