About me

Adam D. Herring’s practice is centered on litigation of complex bankruptcy-related issues. He focuses his practice on representation of businesses and individuals as debtors in Chapter 11Chapter 7, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases; representation of institutional, corporate, and individual creditors in bankruptcy cases; and representation of debtors, creditors, and third parties in bankruptcy adversary proceedings concerning avoidance of fraudulent or preferential transfers, objections to discharge and dischargeability of debt, and turnover of bankruptcy estate property, as well as other matters.

Adam’s bankruptcy and litigation background includes the following experience:

  • First chair trial counsel for third-party defendants in litigation by a bankruptcy trustee seeking to avoid over ten million dollars in allegedly fraudulent transfers.

  • Lead counsel in multiple cases, including through trial, for both defendants and plaintiffs in adversary proceedings objecting to dischargeability of debt under Section 523 of the Bankruptcy Code and objecting to discharge under Section 727 of the Bankruptcy Code.

  • Representation of small businesses and individuals as debtors in Chapter 11 reorganization cases.

  • Representation of local financial institutions and other parties as creditors in Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases through plan negotiation and confirmation and in obtaining relief from stay.

  • Representation of multiple claimants in large Chapter 11 liquidations arising from mass product liability claims.

  • Counsel to defendants against fraudulent and preferential transfer claims brought by bankruptcy trustees through pleading, discovery and settlement.

  • Counsel for an Atlanta corporation in an unusual involuntary bankruptcy proceeding, through trial and appeal.
