Higher Education: Restructuring and Compliance
- Served as financial advisor to counsel for holders of $20 million of an operator of for-profit post-secondary educational institution's $217 million Senior Unsecured Notes due in 2018. The holders argued that the corporation’s out-of-court restructuring violated the Trust Indenture Act of 1939 (TIA) and sought a permanent injunction against them preventing the proposed restructuring. Expert provided testimony and affirmative and rebuttal declarations supporting counsel in the case. Although the court did not grant a permanent injunction against the corporation’s $1.5 billion restructuring, the judge in the matter did state that the plaintiffs would likely prevail in litigation over their rights under the TIA being eliminated in an out-of-court restructuring.
