Kurt Mayr is a nationally respected bankruptcy practitioner whose inventive thinking has driven several pioneering restructurings. Representing creditor groups and other clients in transactions and litigation both in and out of court, Kurt consistently displays the creativity, advocacy, and talent for consensus-building that have resolved multiple landmark restructurings.
Among his notable engagements, Kurt represented creditor groups in the groundbreaking workouts of two tribal-owned casinos. In several matters, he has conceived solutions to previously intractable negotiations, creating a path for other parties to follow. His analysis for a bondholder group helped break a years-long stalemate in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico’s long-running bankruptcy proceedings, and his thinking has been highly influential in helping second lien investors navigate intercreditor agreements and maximize their recoveries.
Kurt represents creditors of all kinds in complex restructurings, including senior bank lenders, ad hoc noteholder groups, and official creditor committees. He also advises investment funds on restructuring and litigation strategies for distressed and special situation opportunities, and debtors in contested and litigated restructuring proceedings.
Before joining Glenn Agre Bergman & Fuentes, Kurt led the bankruptcy practices at Morgan Lewis & Bockius LLP and Bracewell LLP.
