Kyle E. Darch



Kyle Darch represents members of the financial services industry in litigation and complex business disputes with a particular focus on financial, corporate trust and structured products litigation. Kyle’s work focuses on representing trustees, master servicers, securities administrators and other parties in litigation related to troubled asset-backed securities (ABS) and residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) transactions with an emphasis on disputed transaction administration issues and claims by and against trustees (and other parties), trust instruction proceedings, and other matters.

Additionally, Kyle works on various bankruptcy issues, including defending preference and fraudulent conveyance actions in bankruptcy cases and other issues.

Pro Bono

Kyle recently worked on a pro bono appeal in the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals arguing that the Confrontation Clause of the 6th Amendment is not satisfied when a witness feigns a loss of memory, and that witness’s unconfronted prior testimony before a Grand Jury is therefore read into the Court’s record.   

Prior Experience

Prior to law school, Kyle worked for a boutique IP law firm in Chicago as a billing and intake coordinator, and as an associate producer for Big Ten Network (B1G Network).

Personal Interests

In his free time, Kyle enjoys re-watching heist films, playing basketball, rooting for the Chicago Bears, reading American history and fiction, and hiking.
