AlixPartners managing directors Deborah Rieger-Paganis and Robert Albergotti recently joined Debtwire legal analyst Richard Goldman to discuss Alix’s 2017 restructuring expert survey.  Now in its 11th year, the survey—which solicited responses from hundreds of practitioners in the global restructuring space—forecasts an increase in both US and non-US restructuring activity in 2017.  With much of that activity expected to occur in retail, oil and gas, healthcare and maritime shipping, Richard sat down with Deborah and Robert to unpack the survey and take a focused look on the market forces that will contribute the continuing restructuring cycle in 2017.
