Our Experience

Case Study
Mintz represented the ad hoc committee in casino giant Caesars Entertainment Corp.'s Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Mintz’s early summary judgment filing helped its clients settle with Caesars. ML Strategies helped to lobby Congress to oppose Caesars's proposed amendments to the Trust Indenture Act.

Case Study
Mintz represented Wilmington Savings Fund Society, FSB, the indenture trustee for holders of $367 million in notes, in oil and gas developer Energy XXI, Inc.’s contentious Texas bankruptcy. The noteholders ultimately received a cash payout of more than double the original offer amount.

Our Approach

Creditor recoveries are maximized when their interests are front and center in a bankruptcy case. Creditors that collaborate on common goals in a case have a greater voice at the negotiating table and benefit from the shared expense of a top-tier legal team. From pre-bankruptcy negotiations with the debtor and other stakeholders to leveraging the committee members’ collective strength in a contested plan confirmation, our restructuring lawyers deliver outstanding results to creditors.

Creditor Focus

Our work ranges from representing official committees in restructuring cases to representing the largest of stakeholders in ad hoc committees in some of the highest-profile bankruptcy cases in the country. We have the depth and know-how to personalize our approach to maximize the unique interests of the committee members.

Unique Issues and Goals

We recognize that each creditor will have unique issues and goals in every bankruptcy case. We personalize our approach to maximize your goals, often actively engaging other stakeholders early in a restructuring case to position your interests for the best possible outcome. We recognize there are synergies and benefits for similar creditors to collaborate on shared goals to maximize their collective interests in a restructuring case.

Maximum Value

Where it maximizes value to individual creditors to collaborate, we often form ad hoc committees to increase individual creditors' leverage to advance the common interests of the group. Along with our deep industry knowledge in retail, gaming, energy, manufacturing, financial services, and municipalities, we have a growing practice representing official committees and members of ad hoc committees. Our tenacity, creativity, and industry contacts make us well suited to maximize creditor recoveries.
