Young Conaway’s Bankruptcy and Restructuring Group is pleased to announce that Jack Jacobs has returned to the firm after almost three decades on the benches of the Delaware Court of Chancery and the Delaware Supreme Court.  As a Vice Chancellor and Supreme Court Justice, Jack oversaw and decided some of America’s seminal corporate disputes and has been instrumental in shaping how Delaware entities dutifully conduct their corporate affairs. Jack provides Young Conaway’s Portfolio Company Specialty Group with unparalleled experience and guidance.

Young Conaway is launching a new program that will merge our restructuring expertise with former Justice Jacobs’ corporate experience.  This program will provide a detailed governance framework from the point of distress or potential conflict through the consummation and closure of a value-maximizing (and risk mitigating) transaction.
