Jason G. Cohen
Jason Cohen’s practice focuses on corporate financial restructuring. Over the last 10 years, Mr. Cohen has represented corporate debtors and senior and junior secured creditors in all phases of corporate debt restructurings, including negotiating out-of-court workouts and litigating in-court chapter 11 bankruptcy cases with assets ranging from $20mm to over $1bln. In such capacity Mr. Cohen has often advised parties on debt and equity financing as well as asset sales. Prior to joining Bracewell, Mr. Cohen served as a law clerk to the Honorable Marvin Isgur of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas.
