“Kristin, Frank and Adam are recognized leaders both within their practice industries and here at McDermott and we are thrilled they have accepted this charge to carry forward the Firm’s incredible culture and deepen our core value of #AlwaysBetter,” McDermott Chairman Ira Coleman said. “I also want to thank our outgoing office managing partners Jeffrey Steiner and Todd Finger in New York, and Jerry Sokol in Miami, for their outstanding leadership.”
Kristin, a partner in the firm’s Business Restructuring practice, represents a broad array of clients in bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings. She is industry recognized for her depth of experience assisting creditors maximize their recovery in distressed situations. Kristin is also frequently called upon to advise on distressed debt transactions.
“I am thrilled for this opportunity to lead our New York office alongside Frank and further promote McDermott as truly the best place to work,” Kristin said. “I look forward to continuing to steward community involvement and expanding our presence locally.”

“McDermott’s commitment to our clients and our people is unparalleled and has fueled a great deal of success these past several years. We plan to double down on this success by making huge investments in the coming years to expand our capabilities and client services and add strength to our industry leading practices, especially in New York, a strategic priority for the firm,” said Frank. “It is a real privilege to have the support of my partners and to be in a position to work with the team to lead this growth.”
