$6.3 billion restructuring of Nordic Aviation Capital helped the company emerge from bankruptcy

NEW YORK – March 21, 2023 — Epiq, a global technology-enabled services leader to the legal industry and corporations, will be recognized tomorrow as The M&A Advisor’s Chapter 11 Reorganization of the Year (over $1 billion). The award honors Epiq’s Corporate Restructuring Group and its role in the $6.3 billion restructuring of Nordic Aviation Capital (NAC).

NAC, the global leader in regional aircraft leasing, successfully emerged from its pre-arranged U.S. Chapter 11 proceedings on June 1, 2022. The award also included McGuire Woods, Clifford Chance LLP, NAC, Ernst & Young LLP, Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP, FTI Consulting, Quinn Emanuel, Katten Rothschild & Co. US Inc., Kirkland & Ellis, Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP, and Kutak Rock for their work in the successful, highly complex restructuring.

The award will be presented tomorrow during the 17th Annual Turnaround Awards ceremony at the 2023 Distressed Investing Sumit. The nominations, representing over 100 participating companies, were judged by an independent panel of industry experts.

“The award winners represent the best of the distressed investing and restructuring industry in 2022 and earned these honors by standing out in a group of very impressive candidates,” said Roger Aguinaldo, Founder and CEO of The M&A Advisor. “Given the volatile nature of business over several years, and in an uncertain, rising-rate environment that is increasingly demanding of its professionals, we have recognized the leading transactions, firms and individuals that represent the highest levels of performance.”
