WILMINGTON, Del.—May 22, 2015 – Bayard, P.A., a Meritas® member law firm based in Wilmington, Delaware, announced today that Chambers and Partners has ranked seven Bayard lawyers as “Leaders in their Field” in Chambers USA 2015.

Neil regularly represents debtors, official committees of unsecured creditors or equity holders, secured lenders, banks and insurance companies, financial institutions and publicly and privately held businesses in large bankruptcy cases and other insolvency proceedings including insurance company insolvencies. He has been recognized as a leading lawyer in bankruptcy/restructuring by Chambers USA each year since 2006.

Charlene D. Davis is a director at Bayard. She focuses her practice on corporate bankruptcy and commercial litigation.
