Ms. Kimberly Brown

Landis Rath & Cobb LLP, Wilmington, DE

KIM is a senior associate and concentrates her practice in the areas of corporate bankruptcy and restructuring and bankruptcy litigation. She has worked with teams representing chapter 11 debtors, official and unofficial committees, financial institutions, secured lenders and other secured creditors, indenture trustees and bondholders, asset-purchasers, liquidation trusts and other significant creditors, chapter 15 foreign representatives, and other parties in interest in a variety of international and national bankruptcy cases. She represents clients in a wide range of industries, including retail, food and beverage, oil and gas, and manufacturing.  

Prior to her position with the firm, Kim clerked in the Superior Court for the State of Delaware for Hon. Mary M. Johnston and at the Office of Disciplinary Counsel of the Supreme Court of Delaware. She dug into bankruptcy work, despite having no prior bankruptcy experience, when job searches after law school graduation yielded mostly associate positions in restructuring departments. She now pays it forward by serving as the firm’s associate mentor, helping mentees find success and gratification in the restructuring profession and at home.

Kim is the ex-officio chair of the International Women’s Restructuring & Insolvency Confederation’s Delaware Network and served as its past chair, vice chair and social chair. In addition, she mentors law students through the Delaware Law School Alumni Network Mentoring Program and was selected as one of only 40 bankruptcy practitioners to participate in the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges (NCBJ) fifth annual Next Generation Program. She also is a CARE (Credit Abuse Resistance Education) volunteer and teaches basic financial literacy to members of the community.

“Kim is the real deal and a real doer. She demonstrates exceptional leadership; she inspires, motivates and promotes others; and [she] has made a significant and lasting contribution to the restructuring community.”
