I focus my practice on Creditors’ Remedies and Bankruptcy, which includes a variety of distressed financial transactions and litigation matters. In the bankruptcy context, I have extensive experience with novel and complex issues including: first day motions, § 363 asset sales, trustee’s standing for various litigation matters, contested Chapter 11 plan confirmation, substantive consolidation, as well as other issues in litigation arising from a multi-billion dollar Ponzi scheme.
In addition to bankruptcy, I also have experience with foreclosure, receivership, and collection matters in state and federal court on behalf of all types of creditors. I have handled matters including real estate foreclosures for commercial lenders, replevin of personal property, actions to appoint a receiver, foreclosing mechanic’s liens on abandon property, cancelling contracts-for-deed, post-judgment collection and discovery, and due diligence for secured lenders, including perfecting a preferred ships mortgage, among others.
Prior to joining Winthrop, I served for five years as Judicial Clerk to Chief Judge Gregory F. Kishel and Judge William J. Fisher, both of the United States Bankruptcy Court in the District of Minnesota.
