The ‘very commercial’ Greenberg Traurig, LLP ‘turns work around quickly and is great with clients’. The ‘effective and well-organized’ firm has experience handling cross-border insolvencies and restructurings, as well as representing debtors in Chapter 11 filings and litigation. The ‘very experienced industry player’ Mark Bloom in Miami is ‘a consummate professional and a pleasure to work with’. He leads the team with Shari Heyen in Houston, Chicago-based Keith Shapiro and David Kurzweil, who splits his time between Atlanta and New York. The practice was further strengthened by the arrival of bankruptcy veteran J. Gregory Milmoe, who joins as a shareholder. The department is representing Nader Tavakoli in his capacity as the plan administrator for the Cobalt International Energy Bankruptcy Estates, handling post-confirmation wind-up work. In another highlight, the firm acted for the official committee of unsecured creditors in the case of integrated oil field services company C&J Energy Services, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection with approximately $1.4bn in pre-petition secured indebtedness. As committee counsel, the team worked with the other parties to develop a plan that would allow the company to emerge from bankruptcy while maximizing recoveries for unsecured creditors. Maria DiConza and Nancy Mitchell left for O'Melveny & Myers LLP, while Lenard Parkins moved to Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton.
