The attorneys in this practice group are experienced in representing secured and unsecured creditors, committees, equity holders, investors and acquirers. The scope of our practice includes mainly counties in Northern Indiana Federal and State courts; however, we have regularly represented clients in the Southern District of Indiana Federal courts as well as venues throughout the country either directly or through our trusted network of local counsel. We also have several Michigan licensed attorneys who can assist with Michigan litigation matters since we are located in a border region.
