Distressed Investing Forum

On July 31 we took a global walk through quick-paced briefings that examined issues from opioids in the U.S. to Venezuela to the Chinese bubble to the just finalized EU restructuring law directive, with candid discussions that explored distressed investing.

The evening concluded with a cocktail reception on the terrace of our new office overlooking Madison Avenue, where we celebrated our expanded worldwide capabilities with the recent additions of new partners.
