Madison Gardiner



Madison Gardiner advises clients facing complex commercial disputes, frequently drawing on her experience with complex corporate restructurings and financial products.

She has represented creditors’ committees and other clients in large Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings, including adversary proceedings. In federal clerkships for the Honorable Dennis Jacobs of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and the Honorable Naomi Reice Buchwald of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, she gained exposure to a wide range of civil and criminal legal issues – and insight into judicial decision-making.

Before joining Holwell Shuster & Goldberg, Madison practiced as a financial restructuring associate at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP in New York. Previously, she worked on financial product analytics at Bloomberg L.P., advising clients on market analytics, asset-backed security structuring, and other issues.
