Mariane's practice is primarily focused on insolvency and bankruptcy related cases. The insolvency practice includes the representation of debtors-in-possession in Chapter 11 proceedings, representation of Chapter 11 trustees, liquidating agents, and receivers, and the representation of secured and unsecured creditors in cases pending before the bankruptcy court. Mariane has also represented assignors and assignees in the statutorily created liquidation process known as an “Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors.” ?

Mariane has developed a specialty for fraudulent transfer litigation under the Bankruptcy Code and the Florida Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act (“FUFTA”). During this time, as either chief or co-counsel, she commenced adversary proceedings to recover assets for the bankruptcy estate which would then be distributed to the unsecured creditors. Two of the most significant cases were the Ponzi schemes, In re World Vision Entertainment, Inc., and In re Evergreen Security Ltd.

Mariane is currently a member of the Executive Council of the Business Law Section of the Florida Bar, and is an officer and member of the board of directors of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers (FAWL). She is also currently serving as the Editor for the FAWL Journal. ?
