Christopher Fong is counsel in the Bankruptcy & Financial Restructuring group and is located in the firm’s New York office. He is involved in all facets of domestic and international corporate reorganizations, workouts and out-of-court restructurings.
My practice primarily focuses on the representation of debtors, secured lenders, unsecured creditors, indenture trustees and official committees in complex Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases, receiverships, state court proceedings and out-of-court workouts. I have also represented liquidators and foreign representatives in chapter 15 cases to recover assets in the United States.
I have represented clients across a variety of industries including fintech (cryptocurrency), energy, retail, health care, telecommunications and manufacturing. I also represent clients in bankruptcy litigation, both as plaintiffs and defendants, across a wide variety of matters including avoidance and fraudulent transfer actions.
My practice also includes representing purchasers seeking to acquired distressed assets out of bankruptcy cases.
I have represented a diverse variety of debtors in various aspects of corporate restructurings. Most recently, I have represented smarTours, LLC, Boston Restaurant Associates; GT Advanced Technologies, Inc.; Furniture Brands International, Inc.; and FairPoint Communications, Inc. as debtors in possession in their Chapter 11 cases.
I have previously represented official committees of unsecured creditors in the Chapter 11 cases of Cosi, Inc.; NewPage Corporation; and AbitibiBowater Inc. I also represented the official victims’ committee appointed in the Chapter 11 case of Montreal, Maine and Atlantic Railway.
I also frequently represent unsecured creditors, including vendors and landlords in a variety of restructurings, both in court and out of court. In addition, my practice also includes the representation of indenture trustees, including, most recently, in the Chapter 11 case of Hertz and Energy Future Holdings Corp.
As the cost of filing for chapter 11 increases (both domestically and abroad), the use of non-bankruptcy alternatives such as receiverships and assignments for the benefit of creditors become more valuable and cost-efficient tools. These tools are likely to become more popular alternatives to chapter 11 as bankruptcy costs become prohibitively expensive.
