Barnes & Thornburg has added Gregory G. Plotko as a partner in the firm’s New York office in the Finance, Insolvency and Restructuring department. Greg advises a wide range of clients in high-profile Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases, out-of-court restructurings, and other distressed situations.
Greg’s practice focuses on advising credit funds, financial institutions, and major secured and unsecured creditors in negotiating and litigating Chapter 11 plans, debtor-in possession financing, plan support agreements, equity commitments debt exchanges, and rights offerings. He also advises investors on creditor rights and remedies, liability management transactions, distressed-to-control acquisitions and claims trading.
“We expect 2023 to be a busy year for bankruptcy cases and we’re excited to bring Greg on board to help our clients navigate the various challenges that are likely to arise,” said Mark Owens, chair of the firm’s Finance, Insolvency and Restructuring department. “Greg’s experience counseling a diverse range of clients through almost every aspect of insolvency will be an asset to our team on the East Coast and nationally.”
Prior to joining Barnes & Thornburg, Greg was a partner at Crowell & Moring LLP.
“Greg has grown an impressive bankruptcy practice in New York over the past 20 years,” said Rob Boller, partner-in-charge of the firm’s New York office. “His addition will expand and strengthen our capabilities in New York, deepen our bench of talented attorneys, and allow us to better serve our private fund and investment manager clients.”
