Katten's downtown Los Angeles office opened in 2012 with the addition of a team of restructuring, insolvency and finance partners. This office is one of four California offices (Orange County, Century City, and Oakland) that enable our attorneys from across the firm to better serve our West Coast, Southwest and Pacific Rim clients. Attorneys in our downtown Los Angeles office handle sophisticated restructuring/insolvency engagements, commercial finance, litigation, and high-level banking matters nationally and internationally. Clients include institutional lenders, investment and private equity funds, indenture trustees and bondholders, official and unofficial creditors' and equity committees, distressed debt investors, fiduciaries, and trade creditors. Katten's clients draw upon the team's experience in a wide range of industries, including real estate, oil and gas, retail, manufacturing, agriculture, gaming and hospitality, aviation, life sciences, food and beverage, chemical, and mortgage lending.
