NEW YORK, July 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Deal, TheStreet's (NASDAQ: TST) institutional business, announced the results of their quarterly rankings of the top firms and professionals involved in active bankruptcy cases for the second quarter of 2014. Starting with this quarter, data collected will capture only active restructuring work on ongoing U.S. and Canadian cases.
"While the total number of restructurings continued to trend down in the second quarter, we saw some interesting activity in the energy sector," reported Anders Melin, Senior Editorial Research Coordinator for The Deal. "The common denominator for several of the larger cases is coal. As the debate on global warming grows louder, coal-based electricity generation is increasingly falling out of favor, and experts tell us that we will likely see more restructurings in that sector over the next few years, which will make an imprint on the bankruptcy league tables."

About The Deal's Bankruptcy League Tables
The Deal's Bankruptcy League Tables are the industry's only league tables focused solely on active bankruptcy cases. The Bankruptcy League Tables by volume involve only active U.S. bankruptcy cases of debtors with liabilities of $10 million or more. The rankings are based on the aggregation of those liability values. The table reflects the number of active cases fitting that criteria and may not characterize the total number of active cases. Firms and professionals only get one credit for each active case, not each active assignment. The Bankruptcy League Tables by number involve U.S. and Canadian bankruptcy cases irrespective of debtor asset size. Professionals receive credit for multiple assignments on one case.
