Bill Baldiga joined Brown Rudnick in 1983 upon graduation from Boston College Law School, and has been with that Firm for all 30 years of his practice. Bill practices full time and also manages the Firm's Litigation and Restructuring Department, comprised of more than 100 lawyers in New York, Boston, DC, Orange County and London. His practice has been devoted primarily to insolvency matters, especially the representation of official creditor and equity committees in chapter 11 cases and as debtor's counsel in middle-market public and private companies. Some notable recent cases include the official creditors committee in A123 Systems ( one of the companies that obtained politically charged Deptartment of Energy grants and then failed to become economically viable), the creditors committee in New England Compounding center (the drug compounder responsible for the current epidemic of deaths and meningitis injuries resulting from contaminated injected steroids) and the official equity committee of KIT digital (an international provider of content to mobile devices). Bill looks forward very much to sharing some of his insights and lessons learned from years on the front lines in difficult chapter 11 cases as an integral part of the course. He will be teaching The Life Cycle of a Chapter 11 Restructuring in the spring.
