August 11, 2017

John C. La Liberte, chair of the firm’s Bankruptcy and Creditor Rights Group, was quoted  in a Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly article, entitled “Debtor permitted to boost value of PI claim in bankruptcy,” on July 27, 2017, in regards to the case Law v. Siegel.

From the article: 

John C. La Liberte agreed that Panos reached the correct result based on Siegel. The Boston practitioner pointed out that Hoover is also consistent with the liberal rule of allowing amendments to complaints followed by federal and state courts generally.

“If you file a complaint, there’s a permissive standard typically applied to amendments,” La Liberte said. “If an opposing party cannot show meaningful prejudice, most courts will allow the amendment.”
