Several media outlets reported that O’Melveny & Myers LLP has added John J. Rapisardi and George A. Davis, former co-chairs of Cadwalader’s Global Financial Restructuring Department, and former Cadwalader partner Peter M. Friedman as partners in the Firm’s Restructuring Practice. Widely recognized among the country’s most respected restructuring lawyers, Rapisardi, Davis, and Friedman have played key roles in some of the largest restructuring projects and most significant bankruptcies ever filed, according to articles in the Wall Street Journal, American Lawyer, Reuters, New York Law Journal, and Law360, among others. In interviews, Rapisardi and Davis, who will become Global Co-Practice Group Leaders of O’Melveny’s Restructuring Group, credited the Firm’s “cohesion and camaraderie” and its “qualitative” and “holistic” approach, as well as the recent addition of Capital Markets Co-Head Michael Schiavone and partners Richard Shutran, Junaid H. Chida, Arthur V. Hazlitt, Mark Caterini, and Dev R. Sen as what drew them to O’Melveny.
