Gardere Client Wins Chapter 15 Bid in Bankruptcy Case


Law360 covered a Texas federal bankruptcy judge's approval of Japan-based bitcoin exchange, Mt. Gox, in its petition for Chapter 15 bankruptcy. This decision will provide the exchange some protection in United States court while it continues its primary insolvency proceedings in Tokyo court.

Mt. Gox filed its U.S. bankruptcy petition in March, needing to halt two pending lawsuits in the U.S. while it sorted out its financial affairs through its main bankruptcy proceeding in Tokyo.

Gardere Attorneys Marcus Helt and Thomas C. Scannell represented Nobuaki Kobayashi, Mt. Gox's foreign representative. Mt. Gox's foreign representative is also represented by a team of attorneys from Brown Rudnick LLP in New York, NY.

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.
