As Global practice area leader of the firm's Business Restructuring and Insolvency group, Christopher Donoho has made a career out of navigating difficult situations and finding creative solutions that create value.
For Chris, that can mean negotiating an out-of-court solution to a complex financial problem, or it can mean guiding a client through a U.S. Chapter 11 bankruptcy or foreign insolvency proceeding. Regardless of the forum, Chris always enjoys the challenge of taking complex situations, breaking them down, and then leading a process that results in accretive value for his clients.
Whether leading a process or lending a hand on a project, Chris is an important member of both the New York office and the firm's global Business Restructuring and Insolvency team, all of whom, individually and as a team, are experienced and recognized in their field, working on many of the most important bankruptcy situations around the globe. In September 2015, Chris was named the administrative partner for the New York office.
Chris spends much of his time protecting the rights of creditors in restructurings, frequently on behalf of investment funds or banks. He also has considerable experience in representing companies facing distress, leading them through work-outs or Chapter 11 restructurings in jurisdictions across the United States. He is frequently called into situations that involve multi-national companies and complicated cross-border disputes, drawing on the resources of his colleagues and Hogan Lovells resources around the world.
Several of the deals where Chris has played a leading role are award winning, including his representation of the Kodak Pension Plan in the Eastman Kodak Company Chapter 11, which was the winner of, among other things, the 2014 Turnaround Management Association's Mega Turnaround of the Year Award, where he received an individual award for his contributions.
