Luckey’s practice focuses on advising corporate debtors and creditors on financial restructurings both in bankruptcy cases and out-of-court restructurings. He has an outstanding national reputation for his work on restructurings for highly leveraged companies, out-of-court workouts, insolvency guidance to boards and all aspects of bankruptcy cases. Luckey also has extensive experience representing acquirers of assets from insolvent companies in complex corporate reorganization cases.
“Luckey’s arrival bolsters our existing U.S. and global restructuring and insolvency practice and further supports our corporate and private equity practices in Texas,” said David Beveridge, Senior Partner at Shearman & Sterling. “His addition is yet another step in the firm’s strategic plan to strengthen our services and capabilities for new and existing clients in the U.S.”
