International firms win roles on GM restructuring

May 30, 2009 The collapse of automotive giant General Motors has handed roles to at least 15 law firms so far in one of the largest restructurings to date.

Clifford Chance (CC) has taken a high-profile role advising GM Europe on the restructuring of its business, which includes the proposed sale of its flagship Opel brand. CC’s team was led by Frankfurt-based corporate restructuring partner Kolja von Bismarck.

GM Europe has also instructed Weil Gotshal & Manges with London head and corporate partner Mike Francies leading along with Frankfurt-based tax partner Juergen Boerst.
