• Purchases of assets in insolvency proceedings

In addition, Doug identifies and resolves problem areas in secured transactions, such as priority disputes, preference claims, trusts, fiduciary obligations, fiduciary claims and fraud actions. Clients also turn to Doug for help with investor actions, fraud investigation and recovery, injunctions and corporate and commercial dispute resolution.
