Womble Bond Dickinson Partner Morgan Patterson has been named one of the American Bankruptcy Institute’s 40 Under 40 for 2022.  The initiative recognizes 40 top bankruptcy industry professionals under the age of 40.

More than 200 candidates, each with outstanding records of professional achievement and community leadership, were evaluated by members of a 20-person steering committee. The 2022 ABI 40 Under 40 honorees will be recognized at a special ceremony to be held on Dec. 9 at ABI’s 2022 Winter Leadership Conference in La Quinta, Calif.

“The 2022 honorees continually display the acumen, energy and passion in both their careers and communities to demonstrate that they are the future leaders of the insolvency profession,” said ABI Executive Director Amy Quackenboss. “This year’s class, like those in years past, brings together a widely diverse collection of young leaders who we fully expect will propel ABI and the insolvency community forward.”

Patterson’s practice focuses on corporate bankruptcy and creditor’s rights in complex chapter 11 proceedings. She has broad experience representing debtors, creditors’ committees, lenders, bondholders, secured and unsecured creditors, liquidation trustees, landlords, asset-purchasers, and other interested entities in various bankruptcy reorganization and liquidation proceedings. Patterson practices in Womble Bond Dickinson’s Wilmington, Del. office.
