HOUSTON, TX – Recently elected Bracewell LLP Partner Jason G. Cohen was selected by the Beard Group’s Turnarounds & Workouts as one of only twelve Outstanding Young Restructuring Lawyers for 2016. Cohen was also honored as an Outstanding Young Restructuring Lawyer by Turnarounds & Workouts as an associate in 2014.
Cohen, who focuses his practice on corporate financial restructuring, was the only attorney outside of New York to make the 2016 list of Outstanding Young Restructuring Lawyers. This listing recognizes restructuring attorneys under the age of 40 who are leaders in their practice.

Over the last 10 years, Cohen has represented corporate debtors and senior and junior secured creditors in all phases of corporate debt restructurings, including negotiating out-of-court workouts and litigating in-court Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases with assets ranging from $20 million to more than $1 billion. In such capacity, he has often advised parties on debt and equity financing, as well as asset sales.
