NEW YORK, June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- McGlinchey Stafford PLLC is pleased to announce the addition of accomplished attorney Deborah A. Reperowitz as a Member in the firm's Commercial Litigation practice group and New York City office.
Debbie is a nationally known attorney, representing clients in all aspects of commercial litigation, business restructuring, and bankruptcy matters. She is listed on the register of mediators maintained by the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, and has a robust mediation practice, serving as a mediator in such cases as the Dewey & LeBoeuf bankruptcy and the Madoff liquidations. Debbie is active in industry and community organizations, currently serving as President-Elect and a board member of the New York Chapter of the Turnaround Management Association.
From 2006 to 2010, Debbie served as Senior Vice President and Chief Litigation Counsel at CIT Group Inc., a NYSE financial services company. She established and chaired CIT's litigation and government investigations legal team, managed litigation and pre-litigation matters, handled government inquiries and investigations, reported to the Board of Directors, and assisted with CIT's restructure. Subsequently, Debbie served as General Counsel to Fairholme Capital Management, an investment advisor that had approximately $20 billion under management, including managed accounts and three open-ended, non-diversified mutual funds traded on NASDAQ. She simultaneously served as Secretary to The Fairholme Funds, Inc.
As a senior corporate officer and counsel, Debbie bridged the gap between outside counsel and business leaders. She has developed a unique ability to see the entire picture, enabling her to partner with clients to identify, prioritize, and mitigate risk while problem-solving to meet and exceed client objectives.
"Debbie is a strong addition to McGlinchey Stafford, as she is a talented, respected litigator with broad experience that complements our existing group in New York City, as well as our national commercial litigation and creditors' rights practice groups," said Anthony Rollo, who leads McGlinchey Stafford's nationwide Commercial Litigation section. "She brings valuable in-house experience and a business-minded perspective to every case, and shares our commitment to providing clients with exceptional representation and service as they face challenging and complex business issues."

"The firm provides the perfect platform for the continued growth of my practice. It has embraced the changes in the legal profession, engaged in strategic growth in response to its clients' needs, and has business-minded attorneys practicing nationwide within a structure that allows the delivery of meaningful value to its clients. I look forward to working with multidisciplinary teams across the firm's network of offices to assist clients in resolving disputes, mitigating risk, and achieving their goals."
