Friedman Joins Shulman Hodges in Chapter 11 Practice

Alan Friedman joined Shulman Hodges & Bastian as a partner in its Chapter 11 practice.

Prior to joining Shulman Hodges, Friedman was with Lobel Weiland Golden Friedman and had previously been a partner with Irell & Manella.

“We had the desire and opportunity to bring a highly valued attorney to our practice group and in Alan Friedman, we have added 30-plus years of experience in high-end Chapter 11 cases,” said James Bastian, head of SHB’s insolvency practice group. “Many experts believe Chapter 11 filings might be on the increase in the coming years and with Alan on our team, we will be well-positioned to assist clients in need of creative, but cost-effective help.”

Leonard Shulman, managing partner of SHB, added, “We view the Chapter 11 area as a growth area for our firm and by adding Alan Friedman, we believe there are few insolvency departments in southern California that can match our level of experience, talent and competitive rates.”

Founded in 1922, Shulman Hodges & Bastian is a full-service business law firm with offices in Irvine and Riverside, CA.
