Kathy Horne, a partner at Bouhan Falligant, was recently inducted as counselor for the Judge W. Homer Drake Georgia Bankruptcy Inn of Court, a statewide organization of attorneys and judges involved primarily in the practice of bankruptcy. The position of counselor, which Horne will hold this coming year, is the highest office held by a lawyer in the Inn. Chief Judge Susan D. Barrett, who sits in Augusta, will serve as president for the 2016-2017 year.

“This recognition is a prestigious one for both Kathy and the firm, as membership in the Inn is by invitation only,” said Lea Holliday, managing partner of Bouhan Falligant. “It is further evidence of her top-notch skills as a bankruptcy attorney.”

Horne, whose legal work focuses on creditors’ rights and bankruptcy, has previously been recognized as one of the “Top 50 Women Attorneys” in the State of Georgia by Atlanta magazine, a Georgia “Super Lawyer” and one of Georgia Trend magazine’s “Legal Elite.” She has been awarded the Judge Frank Cheatham Professionalism Award by the Savannah Bar Association, the Georgia Association of Women Lawyers Achievement Award, and the Business and Professional Women’s Club Woman of Achievement Award.

She received both her B.A. degree and her J.D. degree, cum laude, from the University of Georgia, where she was a member of several honor societies, including Phi Beta Kappa and Order of the Coif. Horne is active in the Savannah community, serving on the Advisory Board for Savannah State University College of Business Administration, the Junior League of Savannah Community Advisory Board, and the Board of Trustees of Historic Savannah Foundation.
