Partner Erin Edelman to Lead Armstrong Teasdale’s Restructuring, Insolvency and Bankruptcy Practice
Armstrong Teasdale announces that Financial and Real Estate Services Partner Erin Edelman has been selected to lead the firm’s Restructuring, Insolvency and Bankruptcy practice. Edelman succeeds Partner Richard Engel, who was named Armstrong Teasdale General Counsel earlier this year.
In the role, Edelman will oversee a robust team of more than 30 attorneys in offices throughout the U.S. Attorneys in the Restructuring, Insolvency and Bankruptcy practice have appeared and practiced in virtually every federal jurisdiction in the U.S. as well as the U.K., and have been chosen to represent debtors, creditors and creditors’ committees in some of the largest and most complex bankruptcies and restructurings. Our team has experience working on a wide range of domestic and cross-border matters, including advisory, transactional and contentious work, with a particular focus on the automotive, food, manufacturing, financial services, real estate, oil and gas, and retail and leisure sectors.
“Since joining the firm in 2016, Erin has been an incredible asset to firm clients through complex bankruptcies and multimillion-dollar litigation proceedings,” said Partner Robert Klahr, who leads the firm’s Financial and Real Estate Services practice group. “This leadership role provides a great opportunity for her to drive the practice forward and continue to sharpen the skill sets of our strong team.”
Edelman regularly counsels clients in bankruptcy, commercial and real estate litigation matters. She represents the interests of debtors, secured lenders and unsecured creditors seeking to maximize their return through bankruptcy or out-of-court restructuring. Edelman handles a variety of complex transactions and litigation related to corporate restructuring, including defending and prosecuting preference and related litigation, negotiating and documenting capital and debt structures, and loan workouts and asset acquisitions and divestitures. Edelman has recently handled a number of high-profile Chapter 11 and post-bankruptcy proceedings, including for a specialty footwear retailer and its related debtor affiliates, as well as a major coal company.
