Press Release
April 14, 2014

MIAMI, FL – Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod announced today that Restructuring & Bankruptcy partner Jeffrey I. Snyder was honored as a top Bankruptcy attorney under 40 by legal publication Law360.

Law360's '2014 Rising Stars' lists 163 attorneys under 40 whose legal accomplishments belie their age. Editors considered more than 1,000 nominees across 28 different practice areas, and Jeffrey was one of only eight bankruptcy attorneys nationwide. The winners will be profiled in Law360 in the weeks ahead.

"Whether winding down a managed care provider in receivership or successfully defending a nightclub operator from a $5 million clawback lawsuit, Jeffrey Snyder has shown himself a dab hand at insolvency issues, earning the Bilzin Sumberg Baena Price & Axelrod LLP partner a place among eight young bankruptcy attorneys recognized by Law360," said Jamie Santo, an editor at Law360's New York office.

Recently promoted to Partner in the firm's Restructuring & Bankruptcy Practice Group, Jeffrey represents all constituencies in complex bankruptcy proceedings and out-of-court workouts. He often represents borrowers, issuers and lenders in connection with commercial loan transactions and capital market transactions.

Some of Jeffrey's recent matters include:

  • Served as counsel to a nightclub operator, obtaining dismissal of a $5.2 million clawback suit brought in connection with the fallout of the Kenneth Ira Starr Ponzi scheme.
  • Served as counsel to Ronald Winters, as receiver for Medical Development International, LTD., Inc., in the aftermath of the company's $30+ million foreclosure and subsequent liquidation.
  • Served as counsel to the successful purchaser of a shopping center in the Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding of Ocala Shoppes, LLC.

"Jeffrey is an exceptional attorney," said Scott Baena, Chair of the Restructuring & Bankruptcy Group. "His impressive career accomplishments and well-rounded knowledge of sophisticated restructuring and finance issues is an asset to our practice and our clients."

Consistently recognized both locally and nationally for his professional accomplishments and expertise, Jeffrey has also been recognized as a "Rising Star" by Florida Super Lawyers for four consecutive years, and in 2013, he was named a "40 Under 40 Outstanding Lawyer of Miami-Dade County" by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
