“This very difficult decision to spin off the bankruptcy practice follows an in-depth analysis of the current and future needs of the firm’s clients, and is aligned with the firm’s new strategic plan that we launched at our recent annual partner retreat,” the firm’s managing partner Peter Shields said in a written statement. “We all value the bankruptcy team, and we hope to work collaboratively with them in the future.”

There are eight attorneys in the firm’s bankruptcy group, with five of them partners, one of counsel and two associates. The practice is chaired by Jason Gold.

“As an independent practice dedicated to offering bankruptcy and restructuring services, we will have enhanced flexibility and the opportunity to provide even greater value to our bankruptcy clients,” Gold said in a statement. “We have enjoyed working with our colleagues at Wiley Rein, as partners and friends, and we look forward to working with them on client matters in the future.”
