Alexandria, Va. (Oct. 10, 2017)–The American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) has selected Shane G. Ramsey, a partner in Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP’s Nashville office, as a “40 under 40,” which recognizes 40 insolvency professionals under the age of 40 nationwide for their accomplishments and leadership in their communities.
Ramsey is vice chair of the Bankruptcy and Financial Restructuring Practice Group. He regularly represents a variety of entities in bankruptcy reorganizations, liquidation proceedings, and bankruptcy related litigation. He also has experience handling complex civil litigation matters in both courts and alternative dispute resolution settings. He is coordinator of the Reaffirmation Project, which provides free legal counsel to unrepresented debtors seeking to enter into reaffirmation agreements. He has held leadership positions in both the American Bankruptcy Institute and the Turnaround Management Association.
“Each of these 40 young men and women are distinguished by their extraordinary professional accomplishments and leadership in their communities,” said ABI Executive Director Samuel J. Gerdano.
Candidates were chosen from both large and small firms from every region of the country, and represent diverse practice areas such as law, finance, consulting, academia, government, and more, according to the organization. Nominations were submitted earlier this year by candidates themselves or colleagues via the initiative’s website. Nearly 200 candidates were evaluated. Click here for the full methodology.
