Nathan E. Delman
“The law draws lines. My job is to know where they are - to work within them or work to redefine them to get the best results for my clients.”

Nate is an associate in HMB’s Bankruptcy, Reorganization and Creditors’ Rights Group. His practice focuses on business reorganization and the protection of secured and unsecured creditor’s rights in insolvency situations. He is also the firm’s resident resource on personal bankruptcy.

Nate has practiced bankruptcy for over a decade and has handled matters of all sizes. He also has experience in citation hearings, foreclosure defense and litigating adversary proceedings in bankruptcy court. He thrives in high-pressure situations and has a knack for distilling complex information in plain English for his clients.

Recently, Nate successfully represented certain consumer debtors against the City of Chicago on its vehicle impoundment policy before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, helping to secure a victory which preserves essential rights of debtors.

An industry thought leader, Nate frequently lectures on bankruptcy matters on both local and national stages and has co-chaired one of the American Bankruptcy Institute’s most prestigious regional conferences for the past three years. Nate also was recently appointed as an inaugural member of the Northern District of Illinois Local Rules Advisory Committee, which provides direct communication with the bench on the applicable local bankruptcy rules.

Sophisticated Counsel in Complex Situations
