Drew develops and implements innovative solutions for creditors’ committees, secured creditors, equipment finance companies, and financial institutions aimed at protecting clients’ contractual and statutory rights in bankruptcy proceedings and civil litigation across the country.
Drew has served as counsel to creditors’ committees in multiple mass-tort bankruptcy proceedings across the country. As a zealous advocate for survivors, Drew has uncovered unreported estate assets, analyzed complex strategies to liquidate real property and other fixed assets, and negotiated complex plan provisions, such as third-party releases and survivor-trust protocols.
Among his recent successes as an advocate for creditors, Drew assisted a financial institution with navigating a secured creditor dispute as part of a complex agricultural liquidation in the United States Bankruptcy Court in Delaware; defended clients against preference claims; negotiated adequate protection stipulations and conditions of use of cash collateral; obtained relief from automatic stay; and recovered collateral through replevin actions.
Drew’s work is not limited to creditor representation. He has shepherded corporate clients in work outs with secured and unsecured creditors and through court-supervised wind-downs, liquidations, and restructuring proceedings. Drew has also represented receivers, bankruptcy trustees, assignees, and similar fiduciaries in wind-downs, asset sales, claim objections, and adversary litigation.
Drew has also developed a pro bono practice which focuses on advising residential tenants on their rights and remedies in eviction and other housing related litigation. Drew currently chairs the firm's LGBTQ Employee Resource Group where he assists the firm in recruiting and retaining LGBTQ attorneys and staff.
