Squire Patton Boggs announced today that partner Kelly Singer has rejoined the firm’s global Restructuring & Insolvency Practice after spending the past five years at Quarles and Brady LLP.
Stephen D. Lerner, partner and Chair of the Squire Patton Boggs Restructuring & Insolvency Practice commented, “Kelly brings a high level of experience in complex commercial restructurings and reorganization matters, particularly representing debtor and creditor committees, and will augment our capabilities both nationally and globally. We are delighted to welcome him back to the firm.”
Mr. Singer practices nationally in all aspects of commercial bankruptcy and restructuring matters. He has substantial experience representing corporate debtors and creditors in Chapter 11 bankruptcies and out-of-court restructurings, buyers in Section 363 bankruptcy sales, Chapter 11 trustees, and lenders in debtor-in-possession financings. He has also represented domestic and foreign corporations in the defense and prosecution of high-dollar, complex avoidance actions, including avoidance litigation involving alleged real estate Ponzi schemes.
Through over 14 years of practicing law, he has acquired considerable experience with clients in the retail, real estate, private equity, grocery, homebuilder, healthcare, construction, technology, energy, and professional sports industries. He has also represented sovereign and co-operative organizations, and handles matters for private and public domestic companies, as well as various Japanese, Chinese, and European companies in U.S. and foreign insolvency matters.
“With one of the largest global restructuring and insolvency teams and geographic platforms, Squire Patton Boggs offers a unique opportunity to collaborate with experienced professionals on significant domestic and cross-border engagements,” commented Mr. Singer. “It’s great to be rejoining many former friends and colleagues and I’m excited to add to the depth of the firm’s insolvency experience.”
