November 30, 2020

Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP is pleased to announce that Joshua K. Brody has joined the firm as a partner in the New York office.  Brody, formerly a partner at Jones Day, will continue his corporate bankruptcy and restructuring practice.

“Josh will be a strong addition to our restructuring practice,” said Ken Doran, Chairman and Managing Partner of Gibson Dunn.  “He has deep experience with both borrowers and lenders, and will add additional bench strength to our thriving restructuring practice.”

“I’m pleased that Josh is joining our New York team,” said David Feldman, Co-Chair of the firm’s Business Restructuring and Reorganization Group.  “We have a market-leading bankruptcy practice, especially on the creditor side.  Josh is a highly regarded and well-rounded bankruptcy partner with the skill set and experience to add bench strength on all aspects of our practice on both debtor and creditor sides.”

“I’m excited to join Gibson Dunn,” said Brody.  “Gibson Dunn’s solid restructuring platform, with excellent ties to both the creditor and debtor side of the market, will serve as a strong foundation as I begin the next chapter of my career.  I’ve known a number of Gibson Dunn’s bankruptcy and restructuring partners for many years and have even worked alongside several – I could not be happier to call them colleagues once again.”
