Ascent Resources Marcellus Holdings, LLC and its affiliated debtors were formed to acquire, explore for, develop, produce, and operate natural gas and oil properties in the Marcellus Shale basin, one of the largest shale plays in the United States encompassing over 30 million acres across four states in the eastern U.S.  The debtors commenced their chapter 11 cases to obtain approval of a prepackaged plan of reorganization meant to not only reduce debt, but also maintain the underlying value of the debtors’ businesses and position the debtors for future growth.  The prepackaged plan of reorganization was approved 45 days after the commencement of the chapter 11 cases and significantly de-levered the debtors through a debt for equity conversion while providing general unsecured creditors with a 100% recovery.  Young Conaway was retained to represent the Debtors, as co-counsel to Sullivan & Cromwell.

Woodbridge Group of Companies, LLC

On December 4, 2017, the Woodbridge Group of Companies, LLC and its affiliated debtors commenced chapter 11 cases, which arose out of a massive, multi-year Ponzi scheme perpetrated between (at least) 2012 and 2017.  As part of this fraud, the debtors raised over one billion dollars from approximately 10,000 investors, while amassing a significant portfolio of high-end real estate properties, the total estimated value of which is still being determined but which range individually in value from approximately $50,000 to over $100,000,000 per property.  The goal of the chapter 11 cases is to maximize recoveries to investors and other constituencies harmed by the Ponzi scheme.  In order to accomplish this goal, the debtors developed a plan of liquidation that memorializes a settlement reached with various investor and creditor parties in interest in consultation with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  The debtors are working diligently to confirm the plan and make initial distributions prior to the end of 2018.  Young Conaway was retained to represent the Debtors as co-counsel working with Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP and Klee, Tuchin, Bogdanoff & Stern LLP.
