International law firm Proskauer announced today the arrival of corporate partner Brian S. Rosen in the Firm’s Business Solutions, Governance, Restructuring & Bankruptcy Group (“BSGRB”) in the New York office.
“We are delighted to welcome Brian to the team,” said Proskauer’s BSGRB co-head Jeff Marwil. “Brian is a real talent and leader in representing debtors, creditors and acquirors in distressed situations and will be a great asset to our thriving business.”
Mr. Rosen’s practice focuses on Chapter 11 and out-of-court debt restructurings, acquisitions of distressed companies and assets and matters relating to sovereign indebtedness. He has been recognized by Legal 500 US for his work in Corporate Restructuring and by Best Lawyers in America for his work in Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency and Reorganization. He also has been named as a top rated Bankruptcy attorney in New York since 2007 by Super Lawyers.
Proskauer’s BSGRB chair Martin J. Bienenstock said, “I was fortunate to work with Brian for 23 years. We collaborated on the reorganization of Enron. I am thrilled to have Brian join us and be my partner once again. He will be instrumental in the continued growth and excellence of Proskauer’s restructuring and governance group.”
Proskauer has had major roles in some of the largest, most contested and highest-profile chapter 11 and sovereign restructuring cases in America today. The Firm currently represents The Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico as lead outside counsel for the historic restructuring of Puerto Rico as the first US territory ever authorized to undergo a bankruptcy process, involving 63 instrumentalities, approximately $74 billion of bond debt, and $50 billion of underfunded public pension liabilities. Proskauer also represents the Statutory Unsecured Claimholders’ Committee in the Caesars Entertainment Operating Company chapter 11 case, and serves as a co-counsel to the parent debtor in the chapter 11 case of Energy Future Holdings Corp.
