BOSTON – Sept. 18, 2023 – Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP expands its global Restructuring & Bankruptcy Practice with the addition of leading creditors lawyer Julia Frost-Davies as a shareholder in the firm’s Boston office. She joins from Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP where she was a partner.
With over 25 years of experience, Frost-Davies has a nationally recognized, market-leading practice representing creditors in complex Chapter 11 cases. She counsels clients in distressed debt situations and those facing bankruptcy litigation and appeals and is well respected in bankruptcy courts across the country.
“The addition of Julia further bolsters our global restructuring team,” said Shari L. Heyen, co-chair of the firm’s global Restructuring & Bankruptcy Practice and managing shareholder of the Houston office. “Julia’s strong reputation and depth of experience, coupled with her longstanding relationship with several of our lawyers, allow us to assist clients across a broader range of industries, particularly in the areas of retail lending, private placement, and energy.”
Frost-Davies represents investors and lenders throughout the capital structure on virtually all aspects of restructuring and related litigation, including debtor-in-possession financing, distressed M&A transactions, claim and plan negotiation and litigation, and out-of-court workouts. She works with companies in a variety of sectors and industries including energy, retail, municipal bonds, and financial services.
“We are delighted to welcome Julia to the firm,” said Diane N. Ibrahim, regional operating shareholder of the firm’s Boston office. “Adding Julia to our growing Restructuring & Bankruptcy Practice is a strategic move. She is a top-tier lawyer in areas where our clients need services, and there is no one better to join our team than someone who has previously worked alongside Greenberg Traurig lawyers for common clients.”
Frost-Davies said, “Greenberg Traurig offers a strong global platform and has a demonstrated commitment to investing in its restructuring practice to best meet the needs of its clients. I'm excited to practice with New York Restructuring & Bankruptcy Chair Oscar Pinkas, whom I've known for years, and the rest of the firm’s restructuring team.”
