Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP

New York, NY, USA


A partner in the Bankruptcy & Corporate Reorganization Department, Alice advises creditor and debtor clients in corporate reorganizations and bankruptcies, with a focus on postpetition financings, exit financings and related transactions. Her recent company-side matters include advising Expro Holdings, Performance Sports Group and Foresight Energy LP, and recent creditor-side experience includes advising stakeholders in Exide Technologies and an informal committee of certain holders of secured and unsecured notes of Chassix Inc. and Chassix Holdings, Inc.

Chambers USA recognizes Alice for her “rare combination of bankruptcy and financing experience” in dealing with distressed companies in major chapter 11 cases and The Legal 500 writes that Alice’s “ease in grasping complex structures make her the perfect lawyer to attack difficult restructuring issues.” She is also recognized by The Best Lawyers in America for her work in Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency and Reorganization Law. Alice was selected by Law360 to its list of Rising Stars for 2011, recognizing her as a legal talent under the age of 40, notably in connection with the successful bankruptcies of AbitibiBowater and CIT Group Inc.

Alice’s matters are routinely recognized by industry publications and associations. The M&A Advisor recently selected the restructuring of BPS US Holdings and its debtor affiliates (the Performance Sports Group restructuring) as its “Restructuring of the Year ($500M-$1B)” in its 10th Annual International M&A Awards. The Turnaround Management Association has honored Alice in two awards; 2018 “Transaction of the Year: Large Company” for her work on Performance Sports Group’s chapter 11 case, as well as 2016 “Turnaround of the Year: Mega Company” for her work on behalf of Chassix Holdings Inc. debtholders. The Financial Times has recognized Alice’s work on a number of restructurings in its annual report on “U.S. Innovative Lawyers,” including “Highly Commending” her work on behalf of the Ad Hoc Committee of Dynegy Bondholders (2012) and CIT Group bondholders (2010), and “Commending” her work on the successful restructuring of AbitibiBowater (2011).

Alice received her J.D. from New York University School of Law and graduated summa cum laude from Bowdoin College.
