Evelyn focuses her practice on distressed M&A, corporate bankruptcy, and creditors’ rights. With more than 20 years of experience, Evelyn understands all facets of a problem or opportunity, strategically devising insightful, innovative, and practical solutions that protect and advance her clients’ interests. She regularly represents sellers and purchasers in distressed M&A transactions including Article 9 sales, asset sales conducted as part of assignments for the benefit of creditors (ABC), and sales conducted pursuant to section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code. Additionally, Evelyn has significant experience guiding corporate debtors, creditors’ committees, secured and unsecured creditors, and others through all aspects of complex Chapter 11 and Chapter 7 proceedings. She also represents companies and assignees in connection with Delaware ABC proceedings in the Delaware Chancery Court. Evelyn’s clients include both plaintiffs and defendants in bankruptcy-related litigation matters including avoidance actions.

What Evelyn most enjoys about her career… I love the challenge of coming up with creative and practical ideas to help my clients solve complex problems. Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to have some amazing mentors and I enjoy getting to mentor younger lawyers to help them succeed in their careers.
