Jackson Walker announces the selection of 12 attorneys to Lawdragon‘s lists of the 500 leading practitioners in Restructuring & Insolvency and Corporate Employment.
Launched in 2005, Lawdragon is a legal media company that features news, editorial features, and a variety of guides to the nation’s top legal professionals who lead in a particular practice area or industry and who have handled significant matters within the past year.
Please see below for our list of honorees:
This list, according to Lawdragon, recognizes attorneys who “dazzle with their mastery of finance, dispute resolution, and litigation strategy under extreme duress.” Inclusion is based on who handled the largest restructurings globally, demonstrated professional leadership, and earned the respect of their peers. Honorees “range from all corners of the globe and may be the busiest lawyers on the planet thanks to the epic confluence of Covid-19, global financial collapse and a reordering of everything we took as a given just six months back.”
Congratulations to the following Bankruptcy, Restructuring, & Recovery attorneys named to this inaugural list, as well as to the Lawdragon 500 Leading U.S. Bankruptcy & Restructuring Lawyers list:
- Matthew Cavenaugh (Houston)
- Wade Cooper (Austin)
- Elizabeth Carol Freeman (Houston)
- Kristhy Peguero (Houston)
In its 13th year, this guide features attorneys who have been nominated by firms, clients, and peers as the nation’s top 500 practitioners representing corporate clients in wage and hour, discrimination, immigration, executive compensation and employee benefits, unions, and other labor management claims.
