Silent partners make some noise

In the wake of recent market volatility, restructuring partners have been thrust into the media spotlight once again. After several years of a bull market, these lawyers have been able to slink into the shadows and leave the headline-grabbing to their high-flying corporate and banking counterparts.

While it has been easy for these partners to play the shy celebrity for the last four years, their days of keeping shtoom look set to be numbered.

Partners admit that they have experienced a sharp increase in enquiries from clients relating to restructuring, so these guys would be well advised to brush up on their media skills before another Marconi comes along.
