City of Detroit Bankruptcy Restructuring

Prior to the City of Detroit's Chapter 9 bankruptcy filing, Miller Canfield's labor team helped the city review all collective bargaining agreements and modify to the extent allowed by the consent agreement with the State of Michigan and the Emergency Manager powers. During bankruptcy, the firm served as local counsel on all matters related to the bankruptcy. 

Post-bankruptcy, the firm is handling numerous matters related to the restructuring, including litigating and negotiating requests for relief from the automatic stay by unions and other parties, handling post-petition financing matters, and assisting with the restructuring of various city departments, including both the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department and the newly created regional Great Lakes Water Authority.
