North Carolina-based real estate law firm Shapiro & Ingle has announced the formation of a Bankruptcy Litigation Department at their firm with Kimberly A. Sheek heading the new department.
Sheek was named one of North Carolina's Super Lawyers – Rising Stars by her peers in 2013. She has spoken at many continuing legal education courses on a variety of topics and was also a contributing author of the North Carolina Bankruptcy Practice Manual, which is the manual most referenced by North Carolina bankruptcy professionals. Sheek has more than eight years of experience representing mortgage servicers in all types of bankruptcy cases, including Chapter 7, 11, 12, and 12, and she has successfully defended many lenders in litigated cases.
"It was only natural that Ms. Sheek would head the Bankruptcy Litigation Department given her professional dedication and relentless pursuit of excellence," said Grady Ingle, managing partner of Shapiro & Ingle. "I am highly confident that Ms. Sheek will continue to provide our clients with outstanding legal representation with an eye towards cost management. To decrease litigation risk, it is clear that creditors must ensure that they are represented by knowledgeable attorneys who understand the numerous challenges they face on a daily basis. Ms. Sheek has always met that challenge head on in an environment that continues to evolve."
The new Bankruptcy Litigation Department at Shapiro & Ingle will provide creditors with many services, including: identifying potential bankruptcy litigation exposure and providing practical solutions; representing creditors in adversary proceedings, motions for sanctions, and other bankruptcy litigation; responding to emergencies; and providing general compliance advice relating to bankruptcy and federal and state laws and regulations.
