PHILADELPHIA – Montgomery McCracken has been selected as a finalist for the “Energy Deal of the Year ($250MM – $1B)” award, “Restructuring Deal of the Year” award and “North America Deal of the Year” award for the 9th Annual International M&A Advisor Awards. The Firm was recognized for its involvement in the Chapter 11 cases of O.W. Bunker Holding North America Inc., O.W. Bunker North America Inc. and O.W. Bunker USA Inc. These cases were precipitated by the sudden collapse of OWB Denmark, which had been the world’s largest marine fuel supplier, causing a flood of litigation throughout the global maritime industry and giving rise to unprecedented bankruptcy and maritime issues.

The Montgomery McCracken team included bankruptcy and maritime attorneys. Natalie D. RamseyRichard G. PlaceyDavis Lee Wright and Mark A. Fink are members of the firm’s Creditors’ Rights and Bankruptcy practice group. Vincent M. DeOrchisRobert E. O’Connor and Kaspar Kielland are members of the firm’s Maritime and Transportation practice group.

“For the third year in a row, the increase of cross border M&A eclipsed the growth of domestic M&A during 2016.” said David Fergusson, President and Co-CEO of The M&A Advisor. “The 9th Annual International M&A Awards celebrate the creativity, perseverance and ingenuity of our industry’s leading corporate finance professionals whose contribution to the global M&A market benefits businesses and consumers across the world.”

The final winners will be announced at the 9th Annual International M&A Awards Gala on Monday, June 12, 2017, at the New York Athletic Club.
