Marissa has represented:

  • Lenders of $725 million to SunEdison, once the world’s largest renewable energy company, in actions against KPMG for misrepresentation of internal controls over financial reporting, and Deutsche Bank Securities, Inc. for fraudulent inducement.
  • Private equity firm Lovell Minnick in a lawsuit presenting significant questions about the liability of private equity firms for acquisitions by their portfolio companies.

  • Ambac Assurance Corporation, a financial guarantee insurance company, in connection with Puerto Rico’s restructuring proceeding under Title III.
  • The Official Committee of Equity Securities Holders of Garrett Motion Inc., a manufacturer of turbochargers, in its Chapter 11 cases. Glenn Agre, on behalf of the equity committee, objected to the debtors’ proposed Chapter 11 plan, which would have left minority shareholders with nearly worthless stock subordinated to billions in obligations to other shareholders. The equity committee’s efforts to guaranty equal treatment to all shareholders resulted in a mediation that led to the negotiation of a consensual Chapter 11 plan, giving minority shareholders significantly enhanced recoveries in the form of the right to receive convertible preferred stock or a cash payout.
  • Fairfax Financial Holdings, a property and casualty insurance and reinsurance company, as a senior creditor and DIP lender in the Chapter 11 cases of EXCO Resources and its affiliates.
  • A private investment fund in multiyear, multi-forum litigation to recoup its investments in a defrauded corporation and defeat third-party claims.
  • Investment bankers in defending against fraudulent transfer claims related to the collapse of the Stanford Financial Group.
  • Former executives and officers in a federal action against Nikko Asset Management and its CEO alleging a scheme to manipulate an employee stock option plan and deprive former employees of their stock option rights.
