O'Melveny & Myers LLP
Nancy A. Mitchell advises debtors, acquirers, and creditors on complex restructurings, workouts, and Chapter 11 proceedings, drawing on more than 30 years of experience as a lawyer and an investment banker.
Nancy has counseled clients on some of the largest and most complex bankruptcies and restructurings, including ad hoc bondholders in General Motors and AbitibiBowater, and Satélites Mexicanos in its chapter 11 reorganization, as well as her ongoing representation of Puerto Rico government agencies in the largest in-court restructuring in US history.
In recommending Nancy as a leading restructuring and bankruptcy attorney, Chambers USA quotes clients who describe her as “knowledgeable, very practical and business oriented,” adding that “she is very responsive, very hands-on and has excellent communication skills with all parties."
Prior to joining O’Melveny, Nancy co-chaired the restructuring practice of another major law firm. She also previously served as an executive director for CIBC World Markets Corp. where she was a member of the restructuring/leveraged finance team that handled negotiation and development of financial models for complex restructuring transactions. Her background as an investment banker helps her fashion practical, business solutions unique to each client’s legal and regulatory needs.
