Section 1114 Retiree Benefits Representation

Bankruptcy law provides special protection to retiree medical benefits, including limited protections from changes during and in the 180 days before a Chapter 11 case.  Today's aging population and economic crisis in cyclical industries has caused retirees to need counsel for retiree committees or organizations to protect their medical benefits, a critical need but also a large cost many reorganizing companies seek to reduce.

In the last several years, we have developed an active practice representing 1114 committees and protecting the medical benefits of retired workers.  Using the tools set forth in the US Bankruptcy Code, our teams have successfully represented retired workers in the airline, automotive, manufacturing and public sectors of the US economy.
