GRR is conducting a new 40 under 40 survey to find the next generation of rising stars within the global cross-border restructuring community, building on our first released back in 2016.

The 40 under 40 is open to all cross-border restructuring specialists, whether they are on the legal side, non-legal advisory side, academics, judges, insolvency practitioners, lenders or investors.

We are looking for candidates from a variety of jurisdictions, and diverse cultural and professional backgrounds.

To be eligible, a nominee must have experience within the cross-border restructuring sphere and be under the age of 40 on 1 April 2022.

How to nominate someone

If you are reading this, you are welcome to nominate up-and-coming restructuring specialists who you think deserve a place on the list by filling out the short survey below.

You cannot nominate yourself and you can only nominate individuals outside of your organisation. Nominations for yourself, or for individuals within the same organisation as you, will be automatically disqualified.

You can, however, nominate as many candidates as you like by filling in the survey several times.

Your nomination(s) should briefly explain why the nominee is a cut above the rest, and give details of their date of birth (where known), position and contact information. Mandatory questions have a * next to them.

The deadline for submitting nominations is Monday 31 January 2022.

How will we select the final list?

Once we have gathered a long list of potential 40 under 40 nominees, the individuals on the long list will be sent additional questions so that we can obtain more information on their experience and credentials.

The GRR 40 under 40 2022 will then be selected based on nominations received, additional information provided to us, and our own specialist knowledge and research.

Those who are selected for the 40 under 40 will have their personal profile and a short interview featured in the survey, which will be released in March.

We really look forward to hearing from you,

The GRR Team
