Cahill is able to bring exceptional litigation skills and resources to bear as needed in the context of bankruptcy and restructuring proceedings. While such proceedings are ultimately focused on trying to achieve a successful resolution or transaction, the ability to litigate effectively on short notice is often essential to achieving that goal. Cahill utilizes experienced bankruptcy and restructuring litigators whenever needed, and because of the depth of our litigation practice, we have available resources for whatever the situation may require. We assist clients in complex litigations with respect to various debtor/creditor issues, including defense of avoidance actions and other adversary proceedings, claims objections, debt recharacterization, equitable subordination, and lender-liability matters, both in the structuring phase and during bankruptcy and other court proceedings.
We have litigated complex issues in multiple bankruptcy cases, including Lehman, SP Newsprint, Orleans Homebuilders, Charlie Brown’s Steakhouse, and Trico Marine Services. In addition, we have represented Credit Suisse and led an effort to distribute assets of, and pursue claims of more than $10 billion related to, the failed hedge fund Archegos.
