Fairpoint Communications: Bond Restructuring

In this case, we have been retained to serve as local counsel to Stroock & Stroock & Lavan for certain of the bondholders of FairPoint Communications Inc. with regard to restructuring their bonds and more specifically, the Maine PUC regulatory overlay on that restructuring. This is a coordinated effort between the Bankruptcy team (primarily Gayle Allen) and the firm’s Telecommunications/Utilities practice.
