Supreme Court Hears Oral Argument in Jevic on Whether Distribution of Settlement Proceeds May Depart From Statutory Priority Scheme
Doug Mintz is a first call for energy, commodities and public finance restructuring.
Doug has deep experience representing lenders, debtors and official and ad hoc committees. He works primarily with bank and hedge fund investors and co-leads Orrick’s hedge fund client initiative.
Chambers USA rates him in Band 3, calling him “a shining star . . . able to apply both a legal mindset and a businessperson’s mindset to distressed situations.” Doug has also been recognized by Legal 500 as an “excellent performer” for his work in both Municipal Bankruptcy and Corporate Restructuring.
Doug also represents debtors in the Energy and Technology sectors.
Prior to joining Orrick, Doug was special counsel at Cadwalader, where he was best known for his representation of the United States Treasury in the bankruptcies of both General Motors and Chrysler (M&A Advisor’s Magnus Deal of the Year). Treasury also retained Doug in the restructuring of several financial institutions.
Doug is currently representing hedge funds in a variety of energy and public finance situations – as well as in litigation in the Caesars bankruptcy case. He also served recently as debtor’s counsel to an off shore drilling company, Lily Robotics and bondholders in several distressed energy and infrastructure situations.
