Kobre & Kim Appoints Daniel Saval


Kobre & Kim, the premier law firm for global disputes and investigations, welcomes Daniel Saval to its cross-border insolvency litigation practice in New York. Mr. Saval represents clients in multijurisdictional insolvency and corporate restructuring disputes, and has particular experience in contentious proceedings involving funds in liquidation triggered by fraud or wrongdoing. He joins a global insolvency team at Kobre & Kim that spans the U.S., the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.

"Dan is a dynamic and talented lawyer who is exceptionally positioned to meet our clients' unique, multijurisdictional needs," said Farrington Yates, an insolvency disputes lawyer in the firm's New Yorkoffice. "His breadth of experience, including relating to asset recovery, will support and surely enhance the firm's insolvency litigation practice."

Mr. Saval is the fifth insolvency lawyer to join Kobre & Kim in the past year, following Mr. Yates in February, London-based Mark Griffiths in April, and New York-based Adam Lavine and George Utlikalso in April.

The firm's Insolvency & Debtor-Creditor Disputes group has handled some of the largest insolvency disputes in recent times, involving SunEdison, Energy Future Holdings, Baha Mar, Caesars Entertainment Group and Petters, among others. Serving as special litigation counsel and international asset recovery counsel in insolvencies originating from jurisdictions including New York, London, Hong Kong, Korea, Latin America, and offshore jurisdictions (the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands Turks and Caicos Islands, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Bermuda, among others), the team focuses on clawback actions, priority contests, intercreditor disputes, and investigation and recovery of insolvent entities' assets, often in simultaneous legal proceedings in multiple countries.

Before joining Kobre & Kim, Mr. Saval most recently practiced in the Bankruptcy & Corporate Restructuring and International Disputes groups at Brown Rudnick LLP. He is also a Fellow of INSOL International.
