Kristina has a consistent record of success developing and implementing practical solutions to complex and multi-jurisdictional disputes. Over the course of her nearly 30 years in practice, she has handled a broad range of bankruptcy and insolvency litigation in Chapter 11 and Chapter 7 cases, as well as in less-common Chapter 9 and Chapter 12 cases and Chapter 13 class-action adversary proceedings and receiverships. She has represented clients in a multitude of industries, including oil and gas, healthcare (including pharmacies), hotel and hospitality, restaurant, retail, real estate, and banking and financial services.
Kristina recognizes that bankruptcy cases and receiverships often involve business, legal, and regulatory issues that extend well beyond the financial concerns at the heart of a given matter. She regularly draws on her extensive experience and leadership acumen to coordinate teams of in-house and outside counsel and help clients manage complicated claims, cross-claims, and any parallel criminal proceedings to a satisfactory conclusion. A prime example is when she represented the interests of multiple clients victimized in the largest mortgage-fraud scheme in Mississippi history, which involved more than 40 separate Chapter 7 cases and related federal criminal prosecutions and federal civil litigation.
