acquirers of distressed assets, in complex workouts and insolvency matters, with a particular emphasis on major corporate and multinational

toward broadening our practice offerings in the New York region and
deepening our financial restructuring practice,” said Patrick C. Oxford,
managing partner of Bracewell & Giuliani.
“Their arrival highlights our continuing focus on adding top talent in key practice areas throughout the firm. Moreover, this shows that our
client- driven growth strategy in New York continues to be very successful.
The seed we planted two years ago when we opened in New York with Rudy
Giuliani as our new named partner continues to bear substantial fruit,”
said Mr. Oxford.
Bracewell’s latest addition adds to its growing global capabilities.
Mr. Flaschen has been named twice to Euromoney’s list of the Top 25 “Best
of the Best” insolvency lawyers in the world. In addition, he was the only U.S. restructuring lawyer included in Asialaw’s “Leading Lawyers 2006.”
