Mr Steven Reisman
Steven Reisman advises clients on a wide range of insolvency, restructuring and creditors’ rights matters. His work helps creditors to protect their interests and maximize their recoveries, helps debtors to restructure or wind down their businesses in an orderly manner, and helps investors to locate hidden opportunities. Steve regularly represents debtors, secured and unsecured creditors, as well as boards of directors and independent directors in all aspects of insolvency matters.
Steve is highly experienced in all aspects of Chapter 11 bankruptcy, as well as insolvency issues arising from in-court and out-of-court restructurings. He is particularly well-versed in the unique needs of parties to Chapter 11 cases, such as debtors, secured lenders, governmental entities, creditors’ committees, indenture trustees, liquidators, secured and unsecured creditors, shareholders, and defendants in avoidance actions.
Steve also advises investors seeking opportunities in Chapter 11 through the purchase of assets or interests in a creative manner in order to acquire the company or its assets. His clients benefit from his understanding of the needs of all stakeholders, which allows them to negotiate more effectively during the in-court or out-of-court process.
His insolvency experience does not end at the US border. Steve has been involved in proceedings with clients in markets such as Mexico, Argentina and Canada, among other jurisdictions.
Katten remains a go-to firm for the representation of independent directors in both chapter 11 cases and out-of-court restructurings. It is also well versed in the representation of debtors, equity sponsors and creditor committees, and has strong rapports with investment banks and financial advisors. New York-based Steven Reisman and Chicago’s Peter Siddiqui are co-chairs of the team. The practice has significantly enhanced its offering throughout 2021, with the arrival of Terence Banich from Fox Rothschild LLP, Michael Comerford from Paul Hastings LLP, Michaela Crocker from Jones Day, Peter Knight from Latham & Watkins LLP, John Mitchell from Akerman LLP, Julia Winters from White & Case LLP and Cindi Giglio rejoining from Gordon Brothers Group. Theresa Foudy departed the firm, while Jeff Friedman retired.
