Vision Care Company - Bankruptcy Asset Dispute
2007

Representation of a major national vision care company (a purchaser of a Chapter 11 debtor-franchisor’s assets), in a Bankruptcy Court Adversary Proceeding. The action arose in connection with certain franchisee notes the Chapter 11 debtor previously assigned to a factor as collateral security. On a motion for summary judgment, the court found in favor of the client, declaring it (rather than the factor) to be the rightful owner of franchisee notes and that the client was entitled to recover the residual value of the notes from the factor. (In re Sterling Optical Corp., 371 B.R. 680 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. 2007).) (Prior firm experience)
