Serving as lead outside counsel in the untangling of a massive, complex credit union fraud, considered to be the “largest fraud case ever in credit union history,” (Credit Union Times, March 14, 2013). Managed the civil side of the money laundering investigation from a federally regulated institution including: bankruptcies, collection actions and fraudulent conveyances. This multi-state investigation which transcended international borders involved bankruptcy, banking, white collar crime and litigation and led to the ultimate collapse and eventual liquidation of the former Ohio-based St. Paul Croatian Federal Credit Union.
