A History of Excellence: New York Chapter 11 Lawyers
Our lawyers have decades of experience in resolving the challenges presented by the bankruptcies of professional partnerships. In the early 1990s, our firm served as counsel to the official committee of unsecured creditors and our senior partner, Albert Togut, served as post-confirmation trustee in the Chapter 11 bankruptcy of Finley Kumble, then the fourth largest law firm in the United States. Since then, Togut, Segal & Segal has served in the same capacity in several capacities in Chapter 11 cases involving prominent New York law practices, including Shea & Gould, Bower & Gardner and Berger Steingut. In each of these cases, Mr. Togut completed the bankruptcy case as Trustee.
Thus, in the Finley Kumble, Shea & Gould and Bower & Gardner cases, we were also counsel to the post-confirmation trustee under Chapter 11 liquidating plans, with primary responsibility for maximizing the value of the debtor law firms' assets by obtaining agreements for partner contributions to settlements with creditors under Chapter 11 plans that were successfully confirmed. Most of these claims involved the recovery of avoidable preference payments.
Mr. Togut has more than 30 years of experience as a trustee.
