Craig Goldblatt is a partner in the firm's Litigation/Controversy Department, and the Bankruptcy and Financial Restructuring Practice Group. His practice focuses on bankruptcy-related litigation and appeals. Mr. Goldblatt, who joined the firm in 1994, is also a member of the firm's Management Committee.
Mr. Goldblatt represents parties in all stages of bankruptcy proceedings. The core of his practice involves bankruptcy and insolvency related trial-level matters and appeals—particularly the representation of financial institutions and other commercial creditors in bankruptcy litigation. He has argued two bankruptcy cases before the Supreme Court of the United States, and one before the en banc Third Circuit, prevailing in all three. He has also been involved in a range of civil litigation matters outside of bankruptcy, with an emphasis on complex commercial disputes and appellate litigation.
Outside of his bankruptcy practice, Mr. Goldblatt participated in WilmerHale's representation of the University of Michigan, from the district court to the Supreme Court, in Grutter v. Bollinger, 539 US 306 (2003). The Supreme Court's decision in that case held that institutions of higher education may consider race as a factor in admissions decisions. He has also represented an array of pro bono clients in civil rights, criminal and constitutional litigation.
