Also nominated: Lazard and Moelis

Evaluating candidates for the best global restructuring house always involves two considerations: advisory firms argue that banks are too conflicted to be meaningful players and banks argue that it is their access and insight that gives them a better perspective on restructuring solutions. The strength of either argument changes with market conditions but Goldman Sachs, Euromoney’s restructuring house for 2011, has ably demonstrated the benefits of the latter proposition this year. "The thing that distinguishes Goldman is that we combine restructuring black belts with all the expertise that an investment bank can bring," argues Andrew Wilkinson, managing director and European head of restructuring at Goldman Sachs in London.
