WILMINGTON, Del.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Whiteford Taylor & Preston is pleased to announce that Marc Abrams has
joined the firm. Widely recognized as one of the preeminent bankruptcy
practitioners in the United States, Mr. Abrams is also a leader in the
burgeoning area of cross-border restructurings.
“Marc is a true statesman of the bankruptcy bar,” said Managing Partner
Martin Fletcher. “His decision to join us is a tremendous endorsement of
our bankruptcy platform, and a signal moment for the firm.”
Mr. Abrams is experienced in complex chapter 11 cases and non-judicial
restructurings, principally on behalf of debtors. He also has extensive
experience representing creditors’ committees and groups, opportunistic
investors and lenders, as well as substantial experience with
restructurings involving foreign insolvency regimes and related cases
under the Bankruptcy Code, including chapter 15 cases.
Paul Nussbaum, Chair of the firm’s Bankruptcy Group, said, “Marc and I
were young lawyers together in New York in the early days of the modern
bankruptcy practice. Since then, businesses of every size and
description have relied on bankruptcy restructurings, and Whiteford has
evolved into a leading bankruptcy practice. Having Marc in our New York
and Delaware offices significantly enhances and deepens our profile,
nationally and internationally.”
Consistently recognized by Chambers Global and Chambers USA as a leading
practitioner in Bankruptcy/Restructuring, Mr. Abrams has been named to
the Global M&A Network’s 2017 “A-List” as one of the top 100
restructuring & turnaround professionals. The American Lawyer

Directors and a Fellow with the American College of Bankruptcy.
“This is an opportunity for me to work with an exceptional bankruptcy
team,” said Mr. Abrams, “and, in a very real sense, return to my roots.
My legal career began in Delaware, and Wilmington, in the years since,
has become an important center of bankruptcy activity.”
