Lawdragon has named Chicago attorney Brian Shaw, a member of Cozen O’Connor’s Bankruptcy, Insolvency & Restructuring practice, to its 2022 list of the Top 500 Leading U.S. Bankruptcy and Restructuring Lawyers.
Lawdragon, a Los Angeles-based network for lawyers and clients, produces the annual list of the nation’s top bankruptcy and restructuring lawyers. Among other accolades, the listed lawyers have been recognized for excelling in financial restructuring in and outside of the courtroom, helping companies survive the pandemic to move forward, and finding financing and acquirors for distressed companies. The selection is based on journalistic research, submissions by firms and clients, and vetting by peers.
Shaw focuses his practice on financial restructuring, bankruptcy, and other in- and out-of-court distressed solutions, along with attendant litigation, representing debtors, creditors, and other parties-in-interest in proceedings throughout the country. He has guided Chapter 11 debtors, Chapter 7 and 11 trustees, creditors’ and noteholders’ committees, assignees, landlords, liquidating trustees, labor organizations, preference and fraudulent conveyance defendants, receivers, and secured and unsecured creditors through all aspects of bankruptcy, insolvency, and restructuring.
A fellow at the American College of Bankruptcy, he has served as president of the American Bankruptcy Institute and has also chaired the Chicago Bar Association’s Bankruptcy and Reorganization Section.
Shaw received his law degree (J.D., magna cum laude, 1993) from the University of Illinois College of Law and his undergraduate degree (B.A., cum laude, 1989) from Tufts University.
