EZ Lube

The firm represented EZ Lube, the largest independent quick-lube operator in California and one of the largest privately owned companies of its type in the United States, in its chapter 11 bankruptcy cases. Prior to the petition date, the company had 78 locations in Southern California, and 4 in Arizona. In less than one year after filing for bankruptcy, the firm confirmed a plan of reorganization that converted approximately $94.5 million of claims into various units in reorganized EZ Lube, went effective with the plan, and emerged from bankruptcy as a stronger, more competitive operating company.
