I enjoy the challenge of taking a complicated financial and legal puzzle, filled with competing stakeholders, and fitting the pieces together to achieve the best outcome for my client. But the most rewarding aspect of my job is walking together with a client through the trying process of addressing financial insolvency as a trusted advisor and seeing the client through to new start.

Stephen Grow's practice is concentrated in corporate restructuring and bankruptcy. He has counseled and represented both secured lenders and borrowers in out-of-court workouts, and trustees, debtors, creditors’ committees, secured lenders and other stakeholders in complex bankruptcy cases throughout the U.S.
