Bankruptcy matters

Problem

You are a bankruptcy trustee.

You have a case with legal claims that have high potential value.  But maximizing that potential will require litigators with the highest level of skill and expertise, fierce determination, and a proven ability to win a war.  Can you find such litigators without having to risk millions of dollars paying millions of dollars in billable hours?

Typical matters include:

  • claims for antitrust violations, fraud, or breach of contract against suppliers
  • preference claims
  • avoidance of transfers under §§ 544, 548, 549, or 550 of the Bankruptcy Code or state law 
  • claims against directors and officers of the debtor
  • claims enforcing the debtor’s intellectual property rights

Bankruptcy Case Study

Taking over a bankruptcy case before trial

To take over a bankruptcy case shortly before trial and win, a firm must learn the nuanced facts and legal issues, uncover new insights in the evidence and arguments, finish any remaining depositions and expert reports, win the key motions, develop a wining trial strategy for liability and damages, prepare powerful trial examinations and visuals—and do so in a very short period of time.

When we face this test, we excel.  Here is an example.

The client (CASI) went into bankruptcy.  Lockheed sued the client and the client responded with its own counterclaims.  After intensive litigation, the trial was rapidly approaching.  The client decided to seek new counsel with “trial and technical expertise.”

Who do you turn to as trial approaches?

The results – a very satisfied client:
