Mayer Brown announced that Adam Paul has joined the firm as a partner in Chicago, where he will serve as a co-leader of the firm’s global Restructuring, Bankruptcy & Insolvency (RBI) practice. Previously, Mr. Paul was a partner at Kirkland & Ellis LLP.

“Adam offers the excellence and impressive experience our clients have come to expect from Mayer Brown in providing legal counsel on bankruptcy matters, including Chapter 11 representations, cross-border insolvencies, and debtor-in-possession financings,” said Brian Trust, a co-leader of the RBI practice at Mayer Brown. “Building on our recent growth in London, Adam’s arrival reaffirms our commitment to building an even stronger RBI practice to provide a distinctive and commercial full service offering to debtors, funds and other financial institutions.”

Mr. Paul has extensive experience representing both debtor and creditor clients in complex US and non-US reorganizations, both in and out of court, and advises boards of directors and senior officers regarding fiduciary duties and restructuring strategies. In addition to his general restructuring work, Mr. Paul has significant experience in bankruptcies involving mass tort and legacy liabilities.

“Mayer Brown was the ideal choice for me, particularly given the depth of the firm’s existing restructuring capabilities, broad and sophisticated client base, and demonstrated commitment to growth in this area,” said Mr. Paul. “I look forward to working with the firm’s integrated, multidisciplinary team to ensure that our clients receive the best of our knowledge and experience.”

“Adam is well-known as a trusted advisor who has been involved in some of the largest and most complex restructurings over the past decade,” said Britt Miller, the managing partner of Mayer Brown’s Chicago office. “His practice and proven dedication to client service makes him a perfect addition as we continue to build out our RBI practice in Chicago and globally.”

The addition of Mr. Paul to the RBI practice follows the recent hires of Michael Fiddy and Amy Jacks in London. Mr. Fiddy is a co-leader of the firm’s global RBI practice and Ms. Jacks is a co-leader of the UK and European RBI practice alongside Devi Shah.
