Schulte Roth & Zabel partner Doug Mintz was featured in the latest issues of Turnarounds & Workouts where he discussed the restructuring activity of 2023 and shared his insights on what is in store for the restructuring industry in 2024.
He explained how the firm saw an uptick in restructuring activity in 2023 and introduced the special situations team to strategically address the massive market changes. Doug also detailed how increased liquidity in the market has led to higher credit costs and interest rates. He stated that the biggest challenge facing restructuring advisers is the ever-accelerating nature of the restructuring process. While this acceleration creates opportunities for more creative dealmaking, it also comes with its own set of challenges.
Doug also shared his perspective on the potential outcome and impact of the Harrington v. Purdue Pharma L.P. Supreme Court matter, which he considers one of the most important bankruptcy matters of 2023. He said the case could reshape corporate accountability and affect the ability of victims to seek redress.
