Assisted Ahern Rentals, Inc. in its successful Chapter 11 restructuring, beginning with an effective transition into Chapter 11 as a debtor-in-possession operating in the ordinary course of business, proposing a plan of reorganization, effectively guiding the company through contentious litigation with the company's lenders relating to leases and affiliate transactions, involving considerable e-discovery, and working with Ahern's various creditor constituencies which culminated in a consensual plan.

Represented Jerry's Nugget in its Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding, resulting in confirmation of a plan of reorganization which allowed retention of existing ownership and providing for debt restructuring.
Represented a financially-distressed golf and country club through successful reorganization, resulting in an asset sale and lease back of the club's real property while maintain the club's operations.
Navigated several multi-million dollar companies through the Chapter 11 claims reconciliation process addressing thousands of claims, resulting in several hundreds of claims objection and the reduction of the companies' claims obligations by several millions of dollars.
Represent single asset real estate debtors in all aspects of Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings, including negotiating the debtors' use of cash collateral, confirming plans of reorganization, and selling assets pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code.

Jeffrey A. Silver: The Man Who Exiled Frank Lefty Rosenthal From Nevada Gaming
In 1961, Jeffrey A. Silver and Frank Lefty Rosenthal had never heard of each other, but eventually their professions would collide. When the two met in a public hearing in January 1976, Silver was one of the three members of the Nevada State Gaming Control Board and Rosenthal was wielding major influence over an important segment of that state's casino industry. The result of that hearing and its aftermath would do much to shape the course of Nevada gaming control and the futures of both Silver and Rosenthal.
