Bill is a member of Clark Hill’s Corporate Restructuring and Bankruptcy Practice Group in its Pittsburgh office.

Bill’s law practice is diverse in nature and regularly encounters matters with crisis and complicated legal and media issues. In just the last three years, Bill has had a direct, and often lead, role in the following representations—the State of Maine to uphold the “public interest” in connection with the Montreal Maine & Atlantic Railway bankruptcy following the catastrophic railway disaster in Canada with over 40 casualties, Detroit Pension Plans in the City of Detroit bankruptcy, the City of Pittsburgh through the Urban Redevelopment Authority with regard to the August Wilson Center receivership, criminal defense counsel to an indicted celebrity and several private equity funds as general counsel with investment strategies focused on distressed asset acquisition.

Bill is a 1998 graduate of the College of Business Administration, where he majored in Finance and was introduced into the Golden Key Society. After earning his degree from Pitt Business, Bill earned his Juris Doctor from Pitt's Law School. In each year since 2010, Bill has been selected for inclusion in the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars Edition—an honor bestowed upon less than 5% of Pennsylvania lawyers. In addition, Martindale-Hubbell has issued Bill an “AV Preeminent” peer review, its highest rating for all attorneys. In 2012, Bill was recognized as the 2012 Pitt Business Outstanding Alumnus Honoree at our Business Alumni Association Awards program. The honor was well-deserved.

Bill works with various local non-profits as a trustee, director and volunteer for special projects. By appointment from Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald, Bill serves as a Commission on the Allegheny County Human Relations Commission.

Bill remains very active at the University of Pittsburgh. He has served as an adjunct professor at Pitt Law since 2012 for the three credit course “Secured Transactions”. Bill is also a frequent guest lecturer at Pitt Business for both the graduate and undergraduate programs. He has also served on the Pitt Business Alumni Board for several years and recently participated in the formation of the CBA Advisory Board to the Pitt Business Alumni Board.

Bill lives in South Fayette with his wife, Amy, and their pride and joy—sons Liam (4) and Evan (3). You’ll often see Bill at Pitt football and basketball games with one of his boys. We are grateful to have Bill with us today. I ask, Bill Price, to please come forward at this time.
