Greenberg in hot water over Heller representation
Greenberg Traurig is facing a malpractice investigation by the Heller Ehrman estate, according to court filings and a lawyer representing Heller's creditors committee, writes The Recorder. At issue is Greenberg's apparent failure to discover that Heller's biggest creditor, Bank of America (BoA), had terminated its security interest in the firm. Lawyers familiar with the matter say that Heller, which retained Greenberg last summer, would have had much better leverage with its banks and other creditors if it had known BoA was not a secured creditor and may have even been able to avoid bankruptcy.
