Tina represents key stakeholders, including creditors' committees, secured and unsecured creditors, indenture trustees, equity holders, commercial landlords, Chapter 7 trustees, and liquidating trustees in all aspects of Chapter 11, Chapter 7, Chapter 15 and cross-border insolvency proceedings.

  • Serving as members of official creditor committees
  • Participating in the negotiation of issuer reorganizations and restructurings
