Christopher Ward represents distressed companies with a business-minded, client-driven approach. He has represented clients in corporate bankruptcy, financial restructuring, bankruptcy litigation, and distressed asset sales for the last two decades. He has extensive experience in Delaware in addition to working nationally. Chris also serves on the Board of Directors of the American Bankruptcy Institute, which provides him with full-insight into the restructuring community.
As Co-Chair of the Bankruptcy and Financial Restructuring practice and Managing Shareholder of the Delaware office, Chris routinely tackles financial restructurings, litigation, and asset sales with a creative and aggressive approach. He has significant experience in representing Chapter 11 debtors and Official Committees of Unsecured Creditors, which allows him to provide his clients with compressive insight into both sides of the restructuring industry. As a result, Chris advises his clients in situations where a negotiated resolution may be the appropriate course of action or, when an agreement cannot be reached, he aims to zealously push his client’s interests forward in litigation.
Chris leads Polsinelli’s national bankruptcy practice from Delaware, but practices all across the country. Whether it be a bankruptcy, or another restructuring alternative, Chris has the depth and breadth in his practice to represent clients in distressed deals no matter where they arise.
