Risa Wolf-Smith Selected as American College of Bankruptcy Fellow

The American College of Bankruptcy announced on Oct. 15 that Holland & Hart partner Risa Wolf-Smith will be inducted as a Fellow of the College on March 18, 2016, in Washington, D.C.

Wolf-Smith is one of 31 nominees in the 27th Class (2016) of College Fellows. Fellows are selected on an invitation-only basis, by proving a record of achievement, demonstrating the highest standard of professionalism, and displaying leadership in contributing to the enhancement of bankruptcy and insolvency processes.

Wolf-Smith is recognized as one of the leading bankruptcy practitioners in the Mountain West. She chaired Holland & Hart's Bankruptcy and Creditors' Rights Practice Group for over 17 years. For more than 25 years, she has focused on bankruptcy, business reorganization, business workouts, receiverships, and creditors' rights.

“Risa is among the top lawyers in the area of bankruptcy and is very deserving of this honor. On behalf of the firm, I extend our congratulations,” said Mona Burton, 21st Class (2010) of College Fellows, and leader of Holland & Hart’s Real Estate, Construction, Finance and Bankruptcy group.

The College has over 800 Fellows, each selected by a Board of Regents from among recommendations of the Circuit Admissions Council in each federal judicial circuit and specially appointed Committees for Judicial and International Fellows. The College plays an important role in sustaining professional excellence and supports educational and pro bono efforts in local communities around the country.
