Rishi Kapoor focuses on complex litigation, within and outside of the bankruptcy context. Rishi represents clients in mediation and assists with pre-litigation disputes. He advises commercial lenders and creditors, asset managers, investment banks, and other sophisticated corporate entities on a wide range of issues arising from investments, financing, derivatives, and real estate-related transactions. He also represents clients in all aspects of the Chapter 11 process, including first-day motions, relief from the automatic stay, 363 sales, claims litigation, avoidance actions based on preferential or fraudulent transfers, and plan confirmation.
Rishi frequently works on commercial mortgage-backed securities services (CMBS) issues – assisting trusts and special servicers on single-asset real estate bankruptcies, intercreditor disputes, foreclosure and guaranty actions, receiverships, lender-liability actions, UCC sales of mezzanine interests, and workouts, modifications, and sales of CMBS loans.
In addition, Rishi advises financial institutions in disputes related to complex financial transactions, including those associated with the issuance and redemption of credit-linked notes, and the close-out of derivatives transactions with insolvent counterparties.
