Chambers recognized two of KRCL’s practice groups: Bankruptcy and Restructuring and General Commercial Litigation. Chambers also identified five KRCL attorneys for individual acknowledgment.

Chambers selected George Barber, Joseph Coleman, and Joseph Friedman for inclusion in the Bankruptcy and Restructuring section for their in-depth knowledge of the practice area. Chambers noted that KRCL’s Bankruptcy and Restructuring group has a reputation for advising unsecured creditor committees.

One source comments, "He's incredibly high-energy, suitably aggressive, and will take on any challenge put in front of him."
