WILMINGTON, Del. (April 8, 2019) — Potter Anderson & Corroon LLP today announced the addition of Christopher M. Samis and L. Katherine Good as partners in the bankruptcy and restructuring practice. Aaron H. Stulman also joins the firm as an associate. Samis, Good and Stulman join Potter Anderson from Whiteford, Taylor & Preston.

“Bolstering our bankruptcy practice is a long-term strategic priority,” said Potter Anderson Chair Kathleen Furey McDonough. “The team has an outstanding reputation, strong working relationships with co-counsel, and tremendous potential to expand their practices on our platform. I am thrilled to welcome them to the firm.”

Named as leading Delaware bankruptcy lawyers by Chambers USA and recognized on Benchmark Litigation’s “40 & Under Hot List,” Samis and Good have represented debtors, committees, lenders, purchasers, and significant creditors before the Delaware bankruptcy courts for over 12 years.

“I’m delighted to be joining Potter Anderson,” said Samis. “It will be a great opportunity to work with a firm looking to further diversify its broad practice portfolio with additional investments in bankruptcy. My clients are gaining access to a deep bench of go-to Delaware lawyers, and I’m looking forward to building a market-leading bankruptcy practice at one of the most highly regarded Delaware firms.”

Good, who is currently chair of the Delaware State Bar Association’s Bankruptcy Law Section, said, “Joining Potter Anderson is an ideal fit for my clients and career, due to its impressively strong Delaware‑focused platform. Given the firm’s excellent reputation and position in the market, I know my practice will thrive.”

David E. Moore, chair of Potter Anderson’s litigation group, added, “Bringing these three lawyers on board is a tremendous boost to our bankruptcy practice and our overall litigation team. They will play a key part in our plan to expand practices with a Delaware advantage.”

“Chris and Katie have long been known as ‘ones to watch’ in the Delaware bankruptcy bar,” said Jeremy W. Ryan, Potter Anderson bankruptcy partner and immediate past chair of the Delaware State Bar Association's Bankruptcy Law Section. “They have what clients want — top-notch substantive knowledge with a practical, service-oriented approach. I’m looking forward to having them join our team.”
