Profile Experience

Alistair Fatheazam is an associate in the New York office of Latham & Watkins and a member of the Finance Department and Restructuring & Special Situations Practice.

Mr. Fatheazam advises public and private companies, as well as secured and unsecured lenders, in both in-court and out-of-court restructurings. He represents clients in a variety of industries.

Prior to joining Latham, Mr. Fatheazam worked in the New York office of another leading international law firm.

Mr. Fatheazam’s experience includes advising:

  • Superior Energy Services, Inc. and its affiliates in their chapter 11 cases in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas and restructuring more than US$1.3 billion of their funded debt
  • J.C. Penney Company, Inc., an iconic American retail chain, and 17 affiliates in their pre-arranged chapter 11 cases. With approximately US$4.9 billion in debt, JCPenney entered bankruptcy with a Restructuring Support Agreement that carries broad first-lien stakeholder support and is expected to substantially de-lever the company’s balance sheet.*
  • Tapstone Energy, LLC, an independent oil and natural gas company, and certain affiliates in their out-of-court restructuring. The restructuring transaction reduced Tapstone’s funded debt by approximately US$440 million and provided the company with liquidity, including a US$50 million new money investment, to optimize operations and expand its production base through mergers and acquisitions.*
  • Murray Energy Holdings Co., the largest privately-owned coal company in the US, and certain subsidiaries in their chapter 11 cases in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Ohio. Murray entered chapter 11 with approximately US$2.7 billion in prepetition funded debt and more than US$8 billion in actual or potential pension and employee benefit obligations.*
  • Sheridan Holding Company II, LLC and certain affiliates in their prepackaged chapter 11 restructuring in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas. Sheridan II’s prepackaged restructuring addressed over US$1.1 billion of funded debt obligations through an equitization which had near universal creditor support and left general unsecured creditors unimpaired.*
  • Hollander Sleep Products, LLC, a leading bedding products manufacturer and wholesaler, and certain affiliates in connection with their prearranged Chapter 11 restructuring in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.*
  • Aegean Marine Petroleum Network Inc., a leading international marine fuel logistics company with approximately US$900 million of funded indebtedness, and certain subsidiaries in their chapter 11 cases filed in the US Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. In connection with its restructuring, Aegean has reached agreements with certain key stakeholders to deleverage its balance sheet by more than US$700 million and continue as a going concern.*
