What led you to a career in the deal-making industry?
I appreciate the challenge that deal-making presents in the restructuring space in particular. Whether it’s bringing together lenders and companies to preserve value, negotiating financings or sales, or litigating when necessary, the opportunity to help clients achieve their goals is both demanding and satisfying.
Tell us about your experience and what was different during the Covid-19?
Throughout 2020, I represented multiple entities as they navigated the COVID-induced downturn. This included CDO trustees assessing potential noteholder recoveries in complex bankruptcies, servicers for securitizations backed by receivables associated with well-known fashion and restaurant brands, and vendors to airlines and other service industries facing unprecedented times.
Recent most memorable deal I worked on....
EP Energy restructuring. EP’s plan was all but final...in March 2020. Given COVID-19, that heavily negotiated plan had to be scuttled and completely re-worked. Challenging times. And a challenging deal.
