Residential Capital, LLC
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y.) Acted as counsel to Residential Capital and its affiliates, comprising one of the largest residential real estate finance companies at the time of its chapter 11 filing, with assets and liabilities each in excess of $15 billion. The debtors’ business was comprised primarily of loan servicing and origination. Residential Capital was the largest bankruptcy filing of 2012 and the case represents the first time ever that a mortgage servicer was able to successfully continue servicing and originating mortgages in bankruptcy and be sold as a going concern.

------------

Tricom, S.A
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y) Represented Tricom, S.A. and its affiliates in their Chapter 11 cases, which involved the restructuring of more than $700 million in bond and other loan facility debt. Tricom and its affiliates are, collectively, one of the preeminent full service providers of telecommunications services in the Dominican Republic. The cases represent the first effort to reorganize a public Dominican Republican corporation under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code.

------------

In re Caribbean Petroleum Corp., et al.
(Bankr. D. Del.) Represented the official committee of unsecured creditors of Caribbean Petroleum Corp., one of the primary importers and distributors of petroleum products in Puerto Rico, in its chapter 11 case. We successfully negotiated a $24 million insurance buy back from Caribbean Petroleum's liability insurance carrier for the benefit of general unsecured creditors.

------------

Paper International, Inc.
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y.) Represented Paper International, Inc. (“PII”), and Fiber Management of Texas, Inc. (“FMT”), in their Chapter 11 cases. The New Mexico-based PII and the Texas-based FMT are U.S. subsidiaries of one of the largest integrated paper producers in North America and guarantors of the parent company's $520 million bond debt. After extensive negotiations among the stakeholders in the case, PII, FMT, and their ultimate Mexican parent Corporación Durango, proposed a joint reorganization plan that was overwhelmingly approved by creditors and approved by the Bankruptcy Court.

------------

In re General Growth Properties, Inc., et al.
(Bankr. S.D.N.Y.) Represents Eurohypo AG’s New York Branch and a group of lenders that has more than $2.6 billion of exposure to GGP. Soon after confirmation of GGP’s reorganization plan, we worked with the agent to defeat GGP’s objection to the agent’s claim for default interest on the loan, and obtained an order from the bankruptcy court awarding the agent, for the benefit of the lenders, over $89 million in contract-rate default interest.
