Second Circuit Affirms Sabine: New Focus on Horizontal Privity Requirement May Affect Oil and Gas Gathering Agreement Terms
Doug Mintz is a first call for energy, commodities, technology 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. Doug also represents debtors in the Energy and Technology sectors.
Doug is currently representing hedge funds in a variety of energy and public finance situations – and recently did so in litigation in the Caesars bankruptcy case. He also served recently as debtor’s counsel to Ocean Rig in its global restructuring and Lily Robotics and bondholders in several distressed energy and infrastructure situations.
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 named a Next Generation lawyer by Legal 500, noting he is an “excellent performer” for his work in both Municipal Bankruptcy and Corporate Restructuring.
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.
