IWIRC Honors New York Partner Judith Elkin with the Melnik Award


NEW YORK – Haynes and Boone, LLP Partner Judith Elkin has been selected as the 2013 recipient of the International Women's Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation (IWIRC) Melnik Award recognizing exceptional contributions by a member.

Since joining the organization in 1994, Elkin has significantly contributed to the growth of the IWIRC by serving on the board of directors for more than 10 years and participating in projects such as the IWIRC’s rebranding initiative through the development and implementation of a new logo and website, restructuring IWIRC’s board of director’s structure and bylaws, and fostering its expansion to over 1,200 members and 38 networks around the world.

Jennifer Meyerowitz, IWIRC chair, noted that Elkin has “made incredible strides for the organization.” It is the “dedication and commitment of our volunteer leaders that have allowed us to see the incredible growth that we celebrate on our 20th anniversary,” Meyerowitz said.

At Haynes and Boone, Elkin is a partner in the firm’s Bankruptcy and Business Restructuring section, which she chaired for five years. She has more than 30 years of experience representing debtors, creditors, creditors' committees, lenders, trustees, acquirers and other parties in interest in reorganization proceedings and financial restructurings.

Elkin will be honored at IWIRC’s Annual Spring Meeting in National Harbor, Md. on April 18.

The IWIRC is a not-for-profit organization committed to the connection, promotion and success of women in the insolvency and restructuring professions worldwide.
