Prior to joining Weil, Mr. Song served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Robert D. Drain, of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York.
Mr. Song received his J.D. from Cornell Law School, where he was a managing editor of the International Law Journal. He received his B.A. from American University.
Mr. Song has played a role on a number of teams advising:
- VIVUS, Inc., a specialty pharmaceutical company with three approved therapies and one product candidate in clinical development, and its debtor-affiliates in their chapter 11 restructuring addressing more than $230 million of funded debt. VIVUS’ restructuring involves, among other things, an innovative go-forward royalty structure between the reorganized company and pre-reorganization shareholders to address the highly speculative nature of value inherent to developmental drugs.
- J.Crew Group, Inc. and its debtor-affiliates, one of the nation’s premier clothing retailers with approximately $2 billion in funded debt and 13,000 employees, in their pre-arranged chapter 11 cases.
