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.” Buzzfeed discussed us here. And Turnarounds & Workouts’ listed us among the“Top Internet Bankruptcy Resources” — two years running.

Our thousands of Members/readers — which include the likes of Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, AlixPartners LLC, SierraConstellation Partners, Sidley Austin LLP, Gavin/Solmonese, GLC Advisors and others, 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 did these firms sign-up their people as Members? Because PETITION makes its Members smarter about disruptive trends and distressed debt. Our readers use our unique news and insights to source investment ideas, identify and pitch new deals, and develop business. For junior folks, PETITION is an educational tool that is -- in contrast to other dry and technical resources -- actually interesting and fun for them to read. 

We send two newsletters a week: a robust a$$-kicking missive on Sundays and a shorter one on Wednesdays. To receive our shorter Wednesday newsletter, 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” and you’ll occasionally receive free missives from us.  

To receive regular content — including 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. Email us for details: We also have special rates for students with ‘.edu’ email addresses.

Really enjoying @petition - great product! It’s like Stratechery meets the skimm for people who care more about covenants than the cloud and Kardashians. Their writing is the kind of IP I'd move to an unrestricted sub in a hot minute!

If you are a restructuring professional who isn't following @petition and getting their newsletter yet, you should fix that. Stat.
