Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce the continued strategic expansion of its Charlotte office with the addition of Robert A. Cox, Jr. as partner. Previously a partner with McGuireWoods, Cox joins the firm’s Bankruptcy, Restructuring, and Distressed Investing Practice Group. He is the fifth new attorney to join the firm in Charlotte so far this year. In April, a group of four attorneys joined the firm’s Financial Services Practice Group in Charlotte.
Cox focuses his practice on financial restructuring and insolvency, including bankruptcy, creditors’ rights, commercial workouts, and distressed asset acquisitions. His experience includes representing corporate debtors, creditors' committees, secured lenders, asset acquirers, and other parties in interest in bankruptcy courts throughout the United States.
“Rob is an important addition to our firm, and is another positive step in our continuing to grow our Charlotte office,” said Firm Chairman Beau Grenier. “In particular, his background in creditors’ rights and litigation is a natural fit for our work with the financial services industry. This is a service area we are expanding for our Charlotte-area clients.”
The firm’s Bankruptcy, Restructuring, and Distressed Investing Practice Group is comprised of 25 attorneys across four offices. Chambers USA gave the practice a Tier 1 ranking in its 2012 guide to leading law firms. Its members have extensive national experience representing debtors and lenders in Chapter 11 proceedings and in out-of-court workouts and restructurings. They regularly serve as counsel to businesses with unsecured claims and complex contractual relationships with Chapter 11 debtors. The group also represents clients involved with the acquisition of distressed businesses, assets, and loans.
“Bradley Arant Boult Cummings is well known for its bankruptcy practice, particularly on the debtor side, and moving to the firm is a natural step in the development of my practice,” said Cox. “The team assembled at this firm is outstanding, and I am excited by the possibilities as I work with my new colleagues.”
Cox holds a J.D. from Wake Forest University School of Law and a B.A. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
