He represents corporate debtors, secured and unsecured lenders, trustees, bondholders, committees, lessors and lessees, and other entities in out-of-court restructuring and bankruptcy proceedings. He has significant experience in distressed acquisitions and divestitures, complex commercial transactions, and business litigation.

Kevin has been involved in a wide variety of debt financings, including receivables securitizations, senior and subordinated debt issues, and bond financing involving a federally recognized Indian tribal government.

Kevin has written articles and lectured in a variety of legal and business forums, including Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education, on various topics related to bankruptcies, restructurings, and commercial lending, including bankruptcy sales (both buyer and seller perspectives), recharacterization of equity and equitable subordination, recognizing bankruptcy risks in second lien lending situations, negotiating credit agreements, and enforcing guaranties.
