Sheryl P. Giugliano is a Partner in Diamond McCarthy’s New York office.  Her experience includes restructuring, bankruptcy, and litigation.  Sheryl works with companies facing solvency issues to identify a solution and implement a strategic response, which includes negotiating with interested parties, creditors, and shareholders, and may also include filing for bankruptcy protection, or facilitating an out-of-court wind down.   

She has represented several middle-market companies facing operational or litigation issues, guiding them through the chapter 11 or chapter 7 process to a successful reorganization or liquidation.  Sheryl also has represented trustees by assisting in the analysis and recovery of assets and prosecution of litigation claims, as well as secured and unsecured creditors identifying and enforcing their rights, assisting in their efforts to extend financing or consent to the use of cash collateral.  In addition, Sheryl has represented contract counterparties negotiating for the highest  possible cure payment or claim, defendants in preference and fraudulent conveyance actions (both in bankruptcy litigation and negotiating settlements to avoid protracted litigation), and purchasers in bankruptcy auctions.   

She earned her LL.M. degree in Bankruptcy from St. John’s University School of Law, and has utilized her extensive experience in bankruptcy to expand her practice as a business-oriented lawyer.  Sheryl’s litigation experience includes representing parties in bankruptcy litigation and general commercial matters.  She has represented parties engaged in contract disputes in state and federal court, as well as arbitration matters before AAA and JAMS, and mediation, successfully negotiating on behalf of her clients to reach the best outcome possible.      

In addition to practicing law, Sheryl has written several articles on the application and interpretation of Bankruptcy Code section 546(e)’s “safe harbor”, and is an avid runner, completing four marathons, ten half-marathons, and countless 10 mile, 10K, and 5K races.
