Michael Riordan focuses on complex Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganizations and liquidations for clients in a wide range of industry sectors, including upstream oil and gas, energy, telecommunications and insurance. He represents a mix of creditors and debtors in Texas and elsewhere, and counsels clients on out-of-court workouts, turnarounds, the acquisition and sale of distressed assets, and bankruptcy-related litigation and litigation avoidance.

Mike has earned a reputation as one who is highly responsive and forthright. Prior to joining Gardere, he worked as an associate for an international firm and as a law clerk for the Honorable Jeff Bohm of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas. He also served as a volunteer prosecutor for the Houston Volunteer Prosecutor Program, where he prosecuted six misdemeanor jury trials, including witness preparation, voir dire, direct and cross-examination, evidentiary motions and closing arguments.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
