[The Inside Track is a new Debtwire podcast series featuring in depth and intimate conversations with today’s restructuring market leaders. It is a platform upon which guests will share the lessons they’ve learned throughout their careers guiding distressed companies and municipalities, as well as their constituencies, through the most challenging, complex, comprehensive and sometimes contentious reorganizations around the world. We will also address issues impacting the current distressed and restructuring landscapes.]
Paul Basta is one of today’s preeminent restructuring attorneys with a list of representative matters that reads like a Chapter 11 hall of fame. But those notable representations may never have occurred if not for what Paul describes as the cornerstone of his success — teams. He joined one at Weil, he helped build one at Kirkland, and now he leads one at Paul Weiss. It’s these teams to which Paul credits much of his growth as a bankruptcy attorney, and because of that, he is paying it forward. In fact, perhaps only second to the influence that the late Harvey Miller had on the bankruptcy bar, Paul is responsible for cultivating not just a growing generation of prominent restructuring lawyers, but restructuring leaders. Because of that, Paul Basta is on The Inside Track.
