Tampa-based Stichter, Riedel, Blain & Prosser, P.A. announced that it has opened a second satellite office, this one in Destin, Florida. The firm also has an office in Ft. Myers, Florida. The Destin office address is 4475 Legendary Drive, Suite 40, Destin, Florida 32541-9306. The telephone number is (850) 460-7676. In July 2013, Stichter Riedel began its fortieth year specializing in the representation of debtors, creditors’ committees, purchasers, and secured and unsecured creditors in bankruptcy cases and out of court workouts and in representing parties in commercial litigation pending in state or federal courts. Destin is located within the geographical area that comprises the Northern District of Florida in the United States Court system, an area that stretches from the panhandle on the west to Gainesville.
In connection with the opening of the Destin office, co-managing partner, Harley Riedel stated: “The opening of the Destin office is a natural outgrowth of the firm’s active practice in the Northern District of Florida and the panhandle of Florida. Over the past decades, the firm has been lead counsel for parties in many of the largest cases filed in the Northern District. These cases include Laketown Wharf (debtor-in-possession), Boyd Brothers, Inc. (debtor-in-possession), Deb-Lyn (debtor-in-possession), Cypress Health Systems (debtor-in-possession), The Maritime Officers Union (debtor-in-possession), the John Christo case (representing Earl Padgett), North American Archery (debtor-in-possession), and Moltech Power Systems (debtor-in-possession). In addition, the firm has successfully resolved numerous cases in the Panhandle area through negotiations or state court litigation in advance of a potential bankruptcy filing. The opening of the Destin office will give us the opportunity to better serve our clients in the area.”
