Haynes and Boone, LLP Partner Ian Peck ranks among the nation’s Top 100 restructuring lawyers, according to the Global M&A Network’s 2023 listing of the nation’s leading restructuring professionals.
Global M&A Network’s “highly competitive” selection process was based on an evaluation of the best performing firms and most successful restructuring transactions from the previous year.
“Ian is extremely deserving of this award. His extensive experience in middle-market and larger cases has made him an invaluable part of our team,” said Partner Charles A. Beckham Jr., the president of the American College of Bankruptcy.
Ian deftly handles complex Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases, out-of-court workouts, and distressed mergers and acquisitions across a range of industries with the understanding that debt restructuring and bankruptcy are often the most stressful and critical events in a client’s history.
His experience involves leading roles in multiple noteworthy Chapter 11 cases, including representing a bankrupt bank holding company facing claims of over $2 billion, representing the buyer of a bankrupt storage facility business for a purchase price of over $575 million, and leading the successful 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.
The Haynes Boone Restructuring Practice Group handles issues in large and complex out-of-court financial restructurings and Chapter 11 reorganization cases. The Chambers USA 2023 directory (Chambers and Partners) ranked the practice as a market leader in Texas. Chambers states that the firm is “renowned for its work on complex bankruptcy and restructuring cases” and its “tailored advice” to debtors, creditors, and buyers of distressed companies' assets and business operations.
