Meredith R. Theisen
Indianapolis Bankruptcy Lawyer


Firm Partner Meredith R. Theisen concentrates her practices in the areas of bankruptcy, bankruptcy litigation, debtors and creditors’ rights, business representation, secured transactions, real estate sales, state court receiverships, commercial litigation, and bankruptcy trustee and state court receiver representation.

Her bankruptcy practice includes representing individuals, businesses, debtors, and creditors in Chapters 7, 11, 12 and 13 bankruptcy cases, out of court debt restructuring, receivership actions, and litigation matters.  She has served as counsel to individuals and businesses reorganizing in Chapter 11 cases or liquidating in complex Chapter 7 cases.  She also has extensive experience representing bankruptcy trustees in both Chapter 7 and 11 cases.  Throughout her practice, Meredith has developed an expertise in asset protecting, business liquidation and wind down, property acquisition through a bankruptcy 363 sale, lease assignment through a bankruptcy 365 assumption and assignment process, defending preference/fraudulent conveyance actions and non-dischargeability actions.

Much of her representation includes providing proactive counsel to businesses as she helps identify and minimize potential issues that could negatively impact operations.  She also assists new business owners form business entities, choose the best entity type based upon their needs, and assist with start-up compliance issues so that new ventures will be on a firm legal ground for success.
