He represents public and private corporations, private individuals and entrepreneurs before federal and state courts. He has wide-ranging experience handling fiduciary duty, fraud, corporate control, shareholder, investment, lending and intellectual property disputes. Jody served as lead trial counsel in bankruptcy courts across the country on behalf of debtors, unsecured creditors’ committees, hedge funds, private equity funds, secured lenders, stalking horse bidders, commercial landlords and equity holders.

Jody frequently manages complex, multi-tiered litigation situations, balancing the competing interests of litigants, investigators and courts across borders, venues and disciplines. Jody's experience in insolvency litigation extends to cases outside and within the bankruptcy courts, including adversary proceedings and contested matters in the course of Chapter 11 proceedings. His accomplishments include obtaining an order of specific performance after trial in Delaware to force an overseas buyer to close on its acquisition of the Debtors’ assets and defeating a plan of reorganization on behalf of the equity holder of a Tier One auto supplier following a five-month trial in Michigan. He has represented hedge funds and bondholders in pursuit of claims valued in the billions of dollars against multinational corporations associated with cross-border tax structures. Jody has both sued and represented directors and officers in claims arising out of distressed situations.
