Firm Launches Wilmington Office With Addition of Veteran Bankruptcy Attorney

WILMINGTON, Del. (June 16, 2016) – Shaw Fishman Glantz & Towbin LLC today announced that it will open a new office in Delaware, bringing the sophistication, efficiency and value of the nation’s premier bankruptcy boutique to a critically important state. The new office of the Chicago-headquartered firm will be led by highly respected bankruptcy attorney, Thomas M. Horan, who most recently practiced in the Wilmington office of AmLaw 200 firm Womble Carlyle.

“The opening of a Wilmington office is a natural progression for Shaw Fishman, as we see significant value in our offerings and approach that will successfully translate to the nation’s busiest bankruptcy venue,” said Robert Fishman, co-chair of the firm’s Bankruptcy, Reorganization, and Creditors’ Rights practice. “We’ve had our eyes on the Delaware market for a long time, and believe that having our proven experience, sophistication and value on the ground in Delaware will be an asset to the marketplace.”

Mr. Horan has a well-established practice representing debtors, official committees of unsecured creditors, and other clients in complex Chapter 11 proceedings. His wide-ranging bankruptcy experience also includes representing parties in preference, fraudulent transfer, and turnover litigation. Mr. Horan sits on the Board of Directors of the American Bankruptcy Institute.

“This is a once-in-a-career opportunity to be part of such an important expansion for a firm so well-known in the business bankruptcy and restructuring industry,” said Mr. Horan. “Shaw Fishman’s reputation in the bankruptcy space is unmatched, and I’m thrilled at the opportunity to collaborate with some of the industry’s brightest minds to service the needs of businesses in Delaware bankruptcy cases.”

Boasting two past presidents of the American Bankruptcy Institute and three Fellows of the American College of Bankruptcy, Shaw Fishman’s bankruptcy lawyers have the professional leadership background and practical courtroom skills usually found at only the largest law firms. Its sophisticated bankruptcy practice utilizes a combination of highly skilled attorneys and boutique firm efficiencies to provide clients with outstanding service at a tremendous value. The firm has handled Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 15 bankruptcy and reorganization cases, out-of-court restructurings, receiverships, and assignments for the benefit of creditors, involving billions of dollars in assets, and a wide variety of complex bankruptcy litigation matters.
