Erin Brady focuses her practice on the representation of debtors, creditors’ committees, trustees, individual creditors, and others in high-stakes bankruptcy litigation and corporate restructurings.
Erin has taken a leading role in many significant litigation matters. In recent years, she successfully represented 430 individual lending institutions in the Adelphia Communications bankruptcy case, defending the lenders against more than $4.5 billion in preference, fraudulent conveyance, equitable subordination, and equitable disallowance claims. Prior to joining Jones Day, she successfully represented the post-confirmation trust of Fleming Companies, Inc. in district court and appellate litigation involving claims of copyright infringement, trade secret misappropriation, and RICO brought against it by a software developer.
Erin also has represented the chapter 7 trustee of Axium International—an entertainment payroll services provider—in two significant matters. The first matter involved an investigation and settlement of complex avoidance and state law claims against Axium's former secured lenders resulting in more than $30 million in value for the bankruptcy estate. The second matter involved claims asserted against the estate by the Internal Revenue Service, resulting in a settlement that eliminated more than $188 million in federal tax claims in exchange for a $2 million cash settlement payment.
Erin currently represents the Royal Bank of Scotland in defending against approximately $750 million in fraudulent transfer and other claims brought against it by the chapter 7 trustee of the Thornburg Mortgage bankruptcy estate. She also has extensive experience in restructurings and asset sales.
Erin is a member of the State Bar of California and American Bankruptcy Institute.
