I have developed my practice over the past three decades, focusing primarily on bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings. I often represent individuals and small businesses, secured and unsecured creditors, committees of creditors, trustees and equity security holders in bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings as well as financial institutions and other lenders in out-of-court loan restructurings, assignments for the benefit of creditors, foreclosures, repossessions, and the sale of distressed assets and businesses. I also have experience representing business debtors in workout, restructuring and bankruptcy matters.
I have extensive experience in all facets of cross border insolvencies and cross border insolvency litigation. I am regularly engaged by private equity firms, governmental agencies and estate representatives to advise and counsel them on a wide range of cross border insolvency issues, with particular emphasis on United States/Western Europe jurisdictions.
Over the years I have cultivated extensive knowledge and skill in commercial and complex business litigation including veil piercings, corporate officer and director liability, successor liability, fraudulent conveyance and transfer litigation and constructive trust litigation. I have experience counseling clients on distressed M&A transactions, corporate governance issues and complex business restructurings. I also have significant experience representing financial institutions in workouts and foreclosures of aircraft and related international equipment and have repossessed aircrafts in various states throughout the United States.
