In the past year alone, Speckhart has been heavily involved in major Chapter 11 cases, including those of Ann Taylor’s parent company, pharmaceutical maker Mallinckrodt Plc and department store Lord & Taylor. She also sits on Cooley’s Women’s Initiative Committee and leads a task force that provides leadership training to the firm’s female lawyers."
