Partner


Frederick (Rick) Hyman is a partner in the New York office, and is a member of the firm’s corporate practice group, as well as the financial services practice group.

Rick focuses his practice on the representation of domestic and foreign lenders in connection with in-court and out-of-court workouts and restructurings. He regularly counsels agents and lenders in both large and middle-market transactions in connection with the development of strategies to maximize their recoveries, including negotiating forbearance agreements and waivers, amendments and all other elements of an out-of-court restructuring and recapitalization. 

Where bankruptcy is necessary, Rick represents lenders in all aspects of the case, including negotiating restructuring support agreements and debtor-in-possession financing facilities. He has recent experience representing agents and lenders in some of the largest energy-related bankruptcies in the Southern District of New York and Eastern District of Texas. He has represented a number of foreign agents and lenders in the contested chapter 11 bankruptcies of their foreign borrowers. Rick also has experience throughout his career representing debtors in Chapter 11 cases and foreign representatives in Chapter 15 proceedings.  He also represents stalking-horse and other bidders in connection with the acquisition of distressed assets.
