Ed Weisfelner is the head of Brown Rudnick’s bankruptcy and corporate restructuring practice group. He is also a member of the firm’s management committee. He has nearly 35 years of experience representing official and ad hoc creditors’ and equity holders’ committees, individual creditors, indenture trustees, equity holders, and other parties in many of the nation’s largest in-court and out-of-court restructurings. Ed has also served as a court-appointed litigation trustee, mediator and examiner.

Ed is a frequent lecturer in the areas of bankruptcy and corporate restructuring. He is a five-time recipient of the “Outstanding Restructuring Lawyers” award from Turnarounds and Workouts. He was also included as one of only 67 nationally recognised restructuring attorneys in the 11th edition of the K&A Restructuring Register, a peer group listing selected by an advisory board of financial advisers, lawyers and private practitioners. Recently, Ed was honoured by the UJA Federation of New York bankruptcy and reorganisation group with the 2015 Professor Lawrence P King Award, a prestigious philanthropic award given to a leader in the bankruptcy and reorganisation industry "whose spirit of generosity and kindness is both boundless and selfless". He is also recognised by Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business in the area of bankruptcy law. Additionally, Ed is recognised in Woodward/White's The Best Lawyers in America, in the areas of bankruptcy and creditor-debtor rights/insolvency and reorganisation law, and bankruptcy litigation. He was also listed in WWL: Restructuring & Insolvency (2013).

Ed is a member of the American Bankruptcy Institute, the New York and American Bar Associations, and the Turnaround Management Association.

WWL says: Edward Weisfelner is "a fighter" who "can see through the extraneous issues". Clients state he has "a sixth sense for how issues will play in front of a court" and is "an excellent negotiator".
