Secondary Market Exit Ops From Weil/Kirkland BK

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Dec 23, 2013 3:00 am

Want to jump ship eventually (within a few years) to a secondary market, but there's little (if any) bankruptcy work in that area.

I've heard rumors of attorneys going in-house (general corporate) or swapping practice areas (finance being the easiest to go into), but what other options do I have? Are these firms willing to keep a few specialized attorneys around just for bankruptcy-related issues?

SO, lifestyle, and family ties make the secondary market very compelling

Not much big debtor work outside NYC but depends how small a market we are talking. Also the most lucrative ops from Weil/Kirkland BK (distressed asset fund) are also lately in NYC. That said, you probably could get BK boutique or another big firm that has mainly a creditor's practice. Check chambers for whatever the market is to get a feel for who the major players in the region are.
