Erin Brady

Erin Brady has nearly two decades of experience effectively resolving her clients’ most complex problems with practical business solutions that don’t complicate the issues.

Her practice focuses on complex, time-sensitive challenges inherent in corporate restructurings and liquidations. This successful representation of creditors’ committees, individual creditors, trustees, debtors, and others has helped them realize their business goals when the stakes were high and the outcomes uncertain.

One concentration of Erin’s practice is restructurings in the retail sector. She represented Mattel as the largest unsecured creditor and co-chair of the creditors’ committee in the Toys ‘R’ Us Chapter 11 cases. She represented Fleming Companies in the sale of substantially all of its grocery store distribution business. She also represented American Apparel and its affiliates in its two recent Chapter 11 cases, the first in 2015 and the second in 2016. American Apparel operated a vertically integrated manufacturing, distribution, and retail business focused on branded fashion-basic apparel, employing thousands of employees across multiple manufacturing facilities and hundreds of retail stores in the United States and 17 other countries worldwide.

Finance Monthly recognized Erin as “Finance Lawyer of the Year” in early 2020. She has been recommended in The Legal 500 rankings for corporate restructuring and she was among the Global Restructuring Review‘s “Top 40 Under 40” restructuring lawyers. Law360 recognized her as a Rising Star in 2016, and she has been named a Super Lawyer or Rising Star by Los Angeles Magazine and Super Lawyers for nine of the past 10 years.
