Finance and restructuring partner Kayla Britton has been named a 2020 “40 Under 40” honoree by American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI).
ABI’s highly competitive “40 Under 40” program recognizes insolvency professionals who are committed to the highest standards of achievement at work and in their communities. This year, the program received applications from more than 250 individuals representing a large range of firms, and the program’s steering committee deliberated for two months to narrow the list down to 40 honorees.
As a partner in the firm’s Indianapolis office, Britton provides general and transactional representation to mid-sized businesses and publicly held companies. She represents debtors, creditors, committees and other interested parties in bankruptcy, including national Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases. She also advises companies and boards of directors on prebankruptcy contingency planning, working to develop out-of-court solutions while also laying the necessary foundation for a successful bankruptcy proceeding if necessary.
Britton has experience advising chapter 11 debtors in the agribusiness, real estate, for-profit college, finance and manufacturing industries. She also represents clients in defending avoidance actions, advising on debtor-in-possession credit facilities, and working with potential buyers in navigating the 363-sale process.
Britton earned her bachelor’s degree from Purdue University and her Juris Doctor from the Indiana University McKinney School of Law.
