New York, NY (February 23, 2009) — Epstein Becker Green announced today that seven bankruptcy and corporate reorganization lawyers have joined the Firm.

The team, which arrives from Dreier LLP, is led by Paul Traub, former co-chair of the Bankruptcy and Corporate Reorganization Practice at the firm, and includes partners Steven E. Fox, Wendy G. Marcari and Maura I. Russell and Associates Brett J. Nizzo, Anthony B. Stumbo and Bradford Tobin. The group will be based in Epstein Becker Green's New York office.

The bankruptcy team was previously of the New York-based law firm Traub, Bonacquist & Fox, LLP, where Mr. Traub was a founding member and managing partner. Mr. Traub is widely regarded as a leading attorney in insolvency and corporate restructuring, debtor and creditor rights, distressed financings, and bankruptcy-related litigation.

"Epstein Becker Green has a growing and vibrant national Business Law practice that we all were eager to be a part of," said Mr. Traub. "We will have the opportunity to become a major part of the Firm's Bankruptcy and Financial Restructuring practice, at a time when the need for such legal services is tremendous. Moreover, the Firm's Litigation practice and Labor and Employment practice, to name just two, offer an excellent strategic fit for our team."

Epstein Becker Green Managing Director George Sape said the addition of Mr. Traub and his colleagues is the result of the Firm's strategic decision to grow in the area of distressed assets, which is certain to become an increasingly important legal field during the next few years, as well as a commitment to expand more broadly in business law.

"At Epstein Becker Green we believe in the importance of remaining nimble and entrepreneurial in order to seize opportunities when they arise," said Mr. Sape. "By moving quickly to bring on board Paul Traub and his colleagues, we are able to provide even greater resources for our clients in this difficult economic climate."
