Rishi Kapoor is a partner in Venable’s New York office and a member of the Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights Group. Rishi’s practice focuses on a variety of complex litigation, both in and outside the bankruptcy context, as well as representing clients in mediation and advising on pre-litigation disputes.

He advises commercial lenders and creditors, asset managers, investment banks, and other sophisticated corporate entities on a wide range of issues arising out of investment, financing, derivatives, and real estate-related transactions.

Rishi represents clients in all aspects of the Chapter 11 process, including first-day motions, relief from the automatic stay, 363 sales, claims litigation, avoidance actions based on preferential or fraudulent transfers, and plan confirmation.

As part of the firm’s Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities (CMBS) servicing team, Rishi frequently works with CMBS trusts and special servicers on single asset real estate bankruptcies, intercreditor disputes, foreclosure and guaranty actions, receiverships, lender-liability actions, UCC sales of mezzanine interests, and workouts, modifications and sales of CMBS loans.

Rishi also advises financial institutions in disputes relating to complex financial transactions, including those arising out of the issuance and redemption of credit-linked notes and the close-out of derivatives transactions with insolvent counterparties.

Experience :
