Professional Experience
I am a partner in the New York office of Culhane Meadows, practicing primarily in the areas of litigation, finance, bankruptcy, and creditors' rights. My work focuses on diverse interests in federal and bankruptcy court litigation and advice and risk assessment regarding transactional matters, including asset purchases, structured finance transactions, real estate workouts, foreclosures, and purchases and sales of distressed assets. I understand transaction structures and regularly analyzes deal terms. This experience is invaluable because it provides a practical understanding of issues that help shape and develop successful litigation positions and strategies. Simply put, I make deals and, when necessary, know how to litigate to enforce clients' rights. I have been involved in a wide spectrum of transaction and litigation matters, some of which can be described as bet the company matters. These matters include corporate restructuring, bankruptcy and creditors' rights, distressed M&A, asset sales, transactional advisory and risk analysis, commercial litigation and real estate finance. From an industry perspective I have represented entities involved in the following businesses: airlines, chemicals, insurance, defense, drugs, equipment leasing & financing, healthcare, hedge funds, financial services, hospitality, manufacturing, real estate, software, minerals and mining, media and publishing, retail, real estate finance and telecommunications.

ADR Experience
I have acted as counsel in a mediation involving four related single asset (cooperative apartment corporations) Chapter 11 cases that resulted in confirmation of a joint plan of reorganization. I have acted as a mediator or early neutral evaluator in a variety of matters including, but not limited to, insurance subrogation claims, products liability actions, personal injury claims and commercial lease disputes. I am generally familiar with residential judicial real estate foreclosure matters, especially in the context of bankruptcy cases.
