Greenberg Traurig Adds Veteran Bankruptcy Attorney J. Gregory Milmoe

BOSTON – April 5, 2018 – Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP has added J. Gregory Milmoe to its Boston and New York offices as a shareholder in the firm’s Restructuring & Bankruptcy Practice.

Milmoe has long been recognized as a senior statesman within the restructuring community and has helped devise and refine many innovative restructuring techniques, which have become standard operating procedure. He brings to Greenberg Traurig wide-ranging corporate experience, including in-court and out-of-court restructurings, hostile and negotiated mergers and acquisitions, leveraged buyouts, and corporate financings. Milmoe draws on this experience to help clients fashion pragmatic, sometimes novel, approaches to complex problems that frequently blend and adapt techniques from various legal disciplines. He is a Fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy and has been named a “Dealmaker of the Year” by The American Lawyer, among other honors. Milmoe retired from Skadden Arps Slate Meagher& Flom, LLP on Dec. 31, 2017, after a 47-year career during which he served, among other things, as co-chair of that firm’s Corporate Restructuring Group.

"We are delighted to welcome Greg to the firm," said Nancy A. Mitchell, co-chair of the firm’s Global Restructuring & Bankruptcy Practice and a regional operating shareholder for the firm’s New York and Boston offices. “His broad experience and reputation as one of the United States’ leading restructuring lawyers will enhance and complement our strong and growing presence in the restructuring community.”

Terence P. McCourt, managing shareholder of the firm’s Boston office, added, “With Greg’s arrival, Greenberg Traurig further expands and strengthens its service offerings in Boston. His significant transactional and restructuring experience across a wide array of industries will benefit our clients and contribute to the growth of the office.”

Milmoe commented, “I am thrilled to join Greenberg Traurig to continue my career as a practicing lawyer. Greenberg Traurig is a very comfortable fit from a cultural point of view – we share the ‘walk through walls’ approach to client needs, and I am looking forward to working with such distinguished and collaborative colleagues.”
