For 22 years, Myles Alderman Jr. ran his own Hartford-based firm. Perhaps best known for its bankruptcy work, Alderman & Alderman also focused on commercial litigation, alternative dispute resolution and general business advice.

Now Alderman is making a move to a much larger firm. He’s just been named chair of the Bankruptcy, Creditors’ Rights and Restructuring Practice Group at Halloran & Sage, a firm of about 80 attorneys that ranks in the top 10 in Connecticut in terms of annual revenues. According to a news release, Alderman will continue to focus on business bankruptcies, Chapter 11 reorganizations, creditors’ rights and commercial litigation.

Industries with which Alderman has experience include, construction, design, fashion, manufacturing, distribution, materials handling, retail, aviation and ground transportation. He has represented clients from across the U.S. and Canada, and in the United Kingdom, China and Japan, among other places.

Specifically, the website of his old firm lists as clients major companies such as General Electric, Costco and Chase Bank. He also has “substantial experience resolving disputes on behalf of Subway franchisees,” according to the Halloran & Sage website.

Alderman initially launched his own firm along with his wife, Linda. It grew to include an office in Hartford and a number of other lawyers.

Alderman is a member of the Business Bankruptcy Law Section of the American Bar Association and a member of the Business Bankruptcy Section of the American Bankruptcy Institute. His published works include the bankruptcy law chapter of the “Connecticut Lawyers Deskbook,” published by the Connecticut Bar Association, and and “Chapter 11 Business Reorganizations: For Business Leaders, Accountants And Lawyers,” published by Outskirtspress.
