Robert Eisenbach

Of Counsel

For 30+ years I have been focused on getting results for clients by keeping an eye on the big picture, offering expertise and good judgment and keeping a cool head.

Bob uses his 30+ years of restructuring experience to guide companies and their boards of directors in Chapter 11 and out of court restructurings, help assignees generate value for creditors in assignments for the benefit of creditors (ABCs) and maximize recoveries for creditors’ committees and creditors in a host of restructuring and related matters. Bob has developed a national reputation for helping clients deal with the intersection of intellectual property and bankruptcy law, representing licensors, licensees and others on these complex issues.
