Mr. Condon has a wide array of experience in financial transactions and restructuring and insolvency matters after almost two decades of concentrating in the field. His practice focuses on commercial insolvency, reorganization, and related litigation. He represents commercial borrowers and guarantors in all aspects of insolvency, bankruptcy, and restructuring matters including formal in-court proceedings and out-of-court workouts and other restructurings and refinancings.

In those contexts, he has successfully reorganized multiple corporate and individual bankruptcy estates in contested Chapter 11 proceedings and has prosecuted and defended claims on behalf of clients in state and federal trial and appellate courts, including matters involving the avoidance and recovery of fraudulent and preferential transfers, director and officer claims, equitable subordination and recharacterization, substantive consolidation, usury, and consumer protection claims.
Mr. Condon also regularly advises and represents clients in connection with the negotiation, documentation, and consummation of lending transactions, guaranty arrangements, forbearance agreements, and distressed acquisitions and divestitures.
