Honigman partner Tricia Sherick honored by Crain’s Detroit Business in “40 Under 40”
Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP’s (Honigman) Commercial Law, Bankruptcy and Reorganization Department Partner Tricia Sherick has been named by Crain’s Detroit Business (Crain’s) as one of its 2010 “40 under 40.” For this honor, Crain’s selects people under the age of 40 who “exemplify the brainpower, creativity and business savvy that can rebuild the region.” Sherick is featured in the October 4, 2010 issue of Crain’s and will be recognized at an event, sponsored by Honigman, at the Roostertail in Detroit on Thursday, October 28, 2010.
Sherick concentrates her law practice on representing original equipment manufacturers and tier one suppliers; secured and general creditors in commercial bankruptcy cases; commercial lenders in loan restructuring, analyses of existing loans and negotiating work-outs and wind-downs; and purchasers and sellers of assets in bankruptcies with emphasis on automotive-related transactions.
She was selected for the “40 under 40” for her role in leading the Honigman team as they worked with the General Motors (GM) Purchasing department to establish and operate GM’s supplier response team during its historic bankruptcy last year, allowing the company to maintain product flow from its suppliers throughout the proceedings.
Sherick began her career at Honigman in 1999 after serving as a Law Clerk for Judge Patrick J. Duggan in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. She was recently named the firm’s Recruiting and Attorney Development Partner, giving her responsibility for a wide range of attorney professional development functions for Summer Associates, Associates and Nonpercentage Partners. Sherick has been named in The Best Lawyers in America 2011 and in Michigan Super Lawyers 2010 as a “Rising Star.”
She earned a J.D., magna cum laude, from the University of Toledo College of Law and a B.A. in English Literature and Political Science, with honors and high distinction, from Ohio Northern University.
