Marshall Dennehey Launches New Bankruptcy Litigation Practice Group

Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin announced today the launch of a Bankruptcy Litigation Practice Group within the firm's Professional Liability Department. Attorneys in the practice group will counsel and defend clients in all aspects of bankruptcy-related litigation and protect the rights and interests of clients who find themselves as creditors in a bankruptcy.

The new practice group will be led by Gregory W. Fox, shareholder in the firm's Philadelphia office, and Thomas D. Walsh, Special Counsel in the firm's Wilmington, DE office. Mr. Fox has significant experience in defending avoidance actions, representing corporate directors and officers in adversary proceedings, and representing banks and mortgage servicers in bankruptcy matters. Mr. Walsh is similarly well-versed in defending avoidance actions and D&O claims, and is highly experienced in all aspects of commercial bankruptcy matters.

Christopher E. Dougherty, Marshall Dennehey's Chairman and Director of the firm's Professional Liability Department, said creation of a dedicated bankruptcy group is in response to client needs. "Increasingly, clients impacted by bankruptcy actions have come to us for counsel on everything from avoidance proceedings to insurance coverage disputes to recovery analysis," he said. "The time is ripe for this practice and we are confident that under Greg's leadership, and with his experience, sound judgment, initiative and genuine commitment to clients, our professional liability clients will greatly benefit from this new offering."

The Bankruptcy Litigation Practice Group will service all types of businesses, individual and commercial creditors, banks, mortgage servicers, auto finance companies, debt collectors, car rental companies, taxing authorities, municipal entities, insurance carriers, insurance brokers, construction companies and corporate directors and officers. With 20 offices throughout the east coast, including New York, NY and Wilmington, DE, where the largest corporate bankruptcies are regularly filed, Marshall Dennehey is well-positioned to represent clients seeking bankruptcy counsel.
