I don’t stray off topic often, but occasionally I do — with a warning like this one. This post is about rather than negotiation or settlement strategy; feel free to scroll to the next post if that’s why you’re here.

On a long plane ride home from New York in 2009 I wrote about BearingPoint, Inc.’s bankruptcy filing and the next steps in the process, which ultimately led to the sale of BearingPoint’s operations memorialized in press releases hereherehere and here.  This post is about the next chapter in the story.

Since late 2009 our team has been hard at work pursuing assets on behalf of the BearingPoint, Inc. Liquidating Trust, and the most significant of those assets is litigation against BearingPoint, Inc.’s former CEO and many of its directors.  To seamlessly and efficiently address requests for information about the case from BearingPoint, Inc.’s former creditors and employees, as well as the press and others, we have just launched, which provides a Case Summary, a copy of the Complaint, Court Filings, Case Updates, News Updates and More. Those interested in the progress of the case can subscribe to its RSS Feed or to its Twitter feed @BELawsuit.

Those having questions or comments about the site should contact John DeGroote at John DeGroote Services, LLC, who is responsible for maintaining the site.
