Bankruptcy and Financial Restructuring
“A ‘completely different animal’ compared to the other top-tier firms in Chambers’ listings, Murphy & King has forged a reputation as the ‘leading Boston boutique’ in this area. Sources felt the team’s profile was due to a uniquely ‘streetwise, pragmatic approach,’ which drew praise as much from the clients who benefited as the peers who worked alongside it. … Impressing clients with a ‘very-cost conscious’ culture, it ‘is very attentive and always hit the bull’s eye.’ Sources also valued its commitment to basic client service, with a ‘very responsive, very accessible, personable team.’” Chambers and Partners U.S.A. 2007
