Maureen is an associate in the Bankruptcy, Creditors’ Rights and Financial Restructuring practice.
She focuses her practice on creditors’ rights under the Bankruptcy Code, primarily defending unsecured creditors against preference, fraudulent transfer and other avoidance claims in adversary proceedings brought by bankruptcy and liquidation trustees, creditors’ committees, receivers and assignees for the benefit of creditors. In addition to bankruptcy litigation, her practice areas have included commercial and consumer litigation, as well as family law early in her career – resulting in over 16 years of experience in litigation.
Prior to joining AGG, Maureen was employed by Alston & Bird, where she defended one of the largest shipment and logistics companies in the world against claims related to small-package shipments. As part of a team covering such claims nationwide, she gained a thorough knowledge of the regulation of carrier liability via the Carmack Amendment to the Interstate Commerce Act and the importance of carrier tariffs.
Maureen also spent two years at Jones Day defending a major credit reporting agency against consumer claims under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Her actions in that role included the preparation of an appellee brief submitted to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, which appeal had a favorable outcome for her client. Earlier, she spent over five years at King & Spalding assisting in the defense of large-scale litigation matters.
