Seasoned bankruptcy attorney Steven D. Usdin has joined Flaster/Greenberg PC as a shareholder in the Bankruptcy, Financial Restructuring and Risk Management Department.
Usdin, who will work in the firm’s Philadelphia office, was most recently a partner in the Business Practice Group at Cohen Seglias Pallas Greenhall & Furman P.C. Prior to working at Cohen Seglias, Usdin was Managing Partner of Adelman Lavine Gold and Levin, a boutique bankruptcy firm that was located in the Philadelphia region.
Last week, Flaster/Greenberg announced the arrival of Nella Bloom, also a bankruptcy attorney, from Cohen Seglias. Licensed to practice law in Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Bloom focuses her practice on general bankruptcy and corporate matters.
Usdin focuses his practice on commercial and personal bankruptcy, general corporate and transactional matters and commercial litigation. With more than 30 years experience in the legal services industry, he has appeared on behalf of debtors, creditors and equity security holders’ committees, and secured creditors in a variety of proceedings at the Trial and Appellate levels in State and Federal Courts.
“Steven is a welcomed addition to our firm and to our Bankruptcy Practice,” said Peter R. Spirgel, Managing Shareholder and Chief Operating Officer of Flaster/Greenberg. “His extensive history in bankruptcy and litigation, and understanding of our clients’ needs, make him an outstanding addition to the firm.”
A frequent lecturer and author, Usdin speaks and writes on topics of interest in his areas of expertise and has been trustee and director for several charitable organizations in the Philadelphia area. Licensed to practice law in both New York and Pennsylvania, Usdin is a graduate of Brooklyn Law School and received his BA from the University of Rochester.
Usdin will join several Bankruptcy shareholders in the firm’s Philadelphia office, including Gene Chikowski, chair of the Bankruptcy practice group; William Burnett, a member of the firm’s Executive Committee; and Harry Giacometti, who joined the firm in June 2011.
