McDermott Expands Restructuring Practice in Atlanta to Meet Growing Client Demand


International law firm McDermott Will & Emery is pleased to announce the arrival of Atlanta-based partner Daniel (Dan) M. Simon to the Firm’s Restructuring and Insolvency practice. Dan is the latest addition to our growing Atlanta office, and to our rapidly expanding restructuring team. Dan joins the Firm from DLA Piper.

“Dan is a terrific lawyer with the institutional knowledge to quickly assess clients’ restructuring goals and leverage opportunities to drive results,” Felicia Perlman, global co-head of the Firm’s Restructuring and Insolvency Practice Group, said. “We’re pleased to add Dan to our growing restructuring team and know that our clients will instantly benefit from his veteran presence in the booming Atlanta market. His background advising on distressed healthcare and food and beverage matters also aligns with McDermott’s industry expertise, providing our clients with an even greater competitive advantage in these sectors.”

I am excited to help build on the vision and brand of the Firm, and to help assist our clients navigate distressed transactions.”

Dan focuses his practice on corporate restructuring and bankruptcy and represents clients in the healthcare, restaurant, transportation, technology and other industries. He counsels clients on strategic alternatives, corporate transactions and general corporate matters to best position them during distressed periods. He protects and advances the interests of distressed companies and parties seeking to purchase distressed assets in commercial workouts and Chapter 11 reorganization cases. Dan also assists clients with all aspects of Chapter 11 proceedings, including sales of assets pursuant to Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code, confirmation of plans of reorganization, resolution of claims and prosecution and defense of various adversary proceedings.
