Having been in the turnaround world for nearly 25 years, I have amassed incredible and important relationships, which I continue to build on. My background is diverse, having started my career as a Senior Trial Attorney with the Office of the United States Trustee and now serving as an executive with a major claims administration company. I am based Chicago, IL where we are the only claims administration company that has a major mid west presence. Corporate headquarters are in New York.
In addition, I continue to expand upon my many years of experience as a mediator, well versed in the mediation of a wide rage of complex business issues. My origninal training dates back to 1997 when I participated in the Center for Dispute Resolution’s Mediation Training Program. My most recent training took place in 2011 as a participant in the St. John’s School of Law – American Bankruptcy Institute’s (ABI) inaugural Mediation Training Program. I am now a faculty member of that program serving as a mediatior-coach for the intesive training class. Further, I am one of the founding members of the re-constituted ABI’s Bankruptcy Mediation Committee and was recently appointed to chair the American Bar Association Business Section’s Alternate Dispute Resolution sub-committee.
An expert in many areas involving business, restructuring and economic issues, I write and lecture often and have strong media relationships who frequently call upon me for comment on important issues for both print and broadcast.
I have been an associate editor for the ABI Journal for several years, working with authors who tackle an array of topics that touch on all aspects of the restructuring world.
