Select Case Studies / Notable Matters
- Acted as financial advisor to a debtor in the out-source logistics market. Our staff provided rolling 13 week cash flow forecasts, a plan of reorganization, litigation support for adversary proceedings, and restructuring services.
- Showed – in response to a preference action – that an insolvent software company transferred occupancy rights to a creditor as a contemporaneous exchange for new value (in the form of a release of license exclusivity).
- Proved a DIP’s contention that a payment fell within the statutory preference definition of 11 U.S.C. § 547(b). An insolvent financial services firm acting in a fiduciary capacity for its corporate client gave rise to a preference when making a transfer of property on behalf of the corporate client. Analysis showed that the economic substance of the financial service firm’s relationship with the corporate client included a beneficial interest in the transferred property.
