Ravin Joins Saul Ewing’s Newark Office as Partner

Saul Ewing announced that Stephen B. Ravin has joined the firm as a partner in the Bankruptcy and Restructuring Practice. Ravin has more than 30 years of experience as an insolvency and bankruptcy attorney.

Ravin focuses his practice on numerous facets of insolvency and bankruptcy law. He has served as a trustee and has represented trustees, individual and corporate debtors, creditors, creditors’ committees, assignees for the benefit of creditors and receivers.

Ravin has handled a range of insolvency issues, from single debt resolution to large-scale restructurings and liquidation proceedings in Chapter 11 and Chapter 7 cases, in state courts and in out-of-court workouts. He also serves as a fiduciary as an assignee for the benefit of creditors, receiver and liquidating trustee.

“Steve is a nationally known and respected player in the restructuring world and a key restructuring practitioner in New Jersey,” said Jeffrey Hampton, co-chair of the Bankruptcy and Restructuring Practice. “Adding Steve will enable Saul Ewing to reach more clients in New Jersey and New York with legal needs related to restructuring and bankruptcy. His wealth of experience is a valuable resource for the firm and his new partners in the practice.”

Ravin has worked on cases in numerous industries, including retail, health care, manufacturing, chemical and telecom. For him, Saul Ewing was a good fit not only for current clients but new ones he hopes to gain in areas beyond bankruptcy.
