Lawdragon 500 Names Two Mintz Attorneys To Its 2023 Leading U.S. Bankruptcy And Restructuring Lawyers List

BOSTON – Mintz is pleased to announce that William Kannel and Daniel Bleck were named to the 2023 Lawdragon 500 Leading U.S. Bankruptcy and Restructuring Lawyers guide for their work helping clients manage distressed assets. Compiled annually, the list is a result of intensive journalistic research into the lawyers handling the biggest restructurings globally, intersected with professional leadership and respect of their peers.

“This elite corps of U.S. lawyers represent the best of the best helping companies navigate ailing economies and uncertain times,” the publication states. “Lawyers recognized here range from transactional lawyers whose ways with finance can transform a distressed company to financial litigators, both of the traditional bankruptcy court variety and, increasingly, those who challenge and defend financial restructuring moves that have become inherent to distressed deals.”

As Chair of Mintz’s national and highly regarded Bankruptcy & Restructuring Practice, Mr. Kannel has extensive experience in corporate and municipal reorganizations and debt restructurings both in and out of court. He represents creditors and debtors across a wide range of industries throughout the country in all phases of distressed debt negotiations, bankruptcy litigation, and distressed asset acquisitions. Mr. Kannel is recognized as one of the leading attorneys in the nation for his work representing bond trustees and bondholders in Chapter 9 bankruptcies and other governmental and municipal insolvencies.

Mr. Bleck focuses his practice on representing institutional investors, lenders and creditors in financial restructurings, litigation, and creditors’ rights. He is predominately known for his representation of bondholders, bond trustees and other creditor groups in various distressed continuing care retirement communities and health care related entities nationwide. In addition, Mr. Bleck has a broad practice in representing distressed tax-exempt debt holders in a number of other sectors ranging from hospitality and manufacturing to clients in distressed acquisitions and divestitures.
