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.”

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:

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: petition@petition11.com.

We’d like to thank some firms that became Founding Member Groups of PETITION: Davis Polk & Wardwell LLPAlixPartners LLCSierraConstellation PartnersSidley Austin LLPGavin/SolmoneseGLC Advisors and others.
