Yehuda advises investment funds, companies, high net-worth individuals, and other strategic parties on a range of complex litigation matters and complicated problems, often with a cross-border component.  Yehuda also has extensive experience in bondholder and creditors’ rights litigation in both domestic and foreign proceedings.  His public representations include advising key parties in cases such as LATAM Airlines (S.D.N.Y.); Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (D.P.R.); AOG Entertainment (S.D.N.Y.); and Irish Bank Resolution Corporation (D.
