Colleen Restel advises clients on all aspects of complex financial restructuring matters. She represents creditors’ committees, tort claimant committees, individual creditors, post-confirmation fiduciaries, securities plaintiffs, debtors, and other interested parties, whom she guides through the development and implementation of innovative solutions and strategies aimed at maximizing recoveries and achieving results.
Colleen has a strong track record in bankruptcy-related litigation involving the investigation, prosecution, and defense of actions against officers, directors, and lenders, including fraudulent transfer actions; and in representing clients in contested confirmation hearings. Prior to joining Lowenstein, she practiced commercial litigation—both within and outside of the bankruptcy context—at a New Jersey-based law firm, where she focused on complex discovery and trials for clients in the pharmaceutical, real estate, retail, and other sectors.
A former term clerk to the Hon. Rosemary Gambardella of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey, Colleen remains active in the New Jersey bankruptcy community as a member of the Lawyers Advisory Committee for the New Jersey Bankruptcy Court and as an active member and board member of several restructuring-industry related organizations; she also frequently writes and speaks on bankruptcy and credit-related trends.
