Bankruptcy and Receivership Litigation

We have extensive experience representing bankruptcy trustees, SEC receivers, plan administrators, liquidating trustees, and creditor committees in the pursuit of bankruptcy-related litigation. Over the past few years, we have served as special counsel in numerous bankruptcies and receiverships across the country, including: Adeptus Health, Agape World, Centaur, Central Grocers, Cornerstone Ministries, Doral Financial, Enron/LJM2, Fresh & Easy, GT Advanced Technologies, Horizon, Neogenix Oncology, OCZ Technology, Pali Capital, Rhythm & Hues, Seahawk Drilling, SFX Entertainment, Thelen, Tom Petters, Trevor Cook, and USA Capital.

We have successfully prosecuted claims for fraud and breach of fiduciary duty against the former directors, officers, and managers of many of these bankrupt and/or insolvent companies. In addition, as further described in the section on Professional Malpractice and Business Torts, we have successfully pursued claims for negligence and aiding and abetting breach of fiduciary duty against the former attorneys and auditors of many of these companies.

We also have expertise handling fraudulent-transfer actions on behalf of trustees. In fact, we serve as counsel to the trustee in Merit Management Group v. FTI Consulting in which the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the Seventh Circuit’s ruling restricting the scope of the “safe harbor” defense under section 546(e) of the Bankruptcy Code, opening new avenues of recovery for bankruptcy trustees across the country.
