John Bae Joins Thompson Hine’s Restructuring Practice in New York

May 2, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 2, 2019--Thompson Hine LLP is pleased to announce that John Bae has joined the firm’s New York office as a partner in its Business Restructuring, Creditors’ Rights & Bankruptcy practice. He joins the firm from Baker Botts. Bae is the second lawyer added to this practice group in recent months – Thompson Hine welcomed David S. Forsh to the New York bankruptcy practice in October.

“John complements our growing New York bankruptcy practice,” said Todd E. Mason, partner-in-charge of the firm’s New York office. “His addition further strengthens the already deep expertise of the firm’s Business Restructuring, Creditors’ Rights & Bankruptcy practice group by augmenting our capability to represent clients in complex restructurings, both in and out of court, as well as in domestic and international insolvency proceedings.”

Bae has over 30 years of transactional and litigation experience in corporate restructurings. He represents key constituencies in complex and litigious chapter 11 cases and has extensive experience representing both debtors and creditors in restructurings involving mass torts and distressed commercial real estate. Bae regularly advises boards of directors of distressed companies as well as administrators of foreign companies in insolvency proceedings. He has broad experience across multiple industries and has represented clients in a number of high-profile matters, including representing an ad hoc committee of a group of second lien noteholders in the Caesars Entertainment Operating Company bankruptcy case and representing a group of bondholders in the GM bankruptcy case.

“I was attracted to the numerous practice and client synergies throughout Thompson Hine,” said Bae. “The firm’s recent expansion of its bankruptcy practice in New York was a draw, and its innovative service delivery model and dedication to delivering exceptional value to clients is impressive. I am confident that my clients will greatly benefit from this new platform.”

Bae serves on the Dean’s Advisory Board of the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University. He is also an adjunct professor at the school, where he teaches Advanced Bankruptcy. Bae earned his B.A. from the State University of New York at Albany and his J.D. from Hofstra Law.
