I am an experienced bankruptcy practitioner, transactional/corporate lawyer and commercial litigator. After twenty years with a large law firm, I decided to leave "Big Law" and establish my own law firm. I can now provide the benefit of my experience to my clients at lower rates and without the worry of having conflicts with other parties.
I focus my practice in the areas of bankruptcy and corporate restructuring, advising corporate clients with respect to their businesses while also maintaining a general commercial litigation practice. For over twenty years, I was a partner in an Am Law 100 firm.
With respect to bankruptcy and restructuring, I have extensive experience representing debtors, creditors, creditors’ committees, trustees and examiners in complex Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Cases and in pre- bankruptcy workouts. I regularly represent court appointed fiduciaries in SEC and CFTC enforcement actions. I have also represented borrowers and guarantors as well as financial institutions and secured creditors in state court enforcement actions, including actions to appoint receivers for commercial real estate and foreclosure actions.
In addition to my bankruptcy practice, I regularly advise businesses and business owners with respect to the myriad of issues confronting business owners in today's world and assist in the formation and structuring of new businesses.
Finally, I have experience handling commercial litigation matters, including trials, arbitrations and appeals in a wide variety of complex matters. Most recently, I have handled disputes regarding real estate, breach of contract, business torts, and corporate governance. I have particular experience litigating disputes regarding governance and control of limited liability companies; disputes regarding enforcement of lien rights; and extraordinary remedies including temporary restraining orders, preliminary and permanent injunctions and declaratory relief.
I have been recognized by Chambers USA as one of Georgia’s leading lawyers for bankruptcy and restructuring and have been named a Georgia Super Lawyer since 2010 by Atlanta Magazine and Georgia Trend Magazine.
I reside in the Buckhead/Chastain Park area of Atlanta with my wife Anne and have four grown children.
