Insolvency Expert in Revenue Bonds
An insolvency expert in revenue bonds was needed for a securities case. The plaintiffs were bondholders who held revenue bonds that had been issued by the defendants to finance acquisition of a medical facility and pay for related expenses. When the facility became insolvent and defendants announced it would close, plaintiffs alleged that the defendants’ negligence, mismanagement, breaches of contract, and breaches of fiduciary duty led to the bonds having little or no value.
IMS ExpertServices was asked to locate experts in high risk revenue bonds who could opine on insolvency issues. An expert who had written about deepening insolvency, or someone who had worked in turnaround management, would be considered a strong candidate. Someone with prior testimony experience in bankruptcy litigation was also preferred.
