With offices in Los Angeles, Costa Mesa and San Francisco (as well as outside California in Wilmington and New York), Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones is recognized nationwide for its market presence in the bankruptcy and insolvency niche. Among its many appointments, the firm currently represents the litigation trustee for SFX Entertainment, following the firm’s successful representation of the creditors’ committee in the Chapter 11 cases for this live events conglomerate that produces electronic dance music festivals worldwide. A chapter 11 reorganization plan was confirmed on a consensual basis and the company was reorganized. On behalf of the creditors’ committee, the firm successfully preserved valuable litigation claims that are now being pursued. The firm also represents the committee of unsecured tort claimant creditors of TK Holdings, the domestic subsidiary of Takata, the Japanese automotive parts company at the center of the auto industry’s largest safety recall in history. The company, overwhelmed by lawsuits and recall costs over faulty airbag inflators, filed for bankruptcy protection as a result of the scandal. Claimants injured by the defective airbags, which have been linked to 16 deaths and hundreds of injuries, will be allowed to challenge restructuring plans that they deem to be protective of automakers. Clients address the firm as “efficient, responsive, aggressive and imaginative,” with one going on to specify, “Pachulski has a deep, perhaps unparalleled expertise and background in highly contentious and complicated matters. The firm can access this experience base for their clients.” Managing partner Dean Ziehl, who splits his time between the Los Angeles and New York offices, represents the chair of the board of trustees overseeing the PAH litigation trust. Physiotherapy Associates was the largest pure-play provider of outpatient therapy services in the United States with over 1500 clinicians and 581 rehabilitation, orthotics, and prosthetics clinics in 29 states and the District of Columbia. Ziehl also represents the chair of the board of trustees overseeing the liquidation of the Adelphia Communications estate and the prosecution of litigation claims held by the Adelphia Recovery Trust, a public Delaware grantor trust. Adelphia was the fifth largest cable company in the U.S. before filing for bankruptcy after accounting scandals revealed $2.3 billion of off- balance-sheet debt.
