About the Speakers

Jeffrey Cohen, Esq. and  Nicole Fulfree, Esq.

Jeffrey Cohen
A trusted advisor to unsecured creditors, creditors' committees, and distressed companies, Jeff's tenacious counsel adds steady momentum to our growing client base in retail bankruptcy and is a strong resource to distressed clients in the technology sector. His practice centers on Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganizations and related litigation. Current representations include the creditors’ committees in Gibson Guitar, Gander Mountain, and Vitamin World; individual creditors Under Armour and Estée Lauder in Bon-Ton Stores Chapter 11, Estée Lauder in Sears Canada proceedings, National Football League in Cumulus Media Chapter 11, and participant lenders in Toys “R” Us and Tops Markets Chapter 11 cases.

Jeff often provides advice to private equity-sponsored and venture capital-backed distressed investors, representing boards of directors and management in the out-of-court wind down or distressed M&A process in the following industries: health care, internet-connected home devices, digital content delivery websites, and digital advertisement and content delivery through television and alternative media.

As a certified bankruptcy mediator and an approved fee examiner by the U.S. Trustee for Region 3, Jeff most recently served on the Official Fee Review Committee in the Adelphia Communications bankruptcy cases and as the fee examiner in the Endeavour Operating Chapter 11 case. Jeff also recently served as mediator in the Digital Domain Chapter 11 cases in adversary proceedings involving preferential transfers and fraudulent conveyance actions.

Nicole Fulfree
Nicole represents debtors, creditors' committees, trustees, individual creditors, and institutional shareholders and investors in a variety of complex bankruptcy matters. Her extensive experience, earned in part by working on three major coal industry bankruptcies, translates into a clear understanding of the right strategies for clients seeking to restructure. From litigating adversary proceedings and other contested matters to representing class action plaintiffs within both the Chapter 11 and Chapter 7 contexts, Nicole brings strategic judgment to bear in developing optimal solutions.

Nicole maintains a focus on clients’ objectives while addressing their concerns and incorporating their specific goals into the problem-solving process. Clients appreciate her responsiveness, approachability, and listening skills, and they value her role as an efficient communicator who responds to their needs immediately. Level-headed, practical, and hardworking, Nicole is notably calm under pressure and dedicated to striking the right balance between advocating aggressively for her clients and realizing the right result on their behalf.

An enthusiastic pro bono participant, Nicole has assisted with three Chapter 7 cases as well as an out-of-court restructuring for a nonprofit organization. Prior to joining the firm, Nicole clerked for the Hon. Donald H. Steckroth of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey. Previously, she served as an intern for the Hon. Anne M. Patterson of the Supreme Court of New Jersey.
