Blank Rome LLP is pleased to announce that partners Regina Stango Kelbon and Michael B. Schaedle have been named to the 2022 Lawdragon 500 Leading U.S. Bankruptcy & Restructuring Lawyers. The annual list recognizes the nation’s top bankruptcy and restructuring attorneys. 

Lawdragon describes the importance of this list by stating, "The start of the pandemic brought expectations for mountains of commercial bankruptcy work.
