ABI Competition

The Richard Paul Richman Center for Business, Law and Public Policy and the Private Equity Program, hosted the annual Restructuring Case Competition at Columbia Busienss School. Historically, only MBA students competed in the competition.

This was the first year that business school students partnered with law school students in the event. Law students brought valuable perspective to the competition given their understanding of corporate structure and creditor rights, which are crucial considerations in restructuring. Six teams of four students competed in the internal competition. CBS alumni working in restructuring, turnaround consulting and distressed investing came to campus to listen to student presentations and to provide constructive feedback and insights on restructuring space.

The alumni judges included Elisha Tropper ’95, Keith Luh ’03, Fred Steindler ’06, Rob Torti ’07, Erik Ulin ’08, Michael Livanos ’08 and Don Baxter ’09. The winning team, comprised of Michael Henderson-Cohen CBS ’13, Jonathan Lee CBS ’13, Zain Rehman CL’12, and Eli Silverman MBA ’13. The team went on to represent Columbia in the 6th Annual ABI Corporate Competition at The Wharton School.

Featured Speakers
