Commercial Litigation

Retained post-judgment after liability and damages were already established against our client, an investment firm, related to alleged violations of ordinance and zoning laws. Our client faced over $2 million in charges. Staring down judgment execution and garnishment actions from an aggressive (and angry) plaintiff, we devised a strategy of “offense for defense.” Specifically, we initiated a class action against a large municipality and its Department of Licenses and Inspections, challenging the legality of a city ordinance as charging an excessive fine, leading to a very favorable settlement for our client, including total avoidance of execution and garnishment proceedings. 

Represented the plaintiff, a financial consulting firm, where our team was successful in obtaining an injunction, an award, and an admission of liability. This matter was important in the protection of the client’s marks as part of a nationwide campaign to stem counterfeiting, which was costing the client millions of dollars on a continuing basis. For this reason, obtaining the injunction and admission of liability were critical components of protecting our client from present and future losses. 

Represented client in defeating temporary restraining order and claims of trade secret misappropriation and tortious interference. With a team effort, RCCB responded to the motion for a preliminary injunction just before the Thanksgiving holiday, which was followed by an extensive evidentiary hearing before the Court. The Court agreed with our client’s position, rejected the Plaintiffs’ trade secret allegations (among others), denied the preliminary injunction, and dissolved the prior restraining order.

Represented a retail distributor of high-quality perishable foods in bringing claims for breach of contract and breach of the covenant for good faith and fair dealing against a software implementation provider. Our client hired the provider to install ERP software for its fast-paced seafood distribution business.

Our client then engaged RCCB’s litigation team to pursue a demand for arbitration against the software provider, with successful results for our client.

Represented the Respondent/Counterclaimant in a complex commercial dispute before the American Arbitration Association which arose from the Claimant/Counterclaim Respondent’s long-running pattern of fraudulent misrepresentations and omissions, which caused it to accumulate a $1million+ debt to our client. We were successful in our strategy to create an opportunity for the parties to settle upon favorable terms.

Represented a client in a dispute involving a minority owner who lodged claims of copyright infringement and breach of fiduciary duties against RCCB’s company client. At its heart, the case is not so much an intellectual property row but instead is a matter stemming from bad blood between family members. RCCB’s litigation team has deep experience navigating family disputes and has used its best practices in this case in order to pave a path towards a successful resolution for its client. 

Represented a publicly-traded medical device company in a wide-ranging dispute with the company’s former CEO, majority stockholder and current Board member, including simultaneously leading an internal investigation and liaising with the company’s Board of Directors and the Special Committee, culminating in the timely exit of the CEO/Board member and the sale of all of his stock in the company.

Represented an aggrieved investor in the Chancery Court of Delaware in a dispute stemming from allegations that the manager of a health and wellness startup fund misappropriated a significant amount of the client’s investment.

Business Restructuring and Bankruptcy

Miller, in his capacity as Chapter 7 Trustee for the jointly administered bankruptcy estates of J & M Sales Inc., et al., pending in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (Ad. Pro. No. 20-50775). The lawsuit alleges that the clients received avoidable transfers as trade creditors of a company acquired by the Debtors in a leveraged buyout. We are lead litigation counsel for our clients, and the case involves the Trustee’s unusual attempt to collapse a series of related transactions so as to impose liability on our clients, among others, and raises novel theories regarding the meaning of “value” and “transferee” under applicable Bankruptcy and Delaware law.

We have been retained by the Administrator’s German counsel to advise on matters of U.S. law with respect to Air Berlin’s U.S. creditors, including the negotiation of an insurance settlement and investigating possible preferential transfer and fraudulent transfer actions against various U.S. creditors. In our role, we have: sent a demand letter to a U.S. insurer and are negotiating a resolution of certain claims, researched how to enforce foreign (i.e., U.S.) judgments in Germany, advised on the possibility of instituting original actions in the U.S. against U.S. creditors and generally advised on U.S. law insolvency matters.

Represented the secured creditor in a small business Subchapter V Chapter 11 case pending in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. The debtor, which is in the hospitality industry, had its business interrupted by COVID. Because it was unable to operate for many months in 2020, the debtor fell behind on payments to its landlord and other entities. RCCB engaged with the debtor on the use of cash collateral and other issues in the bankruptcy case. The debtor filed a plan of reorganization which, if approved by the Court, will pay our client in full and with interest. 

Represented a secured lender to a company undergoing a restructuring. All of the major parties in interest agreed on the terms of the reorganization and to consummate it as part of a pre-arranged Chapter 11 filing which we expect to be filed in the near future.
