Listed in Best Lawyers since 2015

Madlyn Gleich Primoff is a partner in Kaye Scholer’s Bankruptcy & Restructuring Department and a member of the Firm’s Executive Committee. She has more than 25 years of experience representing lending groups, global financial institutions, creditors’ committees, private equity funds and hedge funds in out-of-court bankruptcies, workouts and restructurings, pre-arranged Chapter 11 cases, contentious Chapter 11 cases and related litigation matters. Madlyn brings a disciplined and highly intellectual approach to her matters, with a particular focus on energy and infrastructure, consumer products, structured products, project finance, entertainment, media, shipping, and health care (including device manufacturing and distribution).

She has substantial cross-border bankruptcy experience (including Chapter 15 cases and parallel proceedings) and regularly handles the accompanying litigation. In real estate-related bankruptcy and insolvency matters, Madlyn has represented secured lenders, mezzanine lenders, preferred equity holders, developers and funders of Chapter 11 plans.

Madlyn watches evolving trends closely and stays abreast of new structures to provide clients with innovative solutions to complex challenges. For example, in the $450 million U.S. Shipping Chapter 11 cases, where she represented the Administrative Agent on behalf of the syndicate of senior secured lenders, Madlyn implemented a complex warrant structure to address regulatory concerns regarding the lenders’ take-back of equity. This resolved previously untested issues concerning the intersection of the Bankruptcy Code, the UCC and the Jones Act.
