Gregory Petrick, Co-Chair of Cadwalader's Financial Restructuring Group and Managing Partner of the London office, has represented debtors, official unsecured creditors' committees, secured lenders, state regulators, and trustees in complex business reorganizations. His practice encompasses counseling secured and unsecured lenders, creditor committees, public bondholders, debtors, shareholders, and investors involved in many of the largest and most complex U.S. and international reorganizations and restructurings, financial transactions, mergers and acquisitions, and litigation. In recognition of Greg's many accomplishments in the restructuring space, The Best Lawyers in America selected Greg as a leading lawyer in the areas of Bankruptcy and Creditor-Debtor Rights, Insolvency and Reorganization, and Bankruptcy Litigation.

He has also led cross-border restructurings across Europe, Indonesia and Australia.

He is a graduate of Boston University, summa cum laude, and Fordham Law School.
