She is nationally known for her work representing financial institutions in their capacity as Indenture Trustee, Collateral Agent, and Administrative Agent.

She has in-depth knowledge of the bond industry and the regulations and laws that impact debt securities, as well as significant experience litigating issues related to debt securities in default situations. Kristin’s strength as a lawyer lies in her relentless pursuit of her clients’ goals.
