The International Committee community is continuing to grow! We are excited to introduce and welcome the following new members:

Matthew B. Harvey, Morris Nichols (Wilmington, Del.)

Matt Harvey is a partner in Morris Nichols’ bankruptcy and restructuring group, where he focuses on chapter 11 business bankruptcy, bankruptcy litigation, reorganization and restructuring. He represents international, national and regional clients, including debtors, official and ad hoc committees, asset-purchasers, debtor-in-possession (DIP) lenders, secured and unsecured creditors, petitioning creditors in involuntary bankruptcy filings, and other parties in interest. His experience includes in- and out-of-court restructuring transactions for publicly traded and private companies, and he has represented clients in bankruptcy litigation and appeals, as well as commercial litigation. Matt also has substantial experience representing debtors, foreign representatives and others in cross-border cases. Matt devotes a portion of his time to pro bono matters, such as serving as an attorney guardian ad litem in the Family Court for the State of Delaware. He is also a volunteer attorney for the Federal Civil Panel of the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware.


John Troy, Troy Law (Flushing, N.Y.)

John Troy is excited to join the International Committee. Troy Law, PLLC specializes in representing debtors and creditors in bankruptcy proceedings. They have an office in Taipei, Taiwan, and have staff members who are fluent in Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese, Spanish and Hindi.


Marcello Gaboardi, Bocconi University (Milan, Italy)

Marcello Gaboardi has been an associate professor of law at Bocconi University of Milan (Italy) since 2020. He has focused his research on civil litigation, arbitration and insolvency proceedings. In 2019, he spent a semester as visiting researcher at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität of Munich, where he specialized in comparative law with a particular emphasis on collective arbitration and litigation. He holds a Ph.D. in Law from Bocconi University and a Law Degree from the Catholic University of Milan. Marcello was admitted to the bar in Italy in 2009. His research interests lie in the legal analysis of civil litigation and bankruptcy, as well as the theoretical principles of law, which form the common ground of his research. Empirical analysis promotes self-criticism by acting as a braking mechanism that encourages him to be as pragmatic as possible. Marcello’s interests currently focus on the comparative analysis of civil litigation and bankruptcy, but he also devotes significant attention to the impact of implementing the EU insolvency law within the Italian and European legal system.
