I am a bankruptcy, restructuring, litigation and renewable energy lawyer. I have over 20 years of experience in the restructuring field involving many of the largest and most complicated business reorganizations, out-of-court restructuring matters, workouts, liquidations and distressed acquisitions and sales in Delaware’s state and federal courts, as well as in other jurisdictions across the country.
I also have wide-ranging commercial transactions and other transactional experience, representing clients as in-house counsel, as well as a private practitioner. From 2005 to early 2009, I served as General Counsel of NextEra Energy Resources LLC, a clean energy leader and one of the largest competitive energy suppliers in North America. At NextEra, I oversaw all legal aspects relating to the company’s activities.
Prior to entering private practice in 1996, I was a member of the corporate legal department for The Columbia Gas System, Inc., where I focused primarily on the bankruptcy proceedings of Columbia and its subsidiary, Columbia Gas Transmission Corporation, until their successful emergence from bankruptcy protection in 1995.
