With more than 35 years of proven experience, Ken is the first call for companies seeking a strategic plan for recovery from financial distress.
Ken advises on the full spectrum of restructuring solutions, including Chapter 11 reorganizations, out-of-court workouts, financial restructurings, and litigation. He works closely with debtors, creditors' committees, lenders, landlords, and others in such diverse industries as paper and printing, food, furniture, pharmaceuticals, health care, and real estate.
For each matter, Ken starts by developing a strategic direction based on a clear understanding of his client's needs. His goals are to preserve the business or business relationship, to minimize disruption, and to move quickly toward a workable solution. His success is reflected both in his long list of accolades—including top rankings from Chambers USA (2008-2020) and The Deal's "Bankruptcy Insider"—and the fact that the majority of his practice is referral-based. Clients laud Ken's practical approach and sensitivity to the needs of their business, as well as his strong track record of successful outcomes. Clients and peers alike recognize Ken as "definitely a standout."
In his spare time, Ken serves on several philanthropy and nonprofit boards primarily devoted to health care and education. He currently serves as Interim Chair of the Board of the New York City Opera.
