Patrick Darby Quoted in Business Alabama Article Regarding Bet-the-Company Litigation

Bankruptcy attorney Patrick Darby was recently quoted in the Business Alabama article “Your Company on the Line,” exploring the high-stakes world of bet-the company litigation through examination of cases handled by Alabama attorneys. The article focuses on Darby’s involvement with Jefferson County’s Chapter 9 bankruptcy case, “the largest successful case of its kind in American history.”

“When you put a company into Chapter 11, the very existence of the company is in play every single time,” says Darby. “It’s not litigation in the classic Perry Mason style, where you have a trial with a jury and a judge, but you are in a federal court litigating with various parties quite specifically and explicitly over the existence of the company that’s in Chapter 11.”
