DLA Piper expands restructuring team in Paris

DLA Piper has appointed David Chijner and Noam Ankri as partners in its restructuring team in Paris. Their arrival is part of the firm’s strategy to become a leading player in restructuring after the integration of nine partners from Frieh Bouhenic in October 2012.

Ankri advises clients, mainly investment funds, on restructuring transactions in both in-court and out-of-court proceedings. He has also been teaching private equity and restructuring at the university for many years.

Chijner is widely renowned in the market for his experience in restructuring and M&A. Specialising in complex restructurings and pre-insolvency situations in an international environment, David has advised most of the major restructuring operations in France in recent years for several investment funds, US and European banks.
