As a longtime member of the ABI, Katona was elected to the Board of Directors during its 39th Annual Spring Meeting this month.

“I am honored to be elected to the prestigious ABI Board,” said Katona. “I have tremendous respect for all of my restructuring colleagues at ABI, and I look forward to continuing my commitment to the organization in this new role.” 

At Polsinelli, Katona focuses her practice on bankruptcy, financial restructuring and creditors’ rights matters. She has nearly 14 years of practice working with distressed companies and various stakeholders across industries including debtors, creditors and bankruptcy litigants, as well as buyers and sellers of distressed assets across the country.
