As the future of restructuring expands beyond U.S. borders, Hampton Foushee's experience in both New York and London uniquely positions him to help debtors, creditors, and other stakeholders successfully navigate the restructuring landscape in the United States and abroad.

Ever since advising the city of Detroit on its bankruptcy proceedings during law school, Hampton has been drawn to the restructuring world's unique opportunities for creative deal-making that demand both business acumen and legal assertiveness.
