John (Jack) Murray is an associate in our Financial Restructuring & Bankruptcy group. Jack represents clients in connection with bankruptcy and insolvency matters. In addition to his insolvency related practice, Jack regularly advises corporate clients on a wide range of strategic transactions, including mergers and acquisitions.
My primary focus is on advising clients on all aspects of bankruptcy, insolvency, and distressed situations. I regularly represent creditors and debtors in Chapter 11 reorganizations, Chapter 7 liquidations, out-of-court restructurings, and distressed acquisitions. My bankruptcy practice also extends to representing creditors in connection with consumer bankruptcy cases.
In addition to my insolvency related practice, I also advise clients on complex and cross-border strategic transactions, including mergers and acquisitions
Prior to joining Nixon Peabody, I was an associate in the business restructuring groups at international law firms in both Boston and New York, and I completed clerkships with the Honorable Ann M. Nevins of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Connecticut and the Honorable Marie E. Lihotz of the Superior Court of New Jersey, Appellate Division.
During law school, I was a managing editor of the Northeastern University Law Review. I also served as a judicial intern to the Honorable Norman H. Stahl of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, the Honorable Joan N. Feeney of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Massachusetts, the Honorable Lee Solomon of the Supreme Court of New Jersey, and as an intern with the Office of the United States Trustee in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic has presented new challenges to the economy. While the stress of inflationary pressures and rising interest rates may not immediately manifest liquidity issues, clients should consider restructuring options, either for themselves or their counterparties, in the long term.
Jack joined Nixon Peabody in January 2021. Representative work may reflect experience from prior firms.
