ADMINISTRIVIA: Yahoo message was approved but …

2014-Mar-30

I entered the weekly ezine in the Yahoo group, approved it, and went to bed. 

Today, MAILCHIMP has delivered, but Yahoo has not. (I have to email address of mine enrolled and received nothing.]

I think the Yahoo service is just very slow. YMMV!

The issue is available at http://www.jasperjottings.com/

I advise folks to move over to the MAILCHIMP list.

JNEWS: Biggar, Barry [MC1974] McGuireWoods Partner Debt Finance

2014-Mar-17

Barry Biggar Joins McGuireWoods’ New York Office as Partner in Debt Finance Department
March 14, 2014

McGuireWoods LLP is pleased to announce that Barry Biggar is joining the firm as a partner in its New York office within the Debt Finance Department, bringing particularly deep experience to McGuireWoods’ capabilities in its airline finance practice.

His work representing major global air carriers has twice been recognized as the Airfinance Journal’s Deal of the Year. He represented significant creditors in the United Airlines and Northwest Airlines bankruptcy cases. Airfinance Journal also identified him as one of the top aviation lawyers in North America.

“Barry is a strong addition to McGuireWoods’ capabilities not only for our New York office, but particularly for our work in the competitive and growing area of debt finance. His arrival is more good news for McGuireWoods clients,” said Philip Goldstein, managing partner of the firm’s New York office.

Biggar comes to McGuireWoods after six years with the finance practice group of King & Spalding LLP in New York.

Biggar, a 1974 graduate of Manhattan College and a cum laude graduate of the Pace University School of Law, has been practicing law for 25 years, much of it in aircraft and airline financing transactions.

“Barry brings a wealth of experience in equipment finance in general and specifically in the area of aircraft finance. Together with a core group in Charlotte and an experienced partner in our London office, we can now offer our financial clients a deep aircraft finance team,” said Robert W. Cramer, a partner in McGuireWoods’ Charlotte, N.C., office and the chairman of the firm’s debt finance practice.

*** begin quote ***

The first time I dropped out of college was somewhere in the winter months of 1994. I can’t remember the exact date. There was no Damascus moment where I woke up and decided college wasn’t for me, it just kind of happened over a period of weeks, until the point where my mother would have a series of conversations with me, usually while I was watching Countdown or some other day time TV; her voice over my shoulder said something like, if I didn’t want to go to college that was fine, but I needed to at least get a decent job.

The second time I dropped out of college I remember precisely. It was January 2000, I was on scholarship on the MBA program at Colorado State University. I had completed my undergraduate degree at Manhattan College in New York and still had a year of eligibility to use under NCAA guidelines. I had carefully evaluated the top athletic programs in the US and decided Colorado was the place for me to try and pursue what by then had developed into a dream of Olympic greatness.
