David Wender Elected Fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy

David Wender, a partner in Alston & Bird’s Financial Restructuring & Reorganization Group, has been elected a Fellow of the American College of Bankruptcy (ACB), a U.S. honorary public service association that recognizes bankruptcy professionals for their excellence and contributions to the fields of bankruptcy and insolvency.

With his election, Wender joins the ACB’s 33rd Class of Fellows, which will be inducted at the organization’s annual meeting in April 2022 in Denver, CO.

Wender counsels clients in complex bankruptcy cases and distressed circumstances, including out-of-court workouts, debt restructurings, asset dispositions, and claims reconciliation procedures. He represents purchasers, sellers, and other parties in bankruptcy Section 363 sales, debtors in possession, secured and unsecured creditors, and creditor’s committees. His clients also include financial institutions, officers, directors, and other entities, which he represents in litigation and transactional engagements in state and federal courts throughout the U.S. 

In 2021, Wender was recognized as an “Acritas Star” by legal research firm Acritas, a Thomson Reuters company, based on nominations and interviews with client general counsel. In 2019, he was named a “Client Service All-Star” by the BTI Consulting Group in its annual survey of the nation’s top lawyers as identified by client corporate counsel.

Organized in 1989, the ACB funds projects that improve the quality of bankruptcy law and practice, as well as access to justice. Together with its affiliated Foundation, ACB is the largest nongovernmental financial supporter of bankruptcy and insolvency-related pro bono legal service programs in the United States. ACB also utilizes its resources and the talents of its Fellows to further professional education about bankruptcy and insolvency law and practice.
