Former Chief Bankruptcy Judge is Dead

A well-known bankruptcy lawyer who formerly served as chief judge of U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Southern District of New York and handled the ground-breaking bankruptcy of Robert Maxwell, owner of the New York Post, has died.

Tina Brozman, a partner at Bingham McCutchen, died yesterday of complications from ovarian cancer, reports New York Lawyer. She was 54.

A 1976 graduate of Fordham University School of Law, she worked at Anderson Kill & Olick in New York before her appointment to the bankruptcy court in 1985. She became chief judge in 1996, and left the bench in 2000 to join the Bingham firm.

A memorial service for Brozman will be held July 19 at the bankruptcy court. She is survived by her husband, Andrew, a partner at Clifford Chance, and three adult children.
