Erin has extensive experience across the spectrum of transactional and litigation matters facing clients in complex distressed situations. She has advised private equity sponsors, management teams, and boards of directors of financially distressed public and private companies as well as purchasers, new investors, and creditors of distressed companies in complex corporate reorganizations, distressed M&A and finance transactions, and litigation in state, bankruptcy, and appellate courts.  Erin’s broad-based knowledge and experience across key global market centers allow her to effectively represent clients through constantly-changing, multifaceted, and interrelated aspects of a distress situation.
