Dennis Jenkins, a financial restructuring lawyer with 20 years of experience, joined global law firm Morrison & Foerster as a partner in its New York–headquartered Business Restructuring & Insolvency Group.

Jenkins comes to the firm from WilmerHale. He is the fourth new business restructuring and insolvency partner to join Morrison & Foerster over the last year, following the arrival of Jonathan Levine in New York, and Peter Declercq and Sonya Van de Graaff in London.

Jenkins has represented ad hoc committees, creditors’ committees, indenture trustees, debtors, and other interested parties corporate and debt restructurings, distressed mergers and acquisitions, and bankruptcy cases. Jenkins has also represented lenders, borrowers, and lessors in connection with debt-financing facilities and transactions.

“I am pleased to welcome Dennis to our growing global restructuring team,” said Brett Miller, managing partner of the New York office and a partner in the Business Restructuring & Insolvency Group. “Dennis is a well-respected bankruptcy and reorganization lawyer with an exceptional reputation. His understanding of complex issues will be invaluable to our clients, particularly at a time of continued global economic uncertainty.”
