Ms. Raubach joined HSSM in 2011 as an associate in the Bankruptcy, Restructuring and Creditor’s Rights practice group. As part of the bankruptcy team, Ms. Raubach has gained a wealth of experience representing debtors-in-possession through every stage of the Chapter 11 process, culminating in several confirmed plans of reorganization. She has dealt with the assumption and rejection of commercial leases and negotiation of settlements over cure amounts. She has spent significant time negotiating settlements and litigating issues to their resolution, including dischargeability, preference, and avoidance actions in jurisdictions throughout the United States. Ms. Raubach has also consistently represented creditors in collection actions and bankruptcy cases. Within the bankruptcy context, her collection work has included motions for relief from the automatic bankruptcy stay, objections to discharge, objections to plans of reorganization, and motions to dismiss bankruptcy cases. Outside of the bankruptcy context, Ms. Raubach has successfully prosecuted cases resulting in multi-million dollar recoveries for her creditor clients.
In addition to representing clients dealing with insolvency and collection issues, Ms. Raubach has led a variety of civil litigation cases in both the state and federal courts. Her experience covers the full range of the litigation process - from the initial filings to post-judgment motions. Ms. Raubach has also represented clients before the North Carolina Court of Appeals.
