Except from The Deal:

Having opened its doors last summer, Chicago law firm Goldstein & McClintock LLLP makes its debut in the league tables as well as on the bankruptcy scene. The founders of the firm, who were previously partners at K&L Gates LLP, formed it with the intent of building the most exclusive restructuring boutique in the nation and to free themselves from large-firm conflicts.Although they started the firm last August, it has already grown to 15 professionals and four offices, including Atlanta and New York. Founding partner Harley Goldstein says, "Our professionals hail from a variety of credentialed, white-shoe backgrounds, including a former U.S. bankruptcy judge and a tenured professor at Northwestern Law School, and have previously held positions at some of the most respected firms in the world, including, among others, Weil, Gotshal & Manges [LLP]; Kirkland & Ellis [LLP]; Jones Day; Sidley Austin [LLP]; and Alston & Bird [LLP]."

Goldstein attributes the firm's increasing caseload, which includes hotel operator Hans Hotel Management Inc. and direct marketer Qualteq Inc., mostly to referrals. "Our work [comprises] a robust mix of representing debtors, creditors and other constituencies," Goldstein says. "Much of our 'meat and potatoes' has been representing middle-market debtors both in workouts of their financial issues and in bankruptcy itself. The industries our attorneys are most active in change cyclically with the economy."

In less than a year, Goldstein & McClintock has established a great reputation and intends to continue to expand its practice, he says. "We continue to explore other geographic markets [that would] establish an appropriate breadth for our national restructuring platform," Goldstein says.
