Rachel Albanese is Chair of the U.S. Restructuring practice and a partner in the New York office. She has nearly 20 years' experience representing secured and unsecured creditors, debtors, equity holders, purchasers of distressed assets, and other parties in interest in a wide range of restructuring matters, including cases under chapter 11 of the US Bankruptcy Code, out-of-court workouts, and cross-border insolvency proceedings. 

In addition, Rachel has been involved in Puerto Rico’s current restructuring efforts since their earliest days, when she participated in dozens of meetings with U.S. Congress members and staff to develop the law that ultimately became PROMESA. Subsequently, she has been instrumental in many of the firm's PROMESA-related matters.

Rachel previously served as Co-Hiring Partner of the New York office.
