The American College of Bankruptcy has honored Sidley partner Sam Newman by naming him to its 35th Class of Fellows.
The American College of Bankruptcy (the “College”) is an honorary public service association made up of international insolvency professionals who have been invited to join as Fellows based on a proven record of the highest standards of expertise, leadership, integrity, professionalism, scholarship, and service to the bankruptcy and insolvency practice and to their communities. The College now has over 800 Fellows, who have distinguished themselves in their practice and in their contribution to the insolvency field. Nominees are extended an invitation to join based on a sustained record of achievement. They are selected by a Board of Regents from recommendations of the Circuit Admissions Council in each federal judicial circuit and Nominating Committees for Judicial and International Fellows.
In response to his induction, Sam said, “I’m honored to be joining the College and am deeply grateful to my colleagues and partners across the United States, Europe, and Asia that make up Sidley’s market-leading restructuring practice for all their support and friendship.”
Sam Newman is a Los Angeles-based partner in Sidley’s Restructuring group. He represents companies and their owners through in-court and out-of-court restructurings, including Chapter 11 cases. Sam advises debtors, buyers, sellers, lenders, and borrowers in transactions involving distressed assets.
The induction of the 35th Class of Fellows is scheduled for Friday, March 22, 2024, in Washington, D.C.
