Diocese of Davenport

The firm represented the creditors' committee in the chapter 11 case of the Diocese of Davenport. The committee was instrumental in the drafting of the plan of reorganization, which was approved by the bankruptcy court in 2008. The firm negotiated the most extensive nonmonetary provisions of any case to date, and was also able to negotiate the allocation of the contingency fee of the state court lawyers across all tort claimants in order to ensure that survivors who had retained counsel would not receive a smaller distribution than the survivors who emerged during the bankruptcy case and did not retain counsel.
