“Kasowitz is committed to providing its clients with top restructuring professionals and insolvency litigators to resolve complex issues in a creative and efficient manner. Kyung brings depth in the important Southwest region, multiple industries, and adds great strength to our restructuring team overall.” said David Rosner, Chair of Kasowitz’s Bankruptcy and Restructuring Litigation department. “Kyung will be an invaluable asset to our group and our firm.”
