"Chemical pigment manufacturer Tronox Inc. has concluded a 25-month bankruptcy stay backed by a $735 million exit financing.

Henes, Richard Cieri and Nicole Greenblatt of Kirkland & Ellis in New York and Patrick Nash Jr. in Chicago are lead counsel to the debtor. Jeanne Cohn-Connor of the firm's Washington office is Tronox's environmental counsel concerning the EPA and Navajo Nation settlement."
