Mr. Early joined Early, Lucarelli, Sweeney & Meisenkothen in 1999 after graduating from University of Connecticut School of Law, where he was an associate editor of the Connecticut Journal of International Law. In 1995, Mr. Early graduated from Princeton University, where he played Varsity Ice Hockey for four years and received the Vaughn Cup, a team award for dedication to Princeton Hockey. He is a licensed attorney in New York, Connecticut, the Southern District of New York, and the Eastern District of New York.
Mr. Early concentrates his work in asbestos bankruptcy matters, from overseeing the bankruptcy department to bankruptcy court appearances and issues. He spends considerable time serving on creditors' committees and trust advisory committees in bankruptcy on behalf of the firm’s clients. A few of the cases in which he has worked are: In Re: Metex MFG., et al., Case No. 12-14554 (Bankr. S.D. N.Y.), In Re: Specialty Products Holding Corp., No. 10-11780 (Bankr. D. Del.), In Re: United Gilsonite Laboratories 5:11-bk-02032 (Bankr. M.D. Pa.), In re: Hercules Chemical Company, Inc., Case No. 08-27822 (Bankr. D.N.J.), and In Re: Energy Future Holdings Corp., No. 14-10979 (Bankr. D. Del). The bankruptcy department has collected hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of the firm's clients, and Mr. Early constantly seeks new and creative ways to help asbestos victims receive the compensation they deserve through the convoluted and complicated bankruptcy process. Often times, clients need not even file a lawsuit or undergo a deposition in order to receive substantial compensation.
