Pachulski Ranked Among Top Bankruptcy Firms by Chambers

June 12, 2009

Chambers and Partners has announced its rankings for 2009; Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP placed in the first tier of California law firms specializing in bankruptcy and restructuring:

"An acclaimed bankruptcy powerhouse, this boutique is hard to rival in terms of its size and the impressive volume of work passing through its lawyers’ highly experienced hands. Known for middle-market representation, the firm is engaged in some of the largest deals in the region. In November 2008 the firm was retained as bankruptcy counsel by the official committee of unsecured creditors of Circuit City Stores in its Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition filed in Virginia. The team is also representing the recently dissolved law firm Heller Ehrman in its application for $3.48 million malpractice insurance to cover future malpractice claims. At the helm of the practice, Richard Pachulski is regarded as one of the go-to lawyers for business reorganizations and debtor/creditor litigation. Brad Godshall’s experience in creditor committee representations has afforded him national renown, attracting clients like DIRECTV Latin America, Wherehouse and Rampage Clothing. Other notable members of the group are Jason Pomerantz and Jeffrey Pomerantz, who is particularly rated for his expertise in financial restructurings within the healthcare sector. "

The firm also ranked among Delaware firms:

"This firm is noted for its deep bankruptcy team. With offices in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, the firm is well placed to act for large national organizations and enjoys a healthy reputation across the country. Historically active for organizations in the retail and heavy industry sectors, the group's client base has broadened in recent times and it continues to impress with its representation of debtors in Chapter 11 work and out-of-court restructuring. Laura Davis Jones is renowned for her ability to handle enormous volumes of large, complex bankruptcy cases. Observers describe her as  “the most hard-working person in town – a perennial three thousand-plus hours-a-year person.”  Joining her in the tables this year is Bruce Grohsgal, an adept negotiator who commentators deem to be skilled and capable,'with a good perspective on matters.'"

Chambers has published the world's leading directories of the legal profession. Their reputation is based on the independence and objectivity of their research.For more information, please visit the Chambers website:
