Monday, October 4, 2010 - 01:00

Gregory D. Ruback, a corporate lawyer with significant experience in leveraged finance, has joined Proskauer's New York office as a partner, further expanding the firm's global finance and transactional capabilities.

Formerly a partner at Mayer Brown, Mr. Ruback has an extensive background representing financial institutions and agents in a broad range of matters, including secured and unsecured credit facilities of all types, public and private debt offerings, project finance, workouts and restructurings, and general corporate issues and transactions. He also brings considerable experience in handling transactions involving loan parties and collateral located in global jurisdictions, including Europe, Latin America and Asia.

Mr. Ruback's move to Proskauer continues the growth of the firm's Corporate Department, particularly its transactional practice. In April, Partner Ron Franklin, who has deep experience in leveraged finance matters, also joined Proskauer from Mayer Brown. And in June, Senior Counsel Daniel Ganitsky joined the firm's Mergers & Acquisitions and Latin America groups from Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom.

Nationally recognized labor and employment lawyer Scott A. Faust has joined Proskauer's Boston office as a partner in the Labor & Employment Law Department, enhancing the firm's labor-management relations and employment law capabilities, and further fueling the department's global expansion.

Prior to joining Proskauer, Mr. Faust was co-chair of the national labor and employment practice at McDermott Will & Emery LLP, where he represented employers in all aspects of traditional labor relations. He also advises clients in connection with the labor and employment aspects of corporate transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, facility shutdowns and dispositions, reductions in force, Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings and other forms of corporate restructuring.

He is the latest addition to Proskauer's Labor & Employment Department, which, in recent months, welcomed former National Labor Relations Board General Counsel Ronald Meisburg, who practices in Washington, DC, and former Metropolitan Transit Authority Chief Labor Negotiator and executive Gary Dellaverson in New York.
