Jayme Goldstein is a partner in the Financial Restructuring Group, and serves as one of its three national Practice Group Leaders. Jayme has significant experience in advising ad hoc groups of hedge funds, private equity funds, banks, large investment managers and other financial institutions in complex in-court and out-of-court restructurings and distressed M&A transactions across a variety of industry sectors.
Jayme is routinely recognized by industry-leading publications. He was listed by Chambers USA in its 2017 Leading Lawyers for Business and was hailed by clients as “easy to work with, proactive, thoughtful in coming up with solutions and responsive.” He was also selected by Turnarounds & Workouts for three years in a row (2014–2016) as one of its 12 “Outstanding Young Restructuring Lawyers” under the age of 40; named by M&A Advisor in 2015 as one of its “40 Under 40 Emerging Leaders”; and declared a “Leading Lawyer” by the IFLR1000, a “Future Star” by Benchmark Litigation and a “New York Super Lawyer” by Super Lawyers (after initially being named a “Rising Star”).
Focusing on matters that require deep knowledge of corporate finance, capital markets and litigation, Jayme has played an integral role in some of the largest restructuring and bankruptcy matters in the country. He takes pride in devising creative and commercial solutions to challenging situations – as demonstrated in his highly successful litigations concerning coal industry giant Foresight Energy (a widely publicized change-of-control litigation on behalf of holders of the company’s $600 million senior unsecured notes, ultimately leading to a consensual out-of-court restructuring) and U.S. Oncology (a protracted make-whole premium dispute on behalf of holders of the company’s $775 million senior secured notes); and fulcrum security creditor groups in chapter 11 proceedings recently commenced by 21st Century Oncology, a major integrated cancer-care provider, and Panda Temple Power, a natural gas-fired, combined cycle electric power generation facility.
