Two of our partners are members of United States Trustee’s panel of trustees. In that capacity they have been appointed as trustees in literally thousands of Chapter 11 and Chapter 7 cases over the years. They are involved in the valuation and sale of assets of companies in a wide variety of industries. In each case, Murtha Cullina has served as counsel and represented them in connection with every aspect of the reorganization or liquidation process. In addition, members of our team frequently represent other trustees in the region. As counsel to trustees, we have investigated numerous claims involving the validity of liens held by secured creditors, director and officer liability issues, insurance coverage and preference and/or fraudulent transfer actions.
