— The M&A Advisor 2014

Weil Restructuring partner Garrett Fail was named among the winners of the The M&A Advisor's 2014 40 Under 40 Recognition Awards. The awards recognize attorneys under the age of 40 for their accomplishments in the M&A, financing and turnaround fields, and aim to promote mentorship and professional development among emerging business leaders. The winners were chosen for their accomplishments and contribution from a pool of prominent nominees by an independent judging panel of distinguished business leaders.

Mr. Fail has been instrumental in negotiating and structuring major sales, global settlements and a complex plan for Lehman Brothers Holdings, including an innovative sale of certain of Lehman’s $14 billion intercompany claims in the first ever “Dutch” auction of a bankruptcy claim and a subsequent series of private placement sales of $7 billion. Other recent clients include Southern Air Holdings, Galvex Holdings, The New York Racing Association, Parmalat USA Corp. and Twinlab Corporation. 

The M&A Advisor's 2014 40 Under 40 Recognition Awards will be presented on June 24, 2014 at an awards gala at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan.
