Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft’s advisory work on the General Motors bankruptcy reorganization was among several transactions the firm earned top honors for at the Global M&A Network Turnaround Atlas Awards in Chicago.
In addition to the GM restructuring, which was named the Chapter 11 Reorganization of the Year ($5 billion plus), the firm also took the Special Situation M&A Deal of the Year ($500 million plus) for their work on the reorganization and sale of Chrysler to Fiat S.p.A.
Leading the Cadwalader team on those deals was John Rapisardi, the firm’s financial restructuring department co-chair, who represented the U.S. Department of Treasury and Presidential Auto Task Force.
Also winning for Cadwalader was the Landsource Communities Development LLC transaction, which was named Chapter 11 Reorganization of the Year ($1 billion plus); the pre-packaged Chapter 11 Reorganization of the Year ($1 billion plus) for CIT Group; and the Delphi Corporate Turnaround Deal of the Year ($5 billion plus).
Cadwalader, again led by Rapisardi, advised the U.S. government on CIT and Delphi.
