About Me

I work primarily in the areas of real estate transactions, real estate litigation, bankruptcy/creditor’s rights, general business and healthcare matters. I have significant litigation experience in state, federal, and bankruptcy courts.

I review, negotiate and draft purchase and sale, lease, loan, construction, and other real estate documents. I also counsel and create the appropriate business entities, the drafts of governing and buy-sell documents, and negotiate and structure the general business transactions. My real estate litigation practice has included land contract forfeitures, mortgage foreclosures, landlord-tenant, eviction, guaranty, and construction lien litigation. I regularly represent office and retail landlords both in and out of court. I also handle collections, liquor licensing, out-of-court workouts and restructurings, alter ego/successor corporate liability, shareholder disputes, and dissolution rights matters. I routinely represent shopping center landlords in bankruptcy proceedings around the country related to the assignment and assumption of leases, going out of business sales, the purchase of assets, proof of claim preparation and defense of objections to claims, including administrative expense claims, and the defense of pre-petition preference claims.
