When one thinks of companies going through bankruptcy, the idea of building doesn’t really come to mind. But Jason Cohen sees things differently. Jason has been building things since his college days and his restructuring practice fits right into his skill-set.
Ever since he bought and rebuilt his first classic car, a 1962 Jaguar Mark 2, Jason knew he was onto something. Taking something that that was beautiful yet in disrepair, and figuring out how to bring it back to life is something he is passionate about. Whether it’s dealing with international shipping companies, energy industry giants or retailers, Jason – like a true builder – looks at the big picture and figures out how to make things work for the varied players involved. Often that means helping to salvage and rebuild the company into something better. Over the last ten years, Jason’s legal skills have been in high demand, and he successfully represents both debtors and secured creditors in all phases of corporate debt restructurings, including negotiating out-of-court workouts and litigating in-court Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases with assets ranging from $20mm to over $1bln.
After a long week of rebuilding companies and cars, Jason enjoys crafting his own beer to share with family and friends. He has even built his own kegerator. The Cohen Chapter 11 brown ale is not available in stores yet, but knowing Jason, eventually it may be. To learn more about Jason, check out his firm bio.
