The law firm of Foley & Lardner LLP announced recently that Erika L. Morabito rejoined the firm’s Bankruptcy & Business Reorganizations Practice as a partner in its Washington, D.C. office.
Morabito, who rejoins Foley from Patton Boggs, practices in the areas of bankruptcy, creditors’ rights, debtor reorganizations and out-of-court restructurings. Other areas she provides representation in include Chapter 11 debtors and creditors’ committees, creditors’ rights litigation, and the purchase and sale of assets under the Bankruptcy Code.
Mark L. Prager, chair of the firm’s Bankruptcy & Business Reorganizations Practice was quoted as saying in a press release at the firm’s website: “Erika brings a well-regarded and sophisticated national practice to our national bankruptcy capabilities. We know Erika well, and beyond her notable Chapter 11 representations and restructuring efforts she is an accomplished litigator, which is increasingly important to our clients in this space.”
Earlier this month, Christopher Celentino, Mikel R. Bistrow and Kathryn M.S. Catherwood joined Foley’s San Diego office as partners in the firm’s Bankruptcy & Business Reorganizations Practice – one that is widely regarded as the most prestigious in the nation. All specialize in bankruptcy and finance attorneys, and all three joined from Duane Morris LLP.
Jay O. Rothman, chairman and CEO of Foley was quoted as saying in a press release at the firm’s website: “Adding such an exceptional team of bankruptcy and finance attorneys to our San Diego office further advances our reputation and capabilities in California and across the country. Their wide-ranging, national experience in business reorganization, creditor’s rights and transactional finance will be a tremendous asset to our clients involved in these areas.”
Celentino practices in the areas of bankruptcy, insolvency, business reorganization and creditor’s rights. As well, he specializes in the crossover of family law and bankruptcy.
Bistrow has significant experience in a wide variety of areas, including bankruptcy, insolvency, commercial finance and lending, and the representation of borrowers and lenders in real and personal property loans and secured transactions.
Catherwood focuses her practice in the areas of creditors, debtors and trustees involved in workouts, commercial litigation, bankruptcy and lender liability/secured creditor matters.
Additionally, Bistrow and Celentino will serve as the Western Regional co-chairs of Foley’s Bankruptcy & Business Reorganizations Practice.
Van A. Tengberg, managing partner of Foley’s San Diego and Del Mar offices was quoted as saying in a press release at the firm’s website: “The addition of these prominent attorneys helps solidify Foley’s standing as a firm that is uniquely positioned to represent clients in high-profile bankruptcy, insolvency and finance matters.”
