About

Kellie Fisher represents secured and unsecured creditors, equity holders, debtors, liquidating and litigation trustees, DIP lenders, and official and ad hoc committees of creditors and equity holders in many aspects of restructuring and insolvency – including litigation.

With a sophisticated understanding of the restructuring legal landscape, Kellie represents a wide array of stakeholders in Chapter 7, 11, 12, and 13 cases and other restructuring transactions. She skillfully advises clients on all aspects of the restructuring process, including plan negotiation and drafting, DIP lending, section 363 sales, adversary proceedings and contested matters, fraudulent conveyance and preference litigation, and other debtor/creditor litigation.

Recent examples of Kellie’s representation include the official committee of unsecured creditors in the Sure Winner Foods Chapter 11 bankruptcy case, and the largest creditor in a contested sale trial in the IDL Development, Inc. Chapter 11 bankruptcy case. She also successfully represented a Vermont-based textile firm as the debtor in its Chapter 11 bankruptcy case, and restructured millions of dollars in debt in the process.

Kellie has received many professional accolades for her work. She is recognized as “One to Watch” in Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law by Best Lawyers. She is a board member of the International Women’s Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation (IWIRC New England) and a member of the American Bankruptcy Institute and the Turnaround Management Association. Additionally, she published an article “Supreme Court May Consider Whether Tribal Sovereign Immunity Is Abrogated by Bankruptcy Code.” Prior to joining Drummond Woodsum, Kellie maintained a restructuring practice at an international law firm in Boston.

In her free time, Kellie enjoys skiing, competing at trivia, and spending time at the Scarborough beaches.
