Jones Day partner Genna Ghaul named Rising Star by New York Law Journal
Genna Ghaul, a partner in the Firm's Business Restructuring and Reorganization Practice, is one of the lawyers named by the New York Law Journal as a "Rising Star." The "Rising Stars" award recognizes the New York legal community's emerging leaders.
Ms. Ghaul's recent achievements on behalf of clients include serving as counsel to the agent of a $33 million debtor-in-possession credit facility and stalking horse bidder in connection with a $690 million credit bid for a beauty company, serving as counsel to a global supplier in the automotive and commercial vehicle markets in their Chapter 11 cases involving approximately $400 million of assets, and advising a $700 million floral and gifting company in the sale of their three distinct businesses through a multipronged sale process. Ms. Ghaul represents clients in chapter 11 proceedings, out-of-court restructurings, section 363 sales and other distressed transactions, bankruptcy litigation, and mass tort matters. She has served clients in a variety of industries, including retail, automotive, energy, mining, and telecom.
In the community, Ms. Ghaul is an active member of the Her Justice Junior Advisory Board, an organization that provides free legal services to women living in poverty in New York, raising thousands of dollars to further this mission. She also maintains an active pro bono practice with Her Justice on matters in New York's family courts and immigration matters.
This is the second Rising Star recognition Ms. Ghaul has earned this year. She was among four Jones Day lawyers named "Rising Stars" by Law360 in June.
