Commercial Chapter 11 bankruptcy filings are rebounding after below-average years in 2021 and 2022, with July seeing 71% more filings than the same month last year, according to a Wednesday report from Epiq Global.

Meanwhile, a separate bankruptcy report this week by BankruptcyData and New Generation Research shows Kirkland & Ellis leading large debtor-side representations this year by a significant margin, while Jackson Walker, Kirkland’s preferred local counsel in the Southern District of Texas, picked up more local debtor’s representations than any other firm.
