Massachusetts Court Approves the Appointment of Professionals Utilised By Shamrock in Ordinary Course of Business
October 15, 2021, District of Massachusetts – Honorable Bankruptcy Judge Frank J. Bailey recently approved the application of Debtor Shamrock Finance to retain professionals utilized by Shamrock in the ordinary course of business according to 11 U.S.C. §§§ 327, 330, and 331.
Shamrock previously obtained authority to retain the McNulty Firm as its special litigation counsel. As stated in the Debtor’s motion, from time to time, McNulty requires the assistance of local counsel in jurisdictions outside of Massachusetts to act as local counsel or debt collectors paid on a contingent basis. In this regard, Shamrock customarily retained the services of various attorneys and other professionals to represent it in matters arising in the ordinary course of business (collectively, the “Ordinary Course Professionals”). Before the Debtor’s petition date, Ordinary Course Professionals rendered services to Shamrock consisting of legal representation regarding certain litigation and bankruptcy matters about defaulting customers. Hence, Shamrock wished to continue to employ and retain Ordinary Course Professionals to work with McNulty and render services similar to those rendered before the commencement of the bankruptcy case.
