New York Law Firm, Dreier, LLP, Files Chapter 11 After Name Partner is Arrested

Dreier, LLP, known locally as Dreier, Stein, Kahan, Browne, Woods, George, was taken over by a Receiver on December 10, 2008 after its founder, Marc Dreier, was arrested and charged with various securities violations.  The receiver filed chapter 11 on December 16, 2008 in New York and asked the bankruptcy court to appoint a chapter 11 trustee.  The First Day Declaration of the Receiver can be accessed hereThe Motion to Appoint the trustee is here.  The US Trustee has proposed Sheila M. Gowan as the trustee.  At the first day hearing, the receiver commented that "there are only 17 employees remaining at Dreier, two of whom, are employees," so it's a little difficult to determine who or what is included in the proceeding.

Comments

MADOFF + STANFORD = PROSKAUER ROSE
Did I hear Proskauer Rose is involved in Madoff (involved a lot of clients too) and acted as Allen Stanford's attorney. Investors who lost money in these scams should start looking at the law firm Proskauer's assets for recovery. First, Proskauer partner Gregg Mashberg claims Madoff is a financial 9/11 for their clients. Then, Proskauer partner Thomas Sjoblom former enforcement dude for SEC and Allen Stanford attorney, declares PARTY IS OVER to Stanford employees and advises them to PRAY, this two days before SEC hearings. Then at hearings he lies with Holt to SEC saying she only prepared with him but fails to mention Miami meeting at airport hanger. Then Sjoblom resigns after SEC begins investigation and sends note to SEC disaffirming all statements made by he and Proskauer, his butt on fire.

Proskauer Rose and Foley and Lardner are also in a TRILLION dollar FEDERAL LAWSUIT legally related to a WHISTLEBLOWER CASE also in FEDERAL COURT. Marc S. Dreier is also a defendant in the Federal Case.

The Trillion Dollar suit according to judge Shira Scheindlin is one of PATENT THEFT, MURDER AND A CAR BOMBING. For graphics on the car bombing visit www.iviewit.tv.
