Farrell Fritz Welcomes Distressed Investing Attorney Patrick Maschio; Expands Bankruptcy & Restructuring Practice Group Services

Patrick Maschio recently joined the firm’s New York City office as counsel in the Bankruptcy & Restructuring group. Patrick has extensive transactional experience representing hedge funds, banks and broker-dealers involved in the purchase and sale of general unsecured claims against bankrupt companies; the purchase and sale of bank loans under the Loan Syndication & Trading Association (LSTA) and the Loan Market Association (LMA) standards; and the transfer of post-reorganization equities and restricted securities of foreign and domestic companies.


“The addition of Patrick Maschio enables us to provide clients with legal guidance regarding investment options that arise from bankruptcies. While opportunistic, this is a challenging niche that requires in-depth knowledge of the intricacies of bankruptcy law, securities law and distressed bank debt,” said Ted Berkowitz, a partner in the Bankruptcy & Restructuring group. “Patrick has been practicing in that space for nearly ten years.”


Prior to joining Farrell Fritz, Patrick was counsel at Nixon Peabody LLP, and prior to that, an associate at Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP. He earned his Juris Doctor degree from Fordham University School of Law and his Bachelor of Arts degree from Columbia College. From 2002-2004, Patrick’s legal studies included courses overseas in China, the Czech Republic, Mexico and Costa Rica.


Patrick resides in New York, NY.
