Anthony Davis Authors Article on Conflicting Decisions Regarding the "Unfinished Business" Doctrine
Anthony E. Davis, a Partner in the New York office of Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP, authored the article "More on Law Firms, Bankruptcy and 'Unfinished Business,'" which appeared in the November 2, 2012, edition of The New York Law Journal. In it, Mr. Davis revisits the "unfinished business" doctrine -- which he addressed in an earlier article "'Unfinished Business' - Expanding Hurdle to Lateral Hiring" -- in light of a recent decision by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York that directly conflicts with the holding in the case discussed in that prior article.
Mr. Davis is a member of Hinshaw's Lawyers for the Profession® practice group and focuses on the laws that govern lawyers. He advises attorneys and law firms on legal professional and ethics issues, law firm creation, merger and dissolution, risk management and loss control. He is a member of the New York City Bar's Professional Ethics Committee; a Fellow of the College of Law Practice Management; a member of the American Law Institute; and a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation.
