BECOME A PETITION MEMBER
PETITION provides analysis, commentary and curated links about restructuring and bankruptcy. We discuss disruption, from the vantage point of the disrupted. Fortune highlighted us in “The Ultimate Guide to the Best Business Newsletters.” Turnarounds & Workouts’ listed us among the 15 “Top Internet Bankruptcy Resources.” In truth, there are 16 listed: we are SO GOOD that we were listed twice:
Boom💥‼️💥‼️ Other recipients include WestLaw, LexisNexis, Debtwire & Bloomberg. Great company.
Our Members are a highly targeted group of investors, lawyers, investment bankers, consultants, C-suiters, board-of-director-types, and others trying to keep up with rapid change and the disruption that comes with it.
Why do professionals from these and many other shops become Members? They use our insights to, among other things, be more conversant in the market, source business, impress potential mates in bars (you know it’s true), and develop advisory strategies. So, basically, our Members are taking mental PEDs and you're not. Pro tip: you might want to level the playing field by joining.
Some recent newsletters include:
Toys R Us is a Dumpster Fire - We were the first to say the toy retailer could liquidate rather than reorganize as a going concern;

Tops, Toys, Amazon & Owning the Robots - our discussion of the plight of the working man given the rise of Amazon and the fall of Toys R Us.
We send two newsletters a week: a robust a$$-kicking “Member Email” on Sundays and a shorter “Freemail” on Wednesdays. To receive our shorter Wednesday “Freemail", you don't need to do anything other than subscribe. Just sit there, bill hours, and inwardly pose existential questions. You'll be in our group of free riders...we mean, uh, "freemailers."
To receive our more robust a$$-kicking Members’-only Sunday briefing, you must become a Member. Membership ($299/person-per-year) gets you:
the Wednesday and Sunday briefings,
access to our Archives; and
first look at any new initiatives we can get off the ground (e.g., new content distribution channels, etc.).
Our subscriptions are designed for individuals but we'll accommodate group subscriptions (of 10+ people). Email us for details: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’d like to thank some firms that became Founding Member Groups of PETITION: Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, AlixPartners LLC, SierraConstellation Partners, Sidley Austin LLP, Gavin/Solmonese, GLC Advisors and others.
