At its annual meeting in Texas, the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges recognized Jenner & Block Partner Robert D. Gordon in its “Best Bankruptcy Cinderella Story” awards category. 

The category showcased cases that achieved difficult or unexpected success.  The City of Detroit’s landmark Chapter 9 bankruptcy case won in this category, and Mr. Gordon was recognized among the key players in the case, for his efforts serving as special restructuring counsel to the Detroit Retirement Systems.  The National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges’ annual meeting is a focal-point event on the industry calendar, drawing attendees broadly and primarily from the US and Canadian bankruptcy and restructuring communities.

Mr. Gordon is a partner in the firm’s Restructuring and Bankruptcy Practice.  He represents and provides strategic counsel to distressed companies, significant creditor constituencies, and other parties-in-interest in complex and high-stakes corporate and public-sector restructurings.
