Greenberg Traurig Continues Strategic Expansion of Restructuring & Bankruptcy Capabilities, Adds Kevin J. Walsh in Boston

BOSTON – Oct. 14, 2020 – Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP has added Kevin J. Walsh to its Boston office as a shareholder in the firm’s Restructuring & Bankruptcy Practice.

Walsh has more than 25 years of experience advising debtors and creditors on bankruptcy and commercial law matters. These include restructurings, workouts, and commercial financing transactions, as well as the negotiation and documentation of commercial loans and credits.

“Kevin is an accomplished and respected restructuring attorney. He is another resource on a creative and savvy team that our clients can turn to for sophisticated advice. Our Restructuring Practice has seen significant growth this year with a number of notable hires, including Kevin,” said Shari L. Heyen and David B. Kurzweil, co-chairs of the firm’s Restructuring & Bankruptcy Practice, in a joint statement. Since Jan. 1, 2020, Greenberg Traurig’s Restructuring & Bankruptcy Practice has added 11 attorneys.

“Greenberg Traurig is a top firm in restructuring and bankruptcy law, and I am thrilled to join such an elite team of professionals,” Walsh said. “The breadth and depth of the team, the collaborative nature across practices, and the firm’s global presence are great assets to my practice and my clients.”

David J. Dykeman and Terence P. McCourt, co-managing shareholders of the firm’s Boston office, said in a statement, “We are delighted to have Kevin join the Boston office. During this time of financial disruption, Kevin’s extensive experience representing clients in bankruptcy matters and commercial financing transactions strengthens our restructuring team and offerings, and complements well a variety of other key practices here at Greenberg Traurig.”

Walsh represents trustees, financial institutions, bondholders, insurers, and other parties in bankruptcy cases in courts around the country. He also handles out-of-court workouts and receivership matters and advises clients on bankruptcy and other distressed sales (both buyer and seller perspectives). In addition, lenders and borrowers turn to Walsh for guidance on working capital and asset-based financings, as well as acquisition loans, syndicated credit facilities, and debtor-in-possession financings, and he regularly advises corporate boards on fiduciary duty issues around insolvency. His experience includes representing iconic businesses as they reorganize in bankruptcy, and indenture trustees for bondholders with investments in varied industries ranging from senior living facilities, Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CRCs) and hospitals, to landfills and other project finance transactions in bankruptcy courts and receiverships across the country. Walsh joins Greenberg Traurig from Mintz Levin, where he was a partner.

Walsh received his J.D., magna cum laude, from New York Law School, where he was an articles editor of the New York Law School Law Review and a national finalist in the Judge Duberstein Bankruptcy Moot Court Competition.
