Ramlo Joins DLA Piper’s Restructuring Practice


By a MetNews Staff Writer


Former Assistant U.S. Attorney and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom counsel Kurt Ramlo has joined DLA Piper’s restructuring practice as of counsel in its Los Angeles office, the firm said yesterday.

 Ramlo provides restructuring advice to business organizations facing financial distress, the firm said, and his practice includes guiding organizations through out-of-court and Chapter 11 reorganizations, as well as related transactions and litigation.

He routinely provides advice on structuring transactions on behalf of public and private debtors, foreign representatives, shareholders, plan sponsors, third-party acquirers, secured and unsecured creditors, creditors’ committees and postpetition lenders, as well as other restructuring professionals. 

“Kurt is a well respected and highly experienced restructuring lawyer,” H. Jeffrey Schwartz, partner and chair of DLA Piper’s restructuring practice, said. “He will undoubtedly be a valuable asset to our clients and will further strengthen the restructuring capabilities of the firm regionally, nationally and globally.”

 Ramlo is a member of the Turnaround Management Association, the American Bankruptcy Institute and the Los Angeles Bankruptcy Forum.

A graduate of California State University, Northridge and law school at UC Davis, he was admitted to the State Bar in 1993.

Ramlo served as an assistant U.S. Attorney in the Central District of California before joining Skadden Arps, and as an associate at Pillsbury, Madison & Sutro. He is also a former bassoonist with the Pacific Symphony.
