Jeffrey I. Snyder
Jeffrey’s deep knowledge of bankruptcy and debtor credit laws and previous work as a financial analyst bring a wealth of business and legal insight to his practice. He guides landlords, secured and unsecured creditors, bankruptcy trustees, receivers, debtors, asset purchasers and others through a broad range of bankruptcy matters, receivership proceedings and out-of-court restructuring and workouts.
In 2019, Jeffrey was appointed to the Local Rules Advisory Committee established by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida.
Jeffrey also enjoys appellate work, handling chiefly bankruptcy appeals in federal court. He argued in front of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit on behalf of a secured creditor in the Sagamore Hotel bankruptcy case. Jeffrey secured a decisive victory with a reversal in the case.
I handled major aspects of the Sagamore Hotel bankruptcy. We represented a secured creditor and litigated a contested bankruptcy, a contested confirmation, and side litigation over lender liability issues. The case went through bankruptcy court and was appealed at the federal district court and in the Eleventh Circuit, where we secured a reversal in favor of our client. I primarily wrote the briefs and argued the appeal at the Eleventh Circuit. We turned the tide of the case, and eventually secured a favorable settlement.
Prior to law school, Jeffrey was a financial analyst handling primarily venture capital work at a Fortune 5 company.
