DLA Piper bolsters Restructuring practice with addition of Eric Goldberg in Los Angeles

April 15, 2015 – DLA Piper announced today that Eric Goldberg has joined the firm’s Restructuring practice as a partner in the Los Angeles office.

 

Goldberg represents debtors both in and out of court, as well as creditors and other stakeholders, including lenders and funds, in a variety of transactions. His practice involves complex bankruptcy-related litigation, including contested confirmations, adversary proceedings, and working with hedge funds, bondholders and buyers of distressed assets.

 

“Eric has deep relationships with a number of lenders and investors, as well as funds that are active in distressed markets across the country,” said Gregg Galardi, co-chair of DLA Piper’s global and US Restructuring practices. “He will be instrumental in helping clients avoid pitfalls when buying distressed companies or their assets, as well as handling bankruptcy litigation and out-of-court restructurings.”

 

Goldberg is the firm’s most recent addition in Los Angeles, following on the heels of litigation partners Mike Piazza, Linda Smith and Mark Riera, and employment partner Phyllis Cheng.

 

“We have experienced significant growth in Los Angeles in recent months, and the addition of Eric will complement our increasing capabilities and further strengthen our strategic practice areas in Southern California,” said Perrie Weiner, international co-chair of DLA Piper’s Securities Litigation practice and co-managing partner of the firm’s Los Angeles offices.

 

Goldberg joins DLA Piper from Gordon Silver, and was previously a senior partner with Los Angeles-based bankruptcy boutique Stutman, Treister & Glatt. He received his J.D. from Harvard Law School and his B.S. from Cornell University.
