Mr. Bradley Cosman

Perkins Coie LLP, Phoenix, AZ

BRADLEY is a partner in the firm and distinguishes his legal practice by drawing on his unique financial experience. A Certified Insolvency and Restructuring Advisor (CIRA), he has experience across multiple aspects of corporate restructuring, including legal, accounting, operational, strategic and financial. He represents constituents throughout the capital stack, including debtors, senior and junior secured lenders, unsecured creditors, principals and guarantors. He has particular experience with privately held and middle-market companies, and his client work has involved several hospitals. One of his cases involving a hospital garnered national press coverage and was the impetus for amendments to Arizona statutes regarding medical records.

Bradley is a former corporate turnaround advisor with FTI Consulting and a former chair of the Bankruptcy Section of the State Bar of Arizona, and he has been recognized in Super Lawyers as a “Rising Star.” In addition, he was selected by Arizona's federal judges in 2018 to serve a three-year term as a lawyer representative for the Ninth Circuit, and he was an inaugural member of the Arizona Bankruptcy American Inn of Court.

Bradley is an active member of his firm’s diversity committee and hiring committee, and has been a mentor for several associates. As an attorney in the Southwest, he would like to see an increased increased focus on current issues arising in small to middle-market cases filed outside of New York and Delaware.
