NEW YORK, September 16, 2022 – Leading international law firm Proskauer is pleased to announce that partner Brian S. Rosen has been named as one of Law360’s MVPs in Bankruptcy for 2022, an annual list featuring an elite slate of attorneys who have distinguished themselves by securing hard-earned successes in high-stakes litigation, complex global matters and record-breaking deals.
Brian has played pivotal roles in some of the most notable Chapter 11 and out-of-court restructurings, having represented and advocated for debtors, creditors, and acquirers in distressed situations.
Most recently, Brian was part of the Proskauer team that secured a historic Plan of Adjustment, filed by its client, the Financial Oversight and Management Board for Puerto Rico, on behalf of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and other entities. This first territorial debt restructuring in the history of the United States was a critical victory for Puerto Rico as it put an end to its four-year bankruptcy, cut billions in debt, and fixed a broken pension system.
Brian has also represented companies such as Enron, Washington Mutual, Foxwoods, United Companies Financial Corporation, New York Racing Association, Magna Entertainment, Classic Cable, Chrysler Properties, Olympia & York, The Leslie Fay Companies, Paracelsus Healthcare, Eastern Air Lines and Frontier Airlines in their chapter 11 and out-of-court restructurings.
This year, Law360 received more than 900 submissions. Law360’s 2022 MVP class features 188 attorneys who hail from 78 law firms and span 38 practice areas.
