Chapter 11 proceedings move rapidly through the courts, and the ability to adapt to changing circumstances is a vital quality in a bankruptcy lawyer. Kara Hammond Coyle responds quickly to the myriad issues and time pressures that arise from the clash of multiple interests in a typical bankruptcy case, and her clients and co-counsel rely on her to find a workable balance among those competing interests.
Kara focuses her practice on corporate bankruptcy and restructuring, with an emphasis on debtor-side, complex Chapter 11 representations. Kara also represents secured lenders, ad hoc groups, buyers, significant creditors and parties in interest in both in-court and out-of-court deals, in a variety of industries, including energy, exploration and production, retail, agriculture, banking, telecommunications, insurance, software and technology, and manufacturing.
Kara is a member of the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI)’s 40 Under 40 Class (2018), serves on ABI’s Mid-Atlantic Advisory Board, and leads Young Conaway’s Pro Bono Committee.
