The Frutkin Law Firm announced that two of its established attorneys have been named partners.
Carolyn Tatkin serves as the head of the bankruptcy section at the firm and brings nearly 30 years of experience. Adam Buck brings more than a decade of experience in business law, real estate law and commercial litigation.
“We are excited about the newest partners to The Frutkin Law Firm,” said Principal Jonathan Frutkin. “Both of these attorneys will continue to fuel the growth of our firm.”
Tatkin’s legal experience includes not only a concentration in business and consumer bankruptcy law, but also the areas of insurance coverage and bad faith litigation, construction defect litigation and general business and commercial litigation.
She has background in both trial and appellate work in state and federal courts, encompassing all aspects of motion practice and oral advocacy, including oral arguments before the Ninth Circuit Bankruptcy Appellate Panel and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Buck focuses his practice on litigation and real estate law. He has successfully conducted numerous jury trials, bench trials, arbitrations and appeals. He has experience in all phases of civil litigation and trial. He has also represented clients before the Registrar of Contractors and the Department of Real Estate.
In addition to practicing law he has been personally involved in several start-up companies so he understands the needs of entrepreneurs and business owners. He was formerly licensed as a real estate agent in Nevada and Utah and was the Managing Partner of Buck Edmunds PLC, an Arizona law firm with a focus on real estate law and litigation.
The two attorneys will now act as partners to the Arizona firm. Last fall, The Frutkin Law Firm hired two new attorneys and relocated its office within Scottsdale to the Kierland Commons. They have another office in downtown Phoenix.
The Frutkin Law Firm now consists of nine attorneys with decades of experience in the core areas of business law, bankruptcy, estate and tax planning, and employee benefit plans.
