Suzzanne Uhland joined Latham & Watkins’ New York office as a partner in the restructuring and special situations practice within the finance department. Uhland joined Latham from O’Melveny & Myers.

Uhland has a track record advising parties in Chapter 11 reorganizations and out of court restructurings, as well as buyers and sellers in Bankruptcy Code Section 363(b) sales and other distress transactions.

“Suzzanne is a well-regarded and recognized leader in restructuring and bankruptcy, and we are delighted to welcome her to the firm,” Michèle Penzer, office managing partner of Latham & Watkins in New York, said. “Our clients will be well-served by her deep experience navigating volatile market conditions and complex business challenges.”

Uhland has represented an array of clients as members of creditor groups in addition to representing companies across industries, including real estate, energy and technology. She also advises on municipal and international financings and restructurings and has experience advising clients in structuring transactions to avoid bankruptcy-related risks.

“We are thrilled to add such an accomplished practitioner to our strong team of restructuring professionals around the globe,” George Davis, global chair of Latham’s restructuring and special situations practice, said. “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Suzzanne in the past and know her to be a skilled adviser who takes a business-minded approach to achieve value-maximizing outcomes for clients.”

Uhland is the latest addition to Latham’s global restructuring and special situations practice. In the last two years the firm has added Davis and New York partner Andrew Parlen, Los Angeles partner Jeffrey Bjork, London partners Yen Sum and Jennifer Brennan, New York counsel Anu Yerramalli, Washington, D.C. counsel Andrew Sorkin, and Los Angeles counsel Christina Craige.
