Cleveland, Ohio (July 18, 2013) – Lawyers of Color (LOC) recently named 100 early- to mid-career minority attorneys under 40 from the Midwest Region to its inaugural Hot List. McDonald Hopkins is very pleased to announce that Manju Gupta has been named to this exceptional group.
Quarles & Brady’s Chicago office is hosting a reception and photo shoot for the honorees, who will also be profiled in Lawyers of Color’s inaugural Hot List Special Issue (July 2013).
Manju concentrates her practice in the areas of complex bankruptcy proceedings, debt restructuring, creditors’ rights, and specialized representation of commercial sureties in chapter 11 bankruptcies. She works in the firm’s Business Restructuring Services Department representing debtors, creditors, creditor committees, liquidating trustees, and commercial sureties in business reorganization matters.
The honorees were chosen through a two-pronged process.

Nominations were accepted from mentors, peers and colleagues. Editorial picks were made based on the research of attorneys who had noteworthy accomplishments or were active in legal pipeline initiatives.
