Gordon Returns to Thompson Hine Restructuring Practice


Sean A. Gordon has returned to Thompson Hine as a partner in the firm’s Business Restructuring, Creditors’ Rights & Bankruptcy practice. He joins from Greenberg Traurig.

Gordon has a dynamic practice and works with various business, bank, committee, trustee and lending clients in a number of specialized areas. His practice focuses on bankruptcy, commercial loan workouts, creditors’ rights and commercial litigation. He has represented debtors, creditors’ committees, trustees, lenders, individual creditors, lessors, lessees and landlords, both inside and outside of bankruptcy. He is experienced in all phases of general commercial litigation and bankruptcy litigation through trial and appeal. Recently, Gordon recovered more than $17 million on behalf of a liquidating trust in a Chapter 11 case involving litigation against a plan sponsor in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.

“We enthusiastically welcome Sean back to the firm,” said Tim McDonald, Atlanta office partner-in-charge, of Gordon’s return to Thompson Hine. “Sean originally helped expand Thompson Hine’s insolvency and bankruptcy litigation practice to the Southeast and now provides additional experience at the local level. He is an important strategic addition to the Atlanta office and the practice.”

Gordon is the fourth partner to join Thompson Hine’s Atlanta office in recent months. In May, well-known trial lawyer Marla Butler joined the Business Litigation practice group and earlier this year partners John Wymer and Bryan Stillwagon joined the Labor & Employment practice.
