Mayer Brown announced that Jason Friedman joined its Banking & Finance practice as a partner in New York, where he will focus on leveraged finance and private credit transactions. He joins from Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP.
“Jason is a sophisticated and experienced corporate finance and restructuring lawyer whose combination of leveraged finance, private credit and restructuring capabilities fits squarely with the uptick in client demand for in-and out-of-court complex debt restructuring experience,” said Paul Jorissen, co-leader of the firm’s Banking & Finance practice.
Jason’s practice primarily involves representing borrowers, private equity sponsors, banks, hedge funds, alternative asset managers and other institutional investors in a broad range of domestic and cross-border debt finance and financial restructuring transactions, bankruptcy cases, special situations investments and distressed acquisitions.
“Mayer Brown’s reputation for fostering a truly collaborative culture is well known, and I am eager to be working alongside this talented group of dealmakers,” said Jason Friedman. “I’m looking forward to contributing to the firm’s market leading finance and restructuring platforms and helping clients navigate some of the most complicated business challenges in a broad range of financial products.”
“Many of our private credit and international bank clients are headquartered in New York – having Jason on the ground to advise on complex leveraged financings and restructuring transactions will deepen our client offering on the East Coast,” said Matthew Ingber, managing partner of the New York office.
