Cadwalader’s Restructuring Practice Lauded by the IFLR1000 for Its Development Over Five Years

Jan 20, 2009

Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP, one of the world’s leading international law firms, was named by the IFLR1000 as one of the top five most improved U.S. restructuring and insolvency practices over the last five years. The publication also found Cadwalader’s practice to be one of the top eight in the country in its 2009 guide.

The IFLR1000 noted that the addition of Deryck Palmer, John Rapisardi, Andrew Troop, and George Davis had greatly improved Cadwalader’s standing and quoted an attorney at another firm as saying, “They are certainly building up a prominent and busy bankruptcy practice and getting high-profile cases.” The publication goes on to relay a client’s opinion about Cadwalader: “They are fantastic. From my standpoint, they are the type that understands how to get the deal done. Transactions are one thing, but really being able to think through business strategies, that’s where the difference lies. They are phenomenal.”

“I was pleased to see the fine work of our Financial Restructuring Department recognized by the IFLR1000,” said Chris White, Cadwalader’s Chairman. “To have clients comment positively on our abilities is especially gratifying, since crafting solutions for the business and legal issues facing our clients is the focus of our practice.”

The IFLR 1000's rankings reflect the opinions of clients and competitors of law firms, which are gathered during an extensive interview process.
