Colleen Laduzinski is Partner-in-Charge of Jones Day's Boston Office. With two decades of experience at Jones Day in New York prior to Boston, Colleen brings a thoughtful, practical, and commercial approach to her practice as a tax "deal lawyer," known for solving complex tax and structuring issues in distressed transactions, bankruptcies, and restructurings. She is a trusted advisor on the tax aspects of capital markets and financing transactions and provides tax counsel on M&A transactions, private equity deals, and litigation settlements. Colleen has an ability to distill complex tax concepts and communicate clearly with audiences of business decision makers, bankers, and lawyers.

Colleen acts as debtor's bankruptcy tax counsel in groundbreaking chapter 11 cases, such as Peabody Energy, and leads tax representations of creditor groups, including onshore and offshore funds, in significant debt workouts and restructurings. She advises on more than 100 publicly announced deals over any three-year period, including domestic and cross-border issuances of equity, financial instruments, and credit facilities for capital providers and underwriters, such as Citizens and KeyBank, and for multinational corporations, such as Diebold and TransDigm.

Colleen adapts her skill set to changing circumstances and diverse client matters in the face of constantly evolving tax reform and shifting markets. Her significant publications include three Bloomberg BNA Tax Management Portfolios on corporate bankruptcy and financial restructurings. She has been a longtime supporter of Catholic Charities. For five years, Colleen led Jones Day's New Lawyers Group, leading junior lawyers as they determined the best practice area for their careers.
