Managing Associate

Ian M. Rubenstrunk

There are many ways to approach a deal gone wrong; we'll find the one with the best outcome.

My Approach

The simplest way to describe my practice is that I get involved when a deal has gone bad. I have represented banks, secured lenders, and creditors of all types in connection with a wide variety of distressed financial transactions. I routinely handle out-of-court debt restructurings, foreclosures, receiverships, assignments for the benefit of creditors, bankruptcies, as well as financially based litigation. No two matters in these areas are alike, and that is precisely what makes it enjoyable. Every new matter is an opportunity to dive into a new deal, industry, or problem and find an effective and efficient solution.

Because my involvement usually begins after a transaction has taken a turn for the worse, my goal is always to try and make the best of the situation. I use my past experiences and the numerous kinds of resolutions I have achieved and apply them to helping my clients find solutions that fit their businesses and goals.
