Hogan Lovells Expands New York Office with Addition of Finance Partner Ron Silverman
02 March 2015
NEW YORK, 2 March, 2015 – Hogan Lovells announced today that Ron Silverman has joined its Finance practice as a Business Restructuring and Insolvency (BRI) partner. He will reside in the firm's New York office.
Silverman previously practiced as a partner with Bingham McCutchen. His practice is focused on the representation of financial institutions, hedge funds, and other sophisticated investors, in the context of financial restructurings, insolvencies, and distressed acquisitions. He has handled Chapter 11 and Chapter 15 work on both the Debtor and creditor side.
A significant portion of his practice involves cross-border transactions whose geographic scope spans South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, with a particular focus in China. He also has experience in restructuring transactions with a concentration in the oil and gas industry.
“Ron’s practice and expertise further diversifies our already established BRI practice in New York,” said Sharon Lewis, global Finance practice group leader. “His focus in the oil and gas industry will be an incredible asset as restructurings in the industry are expected to increase in the next few years, both in the United States and abroad.”
“Hogan Lovells’ global platform and the support of the cross-border BRI practice provide an ideal opportunity to better serve my client base,” said Silverman. “As we see an increase in the numbers of cross-border restructurings, I am looking forward to working alongside such a prominent and forward-thinking global team.”
Silverman received his J.D. from University of Connecticut School of Law and his B.A. with honors from Trinity College.
