Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP has added J. Gregory Milmoe to its Boston and New York offices as a shareholder in the firm’s Restructuring & Bankruptcy Practice.
Just three months after retirement, the former co-chair of the bankruptcy and corporate restructuring practice at Skadden is back into practice.
J. Gregory Milmoe, who retired from Skadden on Dec. 31, recently joined Greenberg Traurig as a partner in New York and Boston.
In 2011, Milmoe was part of a Skadden team retained by commodities and financial derivatives broker MF Global Holdings Inc., whose bankruptcy was one of the largest in history with debts of almost $39.7 billion.
"We are delighted to welcome Greg to the firm," said Nancy A. Mitchell, co-chair of the firm’s Global Restructuring & Bankruptcy Practice and a regional operating shareholder for the firm’s New York and Boston offices. “His broad experience and reputation as one of the United States’ leading restructuring lawyers will enhance and complement our strong and growing presence in the restructuring community.”
Milmoe commented, “I am thrilled to join Greenberg Traurig to continue my career as a practicing lawyer. Greenberg Traurig is a very comfortable fit from a cultural point of view – we share the ‘walk through walls’ approach to client needs, and I am looking forward to working with such distinguished and collaborative colleagues.”
