Santamarina y Steta SC - Bankruptcy/Restructuring Department

Band 1

第一等

Chambers Commentary (based on the Chambers research)

What the team is known for Revered practice in the insolvency arena boasting particularly strong coverage of this field through its capabilities across both out-of-court debt restructuring and bankruptcy litigation. Frequently retained by Mexican subsidiaries of multinational companies on the debtor side, enjoying an equally enviable reputation among domestic and foreign creditors. Remains involved in some of the most high-profile insolvency mandates in the energy, real estate and construction industries.

Strengths A client enthuses: "They are a very good firm; the lawyers are very business-oriented and really understand their clients' needs. They are flexible, have business acumen and turn things around quickly."

A peer notes: "Santamarina y Steta is perhaps unique in that it is very strong on both the transactional and litigation sides of the practice area."

Work highlights Acted for Corporación Geo on the restructuring of approximately USD4.5 billion of debt.

Notable practitioners

Department co-head Fernando del Castillo receives ample praise from clients, who enthuse: "He is one of the top lawyers in this area; he has a lot of knowledge and a creative mindset." Peers go on to describe him as "an extraordinary lawyer who offers strong capabilities in both restructuring and bankruptcy litigation." His recent work highlights include acting as debtors' counsel to a number of companies involved in high-profile debt restructurings such as Corporación Geo and Abengoa México, also providing advice to creditors on obtaining recognition of their registered creditor status.

About the Team (content provided by Santamarina y Steta SC)

We advised our clients on debt restructurings, whether representing debtors or creditors through the challenges involved in private reorganizations involving multiple creditors or multiple jurisdictions. In keeping with our guiding principles, we protect our clients’ interests while achieving a fair and equitable reorganization for all stakeholders involved and keeping an eye toward a successful exit from bankruptcy.

Our firm has been heavily involved in representing clients in some of the most notorious insolvency proceedings and restructurings going on now in Mexico, combining the expertise available in several practice areas within the firm.

Often our clients have operations on both sides of the border, Mexico and the US, and cross-border restructurings raise complicated issues involving the laws of both countries. In such cases the firm has been active in the analysis of laws and practices of the two jurisdictions to formulate a thorough strategy, teaming up with foreign counsel. Certain cases have involved parallel proceedings under Chapter 15 of the US Bankruptcy Code for the Mexican insolvency proceedings to be recognized by the US courts and protect the assets of the client in the US from foreclosure or attachment.

We have participated in cases involving out-of-court restructurings and also in the filing of a “pre-packaged” insolvency proceeding, which has proven to be a solution for troubled but otherwise healthy companies to come out of the crisis.

About the Team (content provided by Von Wobeser y Sierra, SC)

Von Wobeser y Sierra, S.C. has a solid bankruptcy and restructuring practice. In light of the difficult global economic situation, the Firm has entered a vitally important area in the life of both Mexican and foreign companies, which is the general default on obligations, especially failure to pay, through the implementation of the legal measures necessary to reduce the economic impact these types of problems cause.

The Firm has undertaken the task of training lawyers specialized in the area of commercial insolvency in order to provide our clients legal advice from the point of view of both the creditors and the debtors or bankrupt entities. Mistakenly, commercial insolvency, previously a declaration of bankruptcy and suspension of payments, has commonly been understood only as a sanction on the defaulting merchant; which is why through our specialized lawyers we inform the client that the commercial insolvency proceeding can be used as a preventive measure and not only as a corrective measure, in order to avoid the bankruptcy of the merchant.

The principal function of this area is to provide clients with the possibility of redirecting their business by obtaining agreements with their creditors that allow them to meet their obligations or liquidating the business satisfactorily paying off the debts owed to the creditors to the greatest extent possible.
