Chadbourne takes pride in the successes we have achieved in representing creditors’ committees in large and high-profile Chapter 11 cases and restructurings. We have a record of proven success representing creditors’ committees in Chapter 11 cases ranging from those involving large national and international businesses such as Tribune Company, Spiegel, Inc./Eddie Bauer Inc., Parmalat USA Corp. and Metromedia Fiber Network, Inc. to major regional businesses such as The New York Daily News, The New York Post and Crown Books Corp.
Tribune Company Chapter 11
Chadbourne represented the Official Creditors’ Committee in the complex and high-profile reorganization of this media conglomerate which, at the time of filing, owned eight major newspapers, 23 television stations and the Chicago Cubs. Chadbourne was involved in every aspect of the case including actively investigating potential avoidance actions and aggressively negotiating and pursuing confirmation of a reorganization plan. After a three-week contested confirmation hearing, the court approved the settlement agreement at the heart of the plan of reorganization—an agreement Chadbourne actively negotiated and structured.
