Goldman Sachs restructuring supremo James Sprayregen has shocked the New York legal market with a return to his former law firm, Kirkland & Ellis.
Sprayregen was co-head of Goldman Sachs’ Americas restructuring group for the past three years, after leaving Kirkland & Ellis to join the bank in 2006. He will rejoin the firm this month as co-head of its 41-partner restructuring practice.
Sprayregen’s first stint at Kirkland lasted 16 years.
During that time he worked on top company insolvencies including NRG Energy and airline TWA.
Sprayregen was one of two high-profile restructuring hires for Goldman Sachs over the past two years.
In 2007 Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft London managing partner Andrew Wilkinson joined the bank’s restructuring department (The Lawyer, 8 March 2007).
