John B. Hutton III

John B. Hutton III is a bankruptcy litigator, who has spent his entire career with Greenberg Traurig since joining the firm’s bankruptcy group in 1993. He has extensive experience representing debtors, trustees, secured and unsecured creditors, asset purchasers, indenture trustees and bondholders, across various industries, with a particular focus on real estate, hospitality and municipal finance/tax exempt bonds. John focuses on dealing with highly controversial and litigious matters, having litigated issues involving cash collateral, adequate protection, valuation, stay relief, feasibility and plan confirmation treatment. In his early years with the firm, John played a key role in the Southeast Banking Corporation bankruptcy case, one of the largest bank holding companies in Florida, which successfully returned over 100 percent to creditors, along with post-petition interest. He has also had multiple Committee representations, including Mission Health, where the recovery for unsecured creditors was increased from a projected 10 percent to 90 percent. The U.S. Trustee called it the "most aggressive" Committee she had seen in her career. John has extensive experience in handling indenture trustee and bondholder representations involving tax exempt community development district bonds and the issues arising in such cases. Prior to joining the firm, he completed a Federal District Court Judicial Clerkship.
