Partner John Melko Discusses the Impact of Falling Oil Prices with Law360

01.23.15

Law360 spoke with Gardere Partner John P. Melko, chair of the Firm's Financial Restructuring and Reorganization Practice Group, about things attorneys should watch for as oil prices continue to plunge such as distressed asset sales and even bankruptcies.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
