Kobre & Kim Continues to Expand Global Insolvency Practice With Senior Hire

September 12, 2017

Kobre & Kim welcomes Daniel Saval to its cross-border insolvency litigation practice in New York. Mr. Saval represents clients in multijurisdictional insolvency and corporate restructuring disputes, and he has particular experience in contentious proceedings involving funds in liquidation triggered by fraud or wrongdoing.

“Dan is a dynamic and talented lawyer who is exceptionally positioned to meet our clients’ unique, multijurisdictional needs,” said Farrington Yates, an insolvency disputes lawyer in the firm’s New York office. “His breadth of experience, including relating to asset recovery, will support and surely enhance the firm’s insolvency litigation practice.”

Mr. Saval is the fifth practitioner to join Kobre & Kim’s Insolvency & Debtor-Creditor Disputes team in the past year, following Mr. Yates in February, London-based Mark Griffiths in April, and New York-based Adam Lavine and George Utlik also in April. The team has handled some of the largest insolvency and bankruptcy disputes in recent times, involving SunEdison, Energy Future Holdings, Baha Mar, Caesars Entertainment Group and Petters, among others.

 Mr. Saval is a Fellow of INSOL International.
