Venable taps Bouyea to co-lead growing bankruptcy arm

Katie Tabeling


WILMINGTON — Venable LLP, a national law firm that is a leader in corporate law and intellectual property litigation, has named partner Laura S. Bouyea to co-lead the firm’s growing bankruptcy and creditors’ rights group.

Bouyea has years of experience in bankruptcy matters, commercial litigation, and commercial foreclosures, and her background in accounting makes her what the firm calls the “go-to counsel” on insolvency, loan enforcement, and loan workout matters.

Bouyea will work with Glenn Moses, Miami Venable partner, and the firm’s Bankruptcy & Creditors’ Rights Group chair Gregory Cross to continue to serve debtors and creditors. Moses has also been named as a co-lead for the bankruptcy and creditors’ rights group. The U.S. Bankruptcy Court and District Court located in downtown Wilmington is among the busiest in the nation, as the state handled around 30 cases involving $100 million in assets and 1,000 or more creditors in 2022 alone.

“Our  bankruptcy and creditors’ rights team has recently added top talent and expanded its expertise,” Bouyea said. “I am delighted to take on this new role at a terrific time for our group as we are poised to build on the outstanding value and breath of services we provide our clients.”

Licensed in both Maryland and Delaware, Bouyea has appeared regularly in state and federal court in those and numerous other jurisdictions. She has also represented clients in a variety of sectors and industries, including real estate, retail, government, healthcare, and manufacturing. With an accounting degree from the University of Richmond and years of experience find her uniquely positioned to handle matters in restructuring of businesses.

Venable LLP is a Washington D.C. area firm with a national footprint that boasts of a worldwide clientele of large and mid-sized organizations, nonprofits, entrepreneurs and more. With more than 900 attorneys and professionals across the country, the firm opened a Wilmington office in 2013 to tap into bankruptcy cases.

Today, Venable has three attorneys at its Wilmington office, all associated with the bankruptcy and creditors’ rights group.

“Laura and Glenn are highly respected by their clients and colleagues for their legal expertise and strategic and collaborative approach,” Cross said. “I look forward to working with them in their new roles to build on our track record of success for our clients and to continue to develop and expand our team.”
