PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--It is not every day that an esteemed, 121-year-old law firm launches a whole new practice area. But that’s exactly what Hahn & Hahn did today with the launch of a bankruptcy and financial restructuring practice group and the addition of two bankruptcy attorneys.
Dean G. Rallis Jr., a veteran bankruptcy attorney previously with Anglin Flewelling Rasmussen Campbell & Trytten (AFRCT), will head the firm’s new practice. He will be joined by attorney Matthew D. Pham, who was also previously with AFRCT.
“Especially given today’s economic climate, having professionals like Dean and Matthew at the firm provides our clients with a tremendous resource as it relates to financial issues, hardship, restructuring, negotiation and settlement agreements, as well as strategic acquisitions from distressed businesses,” said Hahn & Hahn Managing Partner Christianne Kerns. “We are excited for the additional expertise they bring to our firm.”
Prior to practicing at AFRCT, Mr. Rallis was a Partner at Alston & Bird. He earned his bachelor’s degree cum laude at the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business and his J.D. from USC’s Gould School of Law. He specializes in business reorganization, corporate insolvency, commercial and bankruptcy litigation, commercial transactions, and the acquisition of assets and businesses in bankruptcy court and out-of-court workouts.
Mr. Rallis has functioned as lead counsel for secured creditors, debtors, creditors’ committees, purchasers, trade creditors and shopping center landlords in the bankruptcy, restructuring and liquidation of companies, and has extensive experience in real estate, business and commercial transactions and workouts in the manufacturing, retail, healthcare and transportation industries.
Mr. Rallis’s younger counterpart, Mr. Pham, earned his bachelor’s degree summa cum laude at Santa Clara University and his J.D. cum laude from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in 2011 and clerked for four bankruptcy judges prior to entering private practice.
