Mintz Levin Attorney Reorganization Law ‘Lawyer of the Year’


Jeffry A. Davis, a member of the Bankruptcy, Restructuring & Commercial Law Section of Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, has been named the Best Lawyers’ 2014 San Diego Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law “Lawyer of the Year.”

Best Lawyers, which compiles annual listings of outstanding lawyers, selects a single lawyer in each specialty in each community to honor as the “Lawyer of the Year.” These lawyers have received particularly high ratings by earning a high level of respect among their peers for their abilities, professionalism and integrity.

Davis has practiced in the area of bankruptcy, commercial law and debtor/creditor law for more than 30 years, and is a frequent lecturer on bankruptcy and commercial law subjects before professional and trade organizations.

His practice is focused on all aspects of bankruptcy (including debtors, creditors, and committees), out-of-court workouts, insolvency, receiverships, and debtor/creditor rights. In addition, Davis is a commercial law litigator in areas such as contract and business disputes. Industries in which he has recently represented clients include real estate, health care, automotive, software, waste management, and food services.

Most recently, he has been involved in the Chapter 9 case filed by the City of Stockton, California and related proceedings enforcing defaults under municipal bonds. Davis has been selected by his peers to appear in Best Lawyers in America each year since 1996.
