Bates White’s experts have long-established reputations as thought leaders in bankruptcy and restructuring valuation-related services. We combine decades of experience in financial, economic, and statistical analyses with expertise in fraud investigations, contingent liability estimation, and matters related to industry custom and practice. We advise debtors, creditors, courts, trustees, insurers, governments, and other interested parties in connection with major bankruptcies, restructurings, dissolutions, and related litigation matters. Our role as economic advisors, experts in liability and tort valuation, and consultants on many of the largest and most complex corporate restructurings in recent history reflects both our unparalleled expertise and professional standards.

Bates White experts have provided analysis and opinions that parties and courts have relied on in connection with the resolution of adversary proceedings, plan confirmation, and dissolution proceedings. Our Bankruptcy and Restructuring Practice is strengthened by our subject matter expertise in private equity and hedge funds, M&A litigation, tax controversy, intellectual property valuation, energy, mass torts, and product liability.

Bates White has developed, defined, and redefined approaches that bankruptcy courts have recognized as the premier market standard in mass tort contingency valuation. We have led the way in recognizing how the economics of litigation interacts with the claim generation process to better forecast liabilities.
