Palomba Weingarten

The firm served as counsel to the examiner appointed in the chapter 11 case of Palomba Weingarten in the Central District of California. The debtor owns and manages several companies related to a residential development project located in San Diego, California. The examiner was appointed, among other things, to analyze whether the debtor and her spouse have a valid and enforceable interspousal transmutation agreement and to investigate the debtor’s conduct of her businesses. With the assistance and counsel of the Firm’s attorneys, the examiner prepared and submitted a comprehensive report on the interspousal agreement issues and an extensive report on various financial/accounting matters. These reports involved the investigation and analysis of complex legal and factual issues that the Firm believes will impact the ultimate resolution of this pending chapter 11 case by increasing the distribution to creditors.
