O’Melveny’s Friedman Featured in Legal Bisnow

May 31, 2013 O’Melveny & Myers partner Peter Friedman was profiled in a Legal Bisnow article on May 30, 2013, titled “Bankruptcy Bulk Up.” Bisnow spoke to Friedman about O’Melveny’s recent addition of four partners to the Firm’s restructuring group. In the article, Friedman refers to restructuring as a “continued hot topic,” since "in a time of low yields, investors in distressed companies can receive tremendous returns." The article also outlines the new team’s extensive experience, representing debtors such as Enron and WorldCom, as well as the United States Treasury and President Obama's task force in the Chrysler and GM bankruptcy cases. The piece also summarizes Friedman’s career, beginning as a litigation associate, and the industries where he sees the potential for change in the future: “retail, energy, shipping, and gaming.” Friedman joined O’Melveny on May 10, 2013. He resides in Firm’s DC Office.
