DRUMMOND WOODSUM HELPS NEGOTIATE SETTLEMENT TO BENEFIT CREDITORS OF THE BANKRUPT GREAT NORTHERN PAPER COMPANY MILL




12/2/2014


Drummond Woodsum helped the bankruptcy trustee for Great Northern Paper Company, Pasquale "Pat" Perrino, negotiate a complex global settlement with the papermaker's lenders, owners, and managers that will yield a substantial dividend to unsecured creditors, including hundreds of small businesses in northern Maine. At the commencement of the bankruptcy case, these creditors stood to receive nothing. With the expertise of Jeremy Fischer, Jeff Piampiano, and Drummond Woodsum's Bankruptcy, Restructuring & Creditors' Rights group, however, the trustee aggressively investigated, negotiated, and settled a broad range of claims, resulting in a court-approved settlement that will provide a $1.34 million recovery to these creditors.
