Nancy Isaacson, a partner in the firm’s Litigation Department and Bankruptcy & Financial Restructuring Practice Group, has been named to the 2023 Lawdragon 500 Leading U.S. Bankruptcy and Restructuring Lawyers list, a collection of leading advisors in the areas of financing, structuring, litigating and creating a pathway forward for distressed businesses. In 2020, Ms. Isaacson was named to the publication’s inaugural list of bankruptcy & restructuring attorneys.
The Lawdragon’s editorial team selects the lawyers for the Family 500 list through peer nomination submissions, journalistic research and an editorial vetting process. To qualify for inclusion, a lawyer will have been in practice 10 years, with extremely rare exceptions. Virtually all will be partners in their law practice. Leadership within their practice in a firm and or in relevant bar organizations is considered.
Ms. Isaacson focuses her practice in bankruptcy and insolvency, with an emphasis on trustee and creditor rights law. She serves as a Chapter 7 trustee for debtors in federal bankruptcy proceedings and has represented appellants in cases before the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. She has achieved a national profile in her area of practice through her involvement in a number of large bankruptcy matters representing tort claimants and landlords. She is an approved mediator for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, District of New Jersey.
