Congratulations to the firm’s Tim Burns and Jesse Bair for being named to the list of the nation’s 500 top bankruptcy and restructuring attorneys by the Lawdragon legal guide. Tim and Jesse have been retained as special insurance counsel by the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in some of the largest Diocesan sexual abuse bankruptcy cases in the country. The firm is also engaged in a number of other high-profile, insurance-driven matters involving entities in bankruptcy, including opioid and other manufacturers.
The publication developed the list “through our time-honed process combining journalistic research of those lawyers at the forefront of our distressed days with robust submissions from peers, competitors and firms. We vet the candidates with their colleagues and check, as well, that they are respected, if not beloved, by clients and other counsel. Among their signature traits is the ability to be calm, deliberate and creative while it feels worlds crash around them. They find the through line to the future. A good lesson in uncertain times.” The complete Lawdragon 500 list can be found here.
