NEW YORK - In a noteworthy expansion of its bankruptcy litigation profile, leading shareholder and corporate governance law firm Grant & Eisenhofer P.A. has added experienced creditor-side bankruptcy litigator Matthew Morris to head its bankruptcy litigation practice.
Morris, who joins G&E as a director, was previously a bankruptcy partner with Hogan Lovells US LLP in New York. He formerly practiced in the bankruptcy department of Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy, as well as in the litigation department of Cravath, Swaine & Moore.
With a strong background in complex litigation, Morris focuses on creditor-side representations in large corporate bankruptcies. He has experience in both domestic and cross-border insolvencies. Among his prominent engagements, he has represented numerous claimants in the massive Lehman Brothers bankruptcy, including former Lehman derivative contract counterparties. He represented Icelandic Straumur Investment Bank in U.S. Chapter 15 proceedings. He also represented the official liquidators of the collapsed Cayman Islands-based Sphinx Funds in the bankruptcy of commodities firm Refco, as well as participated in the representation of the Official Unsecured Creditors' Committee in the Enron Chapter 11 case.
Morris received his undergraduate degree cum laude from Middlebury College, and his J.D. from Columbia Law School.
