According to the ACB, Ian and a select group of other new fellows will be “honored and recognized for their professional excellence and exceptional contributions to the bankruptcy and insolvency practice.”
The American College of Bankruptcy is an honorary public service association of bankruptcy and insolvency professionals and plays an important role in sustaining professional excellence in the industry. Nominees are invited to join based on a proven record of achievement reflecting the highest standards of professionalism, ethics, character, integrity, professional expertise and leadership.
Chair of the Board of Regents Patricia Redmond noted, “These professionals exemplify the combination of exceptional talent and selfless service that is the hallmark of College Fellows. The Board of Regents is thrilled to welcome Class 35 and looks forward to celebrating each new Fellow in Washington, D.C this spring.”
Ian is a 24-year veteran at Haynes Boone who handles complex Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases, out-of-court workouts, and distressed mergers and acquisitions transactions across a range of industries. Ian’s experience involves leading roles in numerous high-profile restructurings, including serving as lead counsel for a bankrupt bank-holding company facing claims of over $2 billion and representing one of the world’s largest generators and marketers of electricity in its successful Chapter 11 reorganization. Recently, Ian led the successful Chapter 11 reorganization of a nationwide retailer, which resulted in payment of creditors in full and reinstatement of equity, despite the extreme challenges imposed by COVID-19.
Ian has extensive experience in middle-market cases, including representing a manufacturer and operator of helicopters in their successful restructuring as well as guiding the largest retail liquor chain in Texas and a 400-store furniture retailer through the Chapter 11 process. Outside of the courtroom, Ian has helped several companies renegotiate their financial and contractual obligations to avoid contentious litigation and lengthy reorganization proceedings. He is also a frequent author and speaker on various restructuring topics.
