Bankruptcy and restructuring lawyer Robert M. Hirsh joined global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright as a partner in the firm’s New York office. Hirsh joined Norton Rose Fulbright from Lowenstein Sandler.
Hirsh focuses his practice on debtor-in-possession financing, exit financing and distressed and special situation financing. In addition, he has substantial experience in Chapter 11 proceedings, representing creditor committees, acquirers, fiduciaries, indenture trustees, bondholders, boards of directors and other significant parties in complex restructurings both in and out of court.
With more than 25 years of experience spanning a wide array of industries, Hirsh has a particular emphasis on life sciences and healthcare (including long-term care and senior living), energy (including oil and gas), mining and exploration, manufacturing, e-commerce and hospitality.
“I am pleased to welcome Rob to Norton Rose Fulbright,” Jeff Cody, U.S. managing partner of Norton Rose Fulbright, said. “He will enhance our bankruptcy capabilities in New York, an important market where we are focused on further growth.”
“Rob is a widely respected and seasoned restructuring lawyer with impressive experience representing clients in all aspects of complex Chapter 11 proceedings,” Ryan Manns, U.S. co-head of restructuring at Norton Rose Fulbright, said. “He will be an immediate asset to our nationally-recognized bankruptcy practice and will enhance our global offering.”
“Norton Rose Fulbright’s deep bench of bankruptcy and finance practitioners along with an unmatched global platform provide an exciting opportunity for me and my practice,” Hirsh said. “I am excited to collaborate with my new colleagues across the firm as I continue advising clients through their most challenging bankruptcy cases.”
