News / October 9, 2017

Associate Camille Bent was selected by the International Women’s Insolvency and Restructuring Confederation (IWIRC) as its 2017 “Rising Star.” IWIRC is the premier international networking and professional growth organization for women in the restructuring and insolvency industry. Bent was selected from a group of five semifinalists from around the world, and was presented with the award during IWIRC’s 24th Annual Fall Conference in Las Vegas on Oct. 8, 2017.

Each year, IWIRC awards the Rising Star accolade to an IWIRC member with eight or fewer years of experience who has made considerable contributions to her professional success and displayed a high level of commitment to advancing IWIRC's mission and enhancing the professional status of women in the insolvency and restructuring profession, at the local, national and/or international levels.

IWIRC noted that Bent made “immeasurable contributions to the IWIRC New York Network, including rebranding the IWIRC New York Network Newsletter and growing its audience.” One of Bent’s nominators described her dedication: “Camille engages fully, actively and passionately in any task she takes on. Her record of involvement with IWIRC beautifully illustrates that aspect of her character.”

Bankruptcy attorneys from across the firm attended the awards ceremony to support Bent, including Bankruptcy Team Leader Elizabeth Green, Partners Ashley McDow and Tiffany Payne Geyer and Associate Michael Sabella.
