New partners add significant strength to growing commercial lending and bankruptcy, workout and restructuring practices.
NEW YORK, July 2, 2015 — Chapman and Cutler LLP is pleased to announce that Steven Wilamowsky and Ryan Jackson have joined the firm as partners in the firm’s New York City office. The addition of these accomplished attorneys marks continued growth for Chapman’s New York practice.
Wilamowsky focuses his practice on representing investors, creditors, and lenders in complex restructurings, both in and out of bankruptcy court. “Steve’s extensive litigation experience, in addition to representing investors and buyers of distressed assets through Chapter 11 sales, will contribute valuable support to Chapman’s Litigation, Bankruptcy and Restructuring practice,” noted Franklin Top III, co-head of the group. Prior to joining Chapman, Wilamowsky was a partner with Bingham McCutchen and subsequently Morgan Lewis, which acquired Bingham last year.
Jackson focuses on commercial lending transactions, financial restructurings of distressed companies, and event-driven acquisitions and dispositions. “Ryan’s work advising private funds, investment banks, and other financial institutions in a broad range of debt and equity investments for middle-market companies, particularly multi-unit franchise restaurant businesses, further complements our growing practice in these markets,” noted Larry Halperin, New York office co-head. Jackson joins Chapman from Richards Kibbe & Orbe.
“Steve and Ryan are valuable additions to our growing New York office,” said Tim Mohan, Chapman’s Chief Executive Partner. “Given their demonstrated industry knowledge and commitment to providing outstanding service to clients, we’re fortunate to have them join our team.”
