March 23, 2016

In bond litigation endgame, Argentina’s leverage-shifting play

February 16, 2016

(Reuters) - Cravath Swaine & Moore made quite a splashy debut last week as new counsel to Argentina in its 15-year fight with hedge funds holding billions of dollars in defaulted Argentine debt. At the same time that Cravath lawyers entered appearances on behalf of the recently elected Argentine government, the firm obtained an order from U.S. District Judge Thomas Griesa directing NML Capital, Aurelius Capital and other hedge funds that have refused to settle with the new government to show why he shouldn't lift the 2012 "equal footing" injunction that forced Argentina to negotiate with the holdouts.

Argentina: what to watch this week

December 14, 2015

Argentina's President Mauricio Macri ties his necktie at his home before going to his swearing-in ceremoy in Buenos Aires, December 10, 2015. Macri took office as Argentina's first non-Peronist president in more than a decade on Thursday, promising to end policies of leftist populism and revive the South American country's ailing economy. Macri began his 4-year term in a ceremony snubbed by his predecessor, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, following a rancorous argument over where the handover of power should take place.
