Sullivan & Cromwell
SULLIVAN & CROMWELL LLP PROVIDES THE HIGHEST QUALITY LEGAL ADVICE AND REPRESENTATION TO CLIENTS AROUND THE WORLD
Sullivan & Cromwell LLP provides the highest quality legal advice and representation to clients around the world. The results the Firm achieves have set it apart for more than 140 years and have become a model for the modern practice of law. Today, S&C is a leader in each of its core practice areas and in each of its geographic markets.
S&C’s success is the result of the quality of its lawyers, the most broadly and deeply trained collection of attorneys in the world. The Firm’s lawyers work as a single partnership without geographic division. S&C hires the very best law school graduates and trains them to be generalists within broad practice areas. The Firm promotes lawyers to partner almost entirely from among its own associates. The result is a partnership with a unique diversity of experience, a culture of collaboration, exceptional professional judgment and a demonstrated history of innovation.
Clients of the Firm are nearly evenly divided between U.S. and non-U.S. entities. They include industrial and commercial companies; financial institutions; private funds; governments; educational, charitable and cultural institutions; and individuals, estates and trusts. S&C’s client base is exceptionally diverse, a result of the Firm’s extraordinary capacity to tailor work to specific client needs.
S&C’s restructuring and bankruptcy litigation practice has been involved in a number of the most significant restructuring matters in recent years. Our business model rests on three competitive strengths:
- Multidisciplinary Excellence. A significant corporate reorganization is a multidisciplinary assignment. Few firms match the quality of S&C across the major corporate and litigation disciplines. S&C is unique in its ability to handle all elements of a corporate restructuring – whether or not an insolvency proceeding may be used as a tool – with world-class resources. In Europe all of the restructuring partners are New York and English qualified.
- Innovative Techniques. We approach a restructuring situation as sophisticated deal lawyers, with broad experience in corporate law, finance law and global transactional practice. We are equally comfortable with bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy execution paths. In bankruptcy, our cases are marked by the successful adoption of innovative capital markets and M&A techniques to the legal requirements of Chapter 11 or foreign insolvency regimes.
- Specialization in Going Concern Reorganizations. We specialize in going concern reorganizations. As a result, we have a different mindset, culture and toolbox than generalist ‘bankruptcy’ lawyers.
S&C comprises over 875 lawyers who serve clients around the world through a network of 13 offices, located in leading financial centers in Asia, Australia, Europe and the United States. The Firm is headquartered in New York.
