Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP is pleased to announce that Gregory V. Demo has joined the firm. Greg will join the firm’s burgeoning practice representing hedge funds and other significant holders of securities in connection with complex chapter 11 reorganizations. In addition, he will be part of the team handling insolvency-related sales and acquisitions.

HoldCo manages assets in excess of $1 billion and has historically focused its investments in financial institutions, CDOs, and stressed, distressed, and special situations. While at HoldCo, Greg worked with the fund’s investment professionals to create litigation strategies in state, federal, and bankruptcy court for investments exceeding $200 million in aggregate notional amount and oversaw all aspects of the implementation of such strategies.

Greg was also responsible for the creation of three new investment vehicles with aggregate regulatory assets under management exceeding $700 million, including drafting limited partnership agreements, side letters, and other governance documents, reviewing marketing materials, preparing for and attending due diligence meetings with potential investors, and managing external counsel.

“We are thrilled that Greg will be working with our clients investing in distressed debt. He adds incredible and invaluable in-house experience to our group to help clients navigate and mitigate the risks of distressed debt investing,” says Isaac Pachulski, p partner at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones.

“I am excited to join Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones, a firm on the cutting edge of distressed debt,” says Demo. “The culmination of my experience will be a tremendous asset to the firm’s practitioners who are initiating and evaluating new, real time legal developments affecting this area of the law,” adds Demo.
