Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Douglas G. Leney is a partner in our litigation department, concentrating his practice in matters involving bankruptcy and corporate restructuring, and debtor/creditor rights. Doug is a trusted advisor capable of delivering creative solutions for debtors, trustees, creditors' committees, unsecured creditors, and secured creditors in Chapter 11 reorganization and liquidation cases, Chapter 7 cases, and related adversary proceedings, including avoidance actions involving claims of preferences and fraudulent transfers, as well as complex proceedings involving breaches of fiduciary duties by former officers and directors. Doug also represents various parties in non-bankruptcy state and federal court matters, ranging from commercial disputes and foreclosures to cases arising under various statutory regimes, including the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA). He has significant experience in representing banks, private lenders, and asset-based lenders in connection with loan inception and closing, as well as workouts and forbearance, inter-creditor arrangements, and related litigation. In conjunction with Archer's Corporate Department, Doug issues legal opinions related to commercial lending transactions, including non-consolidation and "true sale" opinions. Doug has been recognized for his representation of various constituencies in bankruptcy cases arising under Chapter 15 of the Bankruptcy Code, which was enacted by Congress to facilitate cross-border insolvency proceedings. His unique experience includes, among other international engagements, acting as counsel to the Liquidating Plan Trustee in a Chapter 15 transfer pricing trial and successfully defeating a $12 million tax claim. More recently, Doug was counsel to the foreign representative and obtained recognition in the first Chapter 15 case involving a debtor from mainland China, and also served as counsel to the foreign representatives in prevailing in contested recognition proceedings involving what is believed to be the first Chapter 15 case to consider such issues in the context of a Hong Kong voluntary liquidation.
