Gardere Represents Japanese Trustee in Bankruptcy Case


Law360 covered bitcoin company CoinLab Inc.'s agreement to support U.S. bankruptcy protection for Mt. Gox Co. Ltd., after making a deal with the defunct Japanese bitcoin exchange to protect CoinLab's claims in the case. Mt. Gox and CoinLab entered into a joint stipulation that outlined protections for CoinLab, including CoinLab's objections to a proposed reorganization plan that would turn control of Mt. Gox over to investor group Sunlot Holdings Ltd.

"Sunlot would effectively replace the bankruptcy proceeding with its own privately controlled process, and would largely assume the role held by Nobuaki Kobayashi, the trustee in the debtor's Japanese bankruptcy case, as to substantially all estate assets – for the benefit of only select depositors as determined by Sunlot," CoinLab said.

Gardere Attorneys Marcus Helt and Thomas C. Scannell represented Nobuaki Kobayashi.

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.


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.
