Patrick Hughes of Haynes and Boone Inducted to 26th Class of American College of Bankruptcy Fellows


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Haynes and Boone, LLP Partner Patrick Hughes has been inducted as a fellow in the 26th Class of the American College of Bankruptcy. He is one of 34 new fellows being honored for their professional excellence and exceptional contributions to the restructuring and insolvency fields.

The American College of Bankruptcy is an honorary association of bankruptcy and insolvency professionals, and plays an important role in sustaining professional excellence in the industry. 

Nominees are extended an invitation to join based on a sustained record of achievement reflecting the highest standards of professionalism, ethics, character, integrity, professional expertise and leadership contributing to the enhancement of bankruptcy and insolvency law and practice; sustained evidence of scholarship, teaching, lecturing or writing on bankruptcy or insolvency; and commitment to elevate knowledge and understanding of the profession and public respect for the practice.

Hughes joins three other Haynes and Boone lawyers who have been inducted into the college – Bob Albergotti, Charles Beckham and Robin Phelan.

“We join together to welcome our outstanding partner Patrick Hughes to the college,” the three lawyers said. “In our minds, Pat clearly embodies the high values and strong legal ethics the American College of Bankruptcy was established to honor. This accolade is certainly well deserved.”

At the firm, Hughes is the administrative partner of the new Denver office. He has particular experience in restructuring matters affecting energy companies, and companies subject to mass tort or large litigation claims. His practice has involved key roles in some of the largest business bankruptcy cases filed and has advocated for clients such as Dow Corning Corporation, GAF Corp., Quigley Corporation, Armstrong Industries, and Garlock Corporation. He is credited with a number of reported court decisions in many noteworthy cases of regional and national significance, and is recognized in the field as someone who understands what the bankruptcy process can do, and how it may help solve problems.

In addition to his business-centered practice, Hughes is dedicated to the provision of legal services for the underprivileged. He is committed to ensuring his clients are directly involved in the legal process that affects them. He has been recognized by the state and local bar for his work as chair of the Houston Bar Association’s Bankruptcy Pro Bono Section since its 1999 inception. 

The induction ceremony and reception in honor of the new fellows took place at the Smithsonian Donald W. Reynolds Center for American Art and Portraiture on March 13.
