Robert Honeywell is a partner at the firm’s New York office and a member of the Restructuring and Insolvency practice group. He has more than three decades of experience in bankruptcy litigation and structured finance transactions. His litigation practice centers on New York and Delaware Chapter 11 and 15 bankruptcy cases — with a focus on defending against clawback suits and representing foreign (non-U.S.) creditors in U.S. bankruptcies — and has included appeals before the Southern District of New York and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. His transactions practice includes providing deal structure advice and closing opinions to protect against potential bankruptcy challenges later (for example, for recharacterization, true sale/off-balance-sheet challenges, substantive consolidation, or fraudulent transfer). Special areas of expertise have included representing aircraft lessors and lenders in Chapter 11 cases filed by foreign air carriers in New York (including Avianca, Aeroméxico and LATAM), and representing investment funds and brokerage customers in recovering their assets in broker-dealer bankruptcies (including Lehman Brothers).
