Wiley Rein hires Dickstein Shapiro partner in DC
Wiley Rein has strengthened its bankruptcy and financial restructuring practice with the hire of George Pitts, who was formerly a partner at Dickstein Shapiro in Washington.
Pitts’ practice focuses on representing debtors, financial institutions, financing companies, franchisors, creditors’ committees, trustees, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Resolution Trust Corporation.
“George is highly respected and distinguished in the national bankruptcy bar,” said H. Jason Gold, chair of Wiley Rein’s Bankruptcy & Financial Restructuring Practice. “His significant background will complement our core bankruptcy practice, and his broad and deep litigation experience will be of particular value to our team.”
