Partner, Latham & Watkins LLP.
David Wallace is a partner in Latham & Watkins’ London restructuring and special situations practice. He has extensive experience in advising clients on all aspects of private capital investment, from the deployment of capital through the credit cycle to highly complex, multi-jurisdictional debt and equity restructurings. He has an in-depth knowledge of the private capital investor universe. The clients he acts for include asset managers, credit funds, hedge funds and other alternative capital providers, as well as corporates, private debt issuers and private equity sponsors.
Prior to joining Latham, David spent a number of years as an investment professional in the credit team of Alcentra, one of Europe’s largest sub-investment grade asset managers, where he gained first-hand committee experience on multiple restructuring transactions with a diverse range of investors across various credit strategies. He was also heavily involved in the structuring, execution, restructuring and value creation of multiple investments across European and US special situations, strategic credit and direct lending strategies. Before that, David was an associate in the finance and restructuring practice of another international law firm, where he advised on numerous high-profile cross-border restructuring transactions involving schemes of arrangement, security enforcements, pre-packaged administrations, debt-for-equity swaps, and US Chapter 11 and equivalent processes in other jurisdictions.
