Betsy focuses her practice on the representation of corporations as debtors and debtors-in-possession in chapter 11 proceedings. She has been instrumental in the lead-up to several major chapter 11 filings, due in part to her varied training and experience. Betsy is able to quickly and efficiently research and analyze data, a skill she developed while working as a reporter for a prominent financial magazine.  She also worked at a top New York law firm drafting financial offering prospectuses for structured investment products. Overseeing the quality and execution of derivatives and other financial products filed with the SEC has produced Betsy’s extraordinary attention to detail. Thanks to her background in economics-philosophy, Betsy is also able to quickly comprehend the varied business objectives that often accompany the allocation of a debtor’s limited resources. These abilities make Betsy a valued team member throughout the administration of any chapter 11 proceedings.

During law school, Betsy interned in the Financial Litigation Unit for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts and in the Massachusetts Bankruptcy Court for Chief Judge Melvin S. Hoffman. She also served as Senior Articles Editor for the Boston University International Law Journal, and placed in various moot court competitions.
