Linklaters reveals transatlantic PwC team" />And then there were more.
The Linklaters team advising PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) on Lehman Brothers’ bankruptcy just keeps on growing.
As revealed two weeks ago (TheLawyer.com, 19 September), the firm has already put a mega 20-partner, 60-associate team on the matter in London.
Last week the magic circle firm confirmed that it is pulling out the stops in the US, with New York-based litigation head Larry Byrne and head of US restructuring and insolvency Martin Flics leading a seven-partner, 14-associate team (TheLawyer.com, 25 September).
Two weeks ago, when Byrne appeared for PwC at Lehman’s bankruptcy filing, the list of US partners needed at Linklaters was still to be decided. Now it is clear that joining Byrne and Flics are fellow New York partners Adam Glass in structured finance, Mary Warren in bankruptcy, litigator Paul Hessler, Joshua Berick in corporate and Sabrena Silver in banking.
Linklaters now has a fully formed transatlantic team similar to that used on Enron’s 2002 bankruptcy filing. And like Tony Bugg in London, who took the lead on Enron, Byrne is no stranger to the Enron case.
Since 2002 Byrne has been advising Deutsche Bank on all of its Enron-related disputes stateside. Handy epic experience by way of preparation for Lehman.
