Patton Boggs has expanded its bankruptcy practice with the addition of three attorneys from Foley & Lardner’s bankruptcy and business reorganization practice group. Michael Richman, who chaired their former group, will lead Patton Boggs’ bankruptcy team as partner in its New York City office.
Mark Salzberg and Erika Morabito, who were both partners at Foley & Lardner, join as partners in Patton Boggs’ bankruptcy and restructuring practice in its Washington, D.C. office.
Between the three new partners, they’ve represented clients in more than 20 states and territories before state and federal courts.
Salzberg, who started with Patton Boggs April 1, says the bankruptcy practice will work as an “integrated team” across its offices in New York, Washington, D.C., Dallas, and Northern Virginia. The three new partners will supplement the practice with an “established track record” representing debtors and creditor committees, Salzberg says. “That skill set existed, but we bring substantial experience along those lines to the firm,” he says.
Patton Boggs’ bankruptcy practice advises clients, both debtors and creditors, on issues including out-of-court restructurings and the defense and prosecution of creditors’ rights litigation. It also represents franchisors, landlords, and intellectual property owners, among others.
