ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Attorney Scott K. Brown is a contributing author for Bankruptcy Mediation, a new book on effectively using mediation to achieve resolution between debtors and creditors, published by the American Bankruptcy Institute.
A partner in the bankruptcy team at Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP in Phoenix, Brown is a frequent speaker and author on bankruptcy topics.
Written by Brown and other members of the American Bankruptcy Institute Mediation Committee, Bankruptcy Mediation details processes to help control costs and fashion relief in a more flexible manner than what could be achieved in court.
“Mediation can maximize returns to creditors by minimizing costs for those involved,” said Brown. “Rather than wait until late in the process, early stage mediation can often change the tone of a contested bankruptcy case resulting in a more favorable outcome.”
Brown represents commercial, agricultural and private lenders, healthcare companies and other businesses in a broad array of transactions and litigation. His experience includes both in-house and outside counsel roles in loan origination and documentation, regulatory compliance, litigation in state and federal court, receiverships and bankruptcies. He also represents clients regarding regulatory, lending and litigation issues related to consumer finance.
