What factor has most led to your success in the restructuring industry… Mentorship. The investment banking business is an apprenticeship business and I have had some outstanding mentors among my former colleagues, as well as among the senior lawyers and turnaround professionals with which I’ve been in the deal trenches.

What do you most enjoy about your career… I get a lot of satisfaction from the fact that my clients have most often never been through a restructuring before and really rely on my advice and guidance.
