Katten Muchin’s Tecklin joins Glenn Agre

Glenn Agre Bergman & Fuentes LLP has brought Stacy Tecklin on board as a partner, and she will lead the firm’s new Distressed Debt & Claims Trading practice out of its New York office.

Tecklin has been special counsel at Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP for more than four years.

She has maintained a complex distressed-debt practice, representing the buyers and sellers in a wide range of special situation investments, including syndicated par and distressed loans, bankruptcy claims, and port-reorganization proceedings. 

Tecklin analyzes credit agreements, trading and collateral issues, and bankruptcy case and claim information for the clients she advises and consults on the applicability of restructuring support and forbearance agreements and the transferability of post-reorganization assets.

In the statement, Tecklin said, “While Glenn Agre is still a burgeoning national firm, it’s comprised of a seasoned team of lawyers with a quickly growing reputation as a destination bankruptcy and restructuring practice.” She added that she looks forward to growing her practice at Glenn Agree and providing enhanced service to her clients.”

She is an active member of the Loan Syndication and Trading Association (LSTA) and serves on the LSTA Trade Practices and Forms Committee.

The FinOps Report interviewed Tecklin recently for an article on best practices in the transition from the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) to alternative reference rates (ARRs). She discussed the example of a late dividend payment made by a custodian bank to a fund manager client, an example of LIBOR’s use. Once LIBOR linked contracts are identified, financial firms must be proactive in contacting the counterparties and investors involved to address and remediate, she said.

Glenn Agre Managing Partner Andrew Glenn called Tecklin “a dynamic and talented lawyer with a wide breadth of experience counseling organizations with investments in distressed assets across the country” and said her leadership will allow the firm to provide “a new service to our sophisticated client base.”
