In addition to providing advice, counseling, and litigation and trial services to creditor-side clients in the financial services area, he has served as US trial counsel on product liability matters for a European insurer and its customers. He excels at helping creditors with distressed or defaulted credit facilities in and out of bankruptcy and in related adversary proceedings. He represented indenture trustees and noteholders (aircraft creditors) in the United and Delta bankruptcies, with a significant role in contested matters, including the United “Antitrust Litigation” against the aircraft creditors. The Group’s representation of the aircraft creditors resulted in improved recovery for the United aircraft creditors of nearly 100 percent, or more than $4 billion. He also served as primary counsel in representing an Official Creditors’ Committee in a defendants’ class action to recover an $80 million fraudulent conveyance of securities, and he played a significant role in the representation of a major Midwestern utility in the recovery of $30 million in insurance proceeds on policies dating to 1936. He has notable trial experience resulting in defense verdicts and also understands the business value of an appropriately negotiated settlement. His class action work has included defending major manufacturers on a variety of tort claims, as well as state agencies against constitutional claims. While his practice concentrates on bankruptcy and workouts in the financial arena as well as product liability matters, the substantive areas of his practice include preference and fraudulent conveyance actions in bankruptcy matters, insurance coverage and the prosecution and defense of business torts, and advising clients on proxy and control contests and eDiscovery issues.
