Larry brings both breadth and depth to the practice of bankruptcy, workouts, and commercial litigation. He has played every position on the field, representing debtors and creditors alike, in courtroom proceedings and boardroom negotiations. Among his debtor clients are real estate and hotel developers, business entrepreneurs, and commercial enterprises in Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganizations, liquidations and out-of-court restructurings. His creditor clients include lenders and unsecured creditors’ committees. As a complement to his work as a party advocate, Larry has been asked to serve as a mediator, an expert witness, a chapter 11 trustee in corporate and individual bankruptcy cases, and a liquidating trustee.

Depth comes from experience, and Larry has been honing his skills for the past forty years. He has applied these skills to a variety of industries, including real estate, retail, health care, hospitality, transportation, and communications. His most memorable experience was representing the committee of unsecured creditors in the chapter 11 case of Howard Delivery Service, Inc., a small West Virginia trucking company. Larry advocated for the rights of the creditors in the case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and succeeded in obtaining a landmark decision regarding creditor priorities in bankruptcy proceedings.

Prior to joining Hirschler Fleischer, Larry was a partner with Leach Travell, Venable LLP, Tucker Flyer P.C., and Zuckerman Spaeder LLP.
