Client Comments

"Mark Liscio is one of the premier creditor rights restructuring attorneys in the business. What sets him apart is his business acumen combined with his outstanding legal skills. In addition, he has a natural ability to help the negotiation get to a resolution. Mark does all this in a calm constructive way."

"Mark Liscio is analytic, a pleasure to work with, and has a talent which includes a firm grasp of the issues. He assembles the best team within his firm for the circumstances, handles a bank group beautifully, which is not always easy, and has an easy but firm approach to the situation. He has definitely been responsible for better outcomes for the banks and in turn for the companies we deal with. There are very few attorneys in the banking field, especially dealing with troubled situations, which can bring a disjointed bank group together, be firm with the debtor and their counsel in order to achieve a better structure, and do it in a way that is congenial yet firm."

"Mark Liscio has strong interpersonal skills and provides excellent representation for his clients. He is a great communicator and evaluator of issues and achieves the best results for his client. His clients and adversaries respect him for his approach and skills in resolving issues. He obtains great results for his clients. I would strongly recommend Mark for representation of others."

"Mark if of the highest integrity and always puts the client first."
