Dan Fliman is a partner in the Financial Restructuring group at Paul Hastings and is based in the firm’s New York office. 

Mr. Fliman has nearly two decades of experience working on high-profile restructurings and related litigations. He most often represents creditors, committees, debtors, shareholders, sponsors, and fiduciaries looking to mitigate exposure, or maximize recoveries, in contentious contexts.
