June 21, 2013

Boston – June 19, 2013 – Murphy & King, P.C. announced today that for the 7th consecutive year, it has received high accolades from Chambers and Partners USA for the firm’s consistent success and expertise in bankruptcy litigation. The recognition cites the firm’s experience working in a wide range of industries and its ability to take on tough cases with a track record of producing desired outcomes.

Murphy & King ranked in the Top Tier for its Bankruptcy and Restructuring practice, joining three of the largest law firms in Boston. Chambers recognized Murphy & King for having “the best insolvency lawyers in the city,” and further praising the firm for maintaining its “dominant position” in a highly competitive market. Chambers highlighted the firm’s “competitive rates and outstanding client service, with a well-developed geographical reach which extends beyond the confines of New England into the New York and Delaware markets.” Harold B. Murphy, partner and director of the firm’s Bankruptcy and Financial Restructuring practice, was cited as ”an undisputed champion of the New England bankruptcy bar.” He was ranked as one of only three “star individuals” in Bankruptcy/Restructuring in Massachusetts. He was also recognized as “a leader for midmarket debtor cases.” Even his competitors are quick to sing his praises, acknowledging his “tremendous” track record, declaring him a “king of this practice.”

“Murphy & King is honored to receive this prestigious recognition,” said Harold B. Murphy, co-founder and shareholder of Murphy & King. “Our bankruptcy practice is second to none as the team is top notch and gets the job done for the client. Our continued success is owed to the rich experience and deep knowledge of our attorneys, whose tireless efforts ensure Murphy & King will remain among the elite bankruptcy litigation firms for years to come.”

Described as tough and experienced, Shareholder Charles Bennett was credited for his skilled work as both an adviser and a litigator, and is “revered” for his work championing the reorganization of a global health club client. Another shareholder in the bankruptcy practice, Ethan Jeffery, was noted as consistently receiving praise as “a gifted attorney for both debtor and creditor representations” following his admirable performance as lead counsel for a major telecoms provider. Andrew Lizotte is held in the same esteem, described as a force in both Chapter 11 work and out-of-court restructurings.
