A retired U.S. Bankruptcy Judge for the District of New Jersey, Raymond T. Lyons joined Fox Rothschild in July 2013. With more than a decade of judicial service, he brings a wealth of experience to the firm’s national Financial Restructuring & Bankruptcy Department. Notably, Ray presided over Zais Investment Grade Limited VII, an involuntary Chapter 11 case against a Cayman Islands entity that issued and invested in collateralized debt obligations. He served as visiting bankruptcy judge in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware where he presided over the Chapter 11 case of Montgomery Ward and the Chapter 11 case of Federal Mogul filed by more than 130 multinational companies with parallel insolvency proceedings in England involving billions of dollars in asbestos claims.
While on the bench, Ray earned a reputation for helping parties settle their disputes in his cases and for his colleagues in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey. He completed the first bankruptcy mediation training offered by the American Bankruptcy Institute and St. John’s University School of Law. He was an instructor in the inaugural training for mediators offered by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey and received training in arbitration from the American Arbitration Association. Ray has been appointed to the Panel of Mediators for the Bankruptcy Courts in New Jersey, Delaware and the Western District of Pennsylvania, as well as the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.

With the approval of the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, Ray served as mediator for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. Among his most well-known and significant mediations is the Chapter 11 case filed by bank holding company Washington Mutual, Inc. following the largest bank failure in history. The mediation, which was covered by major news outlets across the country, led to a bankruptcy exit plan valued at $7 billion and spawned mediation with additional groups of claimants. Ray was lauded in the official court transcript for his dedication and commitment to achieving a resolution that benefitted all parties involved in the matter.
