Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market

The firm represented the creditors' committee of this west-coast based grocery chain that operated 167 Fresh & Easy store locations. The debtors offered basic grocery items and prepared “to go” food items, including many private-label Fresh & Easy branded products. On behalf of the committee, the firm was actively involved in the sale of substantially all of the company’s assets to Yucaipa in a transaction valued at more than $130 million and the disposition of other key assets to third-party purchasers. The firm successfully negotiated a plan that paid general unsecured creditors in full.
