Howrey Creditors Seek Involuntary Chapter 7 Bankruptcy for Law Firm


Three creditors to whom Howrey allegedly owes a total of less than $40,000 have filed a petition in the Northern District of California seeking an involuntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy for Howrey, reports the Am Law Daily.

The law firm dissolved last month following an attorney exodus.

Bankruptcy partner Peter Gilhuly of Latham & Watkins, who has been representing Howrey, declined to comment when contacted by the legal publication.
