Greg possesses a distinctive background representing lenders in out-of-trust floorplan financing arrangements involving motor vehicle and industrial equipment dealerships in multiple jurisdictions, beyond the firm’s physical footprint. Greg also has particular skills and strengths to deal with the unique issues that arise in commercial transactions, including the representation of parties in contentious Chapter 15 bankruptcy proceedings, as well as in complex litigation under Section 1113 and 1114 of the Bankruptcy Code to reject or modify collective bargaining agreements and retiree benefits.
Greg’s career in bankruptcy and his vast experience extends to representing clients in multiple business sectors, including the healthcare, hospitality, steel, and transportation industries.
