Adine Momoh Named a "40 Under 40" Honoree by Minneapolis / St. Paul Business Journal
MINNEAPOLIS (Jan. 30, 2018)—Stinson Leonard Street congratulates Minneapolis partner Adine Momoh on her selection as one of the Minneapolis / St. Paul Business Journal's "40 Under 40" honorees.
Each year Business Journal editors select 40 professionals under the age of 40 — from a pool of hundreds of nominations — who have demonstrated outstanding professional achievement while also becoming leaders in their communities. The honorees will be recognized at a ceremony in March and in a special section of the publication later this year.
Momoh is a trial attorney representing clients in various aspects of litigation before states and federal courts across the country, from case development and strategy, to discovery, to motion practice, to trial, to appeal in matters involving creditors’ rights and bankruptcy, estates and trusts litigation, and securities and banking litigation. In her bankruptcy practice, Momoh regularly represents clients in matters involving cash collateral, DIP financing, 363 sales, plan confirmation, claim and administrative expense resolution and defense, fraudulent conveyance, preferential transfers and other avoidance actions. In her estates and trusts litigation practice, Momoh regularly represents fiduciaries (individuals and corporate entities), beneficiaries or devisees, and other interested persons in matters involving will or trust contests and probate or trust administration. In her securities and banking litigation practice, Momoh regularly represents regional and national banks and other financial institutions in matters involving breach of fiduciary duty, check endorsement issues, mortgage foreclosure and dual tracking defense, and defense of Regulation E claims.
Outside of the her practice, Momoh serves on the boards of various organizations, including The Saint Paul and Minnesota Community Foundations, Minnesota Association of Black Lawyers, the Federal Bar Association’s Minnesota Chapter and the International Women’s Insolvency and Reorganization Confederation–Minnesota Network.
In 2016, she was selected by the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges as a Blackshear Presidential Fellow. In 2017, she was named to the Federal Practice Committee for the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota, and later this year, Momoh will become the President of the Hennepin County Bar Association during its 100th Anniversary, the first black woman and youngest attorney to serve in that position.
"Adine is a leader in the firm, the bar and the community. We are thrilled that she has been recognized with this prestigious honor," said Mark Hinderks, the managing partner of Stinson Leonard Street. "She exemplifies our best. She is a skilled attorney who seeks out and leans into new challenges and responsibilities. Adine works tirelessly to find the best solutions for clients. She is equally unselfish in applying her talents to many worthy organizations outside of our office walls. We are very excited to see what she accomplishes next."
