Nicholas J. Zluticky of Stinson LLP Selected as One of ABI’s 2019 “40 Under 40”

Alexandria, Va. ABI announces that Nicholas J. Zluticky of Stinson LLP (Kansas City, Mo.) has been selected as one of ABI’s “40 Under 40,” ABI’s annual program that recognizes 40 of the top insolvency industry professionals under the age of 40. Honorees will be recognized at a special ceremony during ABI’s 2019 Winter Leadership Conference, taking place Dec. 5-7 at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.

Zluticky represents a broad range of clients in all facets of bankruptcy, receiverships, foreclosures, out-of-court workouts and restructurings. He has experience leading lenders in nationwide cases to banks of all sizes in bankruptcy proceedings and related litigation. Zluticky has worked on some of the largest bankruptcy cases in the country, including representing the debtor in a large bankruptcy dubbed “Transaction of the Year” by the Turnaround Management Association. He represents clients in all aspects of bankruptcy cases, including debtors, secured lenders, asset-purchasers, trustees and creditors' committees. He also has represented more than 50 lenders across the country in all areas of workouts and enforcement of commercial loans, including receiverships, foreclosures, replevins, collection actions and lender-liability litigation.

Zluticky writes frequently on recent court decisions in the bankruptcy field, publishing on JD Supra and in the Journal of Corporate Renewal, and he presents regularly at conferences for ABI and the National Association of Bankruptcy Trustees. He received his J.D. with honors from Washburn University and his B.A. in political science from the University of Kansas.

“This 2019 class of honorees is incredibly accomplished and diverse, and well representative of the multidisciplinary nature of our community,” said ABI Executive Director Samuel J. Gerdano. “We look forward to engaging these young leaders in the full range of ABI's activities, in service to the profession.”

The “40 Under 40” winners are distinguished by professional achievements and service and were selected by a group of experienced professionals from ABI’s current leadership. Nominations were submitted via the initiative’s website, through which professionals nominated themselves or a colleague. Membership in ABI was not required, and more than 350 candidates were evaluated. Those selected were chosen from both large and small firms from every region of the country, and represent diverse practice areas such as law, finance, accounting, consulting, academia, government and more.
