Restructurings are, by their nature, both international and deeply domestic. Understanding the commonalities, but also the differences, in black letter law and common practice in this area is thus critical.

The third edition of The Guide to Restructuring – edited by Joy K Gallup and and Michael L Fitzgerald of Baker McKenzie – is designed to assist restructuring advisers of all disciplines, and affected companies, as they negotiate complicated restructurings. This Guide delivers specialist insight to our readers across the region – advisers, practitioners, corporate decision-makers and court officials – to help them navigate this complex process.
