ATTORNEYBrooke Bornick

I have represented entrepreneurs, investors, businesses and financial institutions in a range of commercial issues in federal, state, and bankruptcy court.  As a lawyer advising troubled companies and their creditors, I conduct post-mortems on failed companies, harvest the assets with remaining value, and resuscitate the companies that can be saved.  I negotiate, draft and litigate contracts and financial instruments; investigate and recover assets; and recognize precursors to insolvency.
