Our Experience

Case Study

Mintz’s Bankruptcy & Restructuring team achieved a significant victory by obtaining complete dismissal (at the pleading stages) of a lawsuit brought against our clients by a liquidating entity, which sought to recover at least $50 million in damages based on allegedly fraudulent transfers of real estate during and after a bankruptcy case.

Case Study

Mintz represented Bay Point Capital Partners, LP in investigations pertaining to its financing of a prepetition sale-leaseback transaction related to the bankruptcy case of Mission Coal Company, LLC. Our attorneys negotiated a settlement that protected the lender’s interests and made it whole.

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.
