WASHINGTON, DC, August 17, 2020 - Eric Goodman has joined Brown Rudnick LLP as a partner in its Bankruptcy & Corporate Restructuring Practice Group. Goodman was formerly a partner at Baker & Hostetler.
Goodman's practice includes the representation of creditors’ committees, national and international companies, federal banking regulators, debtors, and creditors in larger chapter 11 cases, out-of-court restructurings, cross-border insolvencies, and bankruptcy-related acquisitions. He has significant litigation experience and has performed substantial work with respect to matters involving insolvent financial institutions, mass tort bankruptcies, distressed automotive suppliers, intellectual property rights in bankruptcy, and the oil and gas industry.
“We are thrilled that Eric Goodman will be joining Brown Rudnick; he is a key addition to the firm’s remarkable and uniquely experienced Bankruptcy & Corporate Restructuring team,” said Sunni Beville, Managing Director of Brown Rudnick’s Dispute Resolution & Restructuring Department. “Eric brings an even more depth to the bankruptcy group, having worked on complex matters spanning a multitude of industries.”
Goodman's recent representations include:
- Lead global counsel to AB Volvo, PSA Automobiles and Opel Automobile in the highly complex global restructuring of Takata Corporation and its affiliates.
- Representation of the Official Committee of Tort Claimants of PG&E Corporation and its regulated utility subsidiary Pacific Gas and Electric Company in connection with the approval of PG&E’s $59 billion reorganization plan.

(FDIC) in highly complex litigation against JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., BMO Harris Bank, N.A., FBOP Corporation, and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation involving fraudulent transfer claims and claims regarding the ownership of a $265 million consolidated federal income tax refund.
“I was immediately attracted to Brown Rudnick’s easy and seamless working style, and I knew that it is a place where I would naturally thrive,” said Goodman. “The reputation the firm has for working on some of the most complex and unique restructuring cases and offers an exciting opportunity to grow my practice among a team of tenacious, multi-disciplinary individuals.”
Prior to joining private practice, Goodman clerked for Chief Bankruptcy Judge William T. Bodoh of the United States Bankruptcy Court in Ohio.
