Unfinished Business and Fraudulent Conveyance Claims

Successfully defended Dechert LLP against “unfinished business” (Jewel v. Boxer) and fraudulent conveyance claims in the SDNY, Second Circuit and New York Court of Appeals. Based on this advocacy, the New York Court of Appeals issued a landmark decision repudiating the “unfinished business” doctrine, which avoided hundreds of millions of dollars of potential liability for this client and other law firms. See In re Thelen LLP, 24 N.Y.3d 16 (N.Y. 2014).
