American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) announced that Brian Koenig, Shareholder at Koley Jessen, has been selected as one of its emerging leaders and honorees for its “40 Under 40” Initiative, which identifies 40 top industry professionals under the age of 40, for his excellence in corporate bankruptcy and bankruptcy-related litigation.
The “40 Under 40” winners, distinguished by professional achievements and service, were selected by experienced professionals from ABI's leadership. The winners were chosen from diverse practice areas such as law, finance, consulting, academia, government and more. More than 300 nominations were received.
“The 2018 ABI ‘40 Under 40’ Class is already advancing the bankruptcy profession forward,” said ABI Executive Director Samuel J. Gerdano. “Each of these remarkable young men and women are attaining achievements not just in their professional careers, but also as leaders in their communities.”
In Brian’s commercial bankruptcy and financially-distressed transactions practice, Brian counsels a variety of clients including creditors, debtors, bankruptcy trustees, creditor committees, and post-bankruptcy investors, to help them evaluate risks, minimize their exposure, maximize their recoveries, structure transactions, and cost-effectively resolve issues.
