Firm helps clients solve union issues, confirm plan – June 2019

On June 4, 2019, the Honorable Caryl E. Delano of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida, Tampa Division, entered an order confirming the Chapter 11 plan filed by Pop’s Painting, Inc. and Pop’s Coatings, Inc. The Pop’s companies are owned by Mark Woods and his sons, respectively, who are second and third generation in the painting business. Before the filing, the companies were mired in litigation with union benefit funds over claimed contribution liabilities. The Chapter 11 allowed the companies time to address the benefit funds’ claims, and resulted in a consensual confirmed plan that allows the two companies to continue, with Pop’s Painting remaining a signatory party to, and Pop’s Coatings not subject to any claims under, the collective bargaining agreement. Daniel Fogarty led the firm’s representation of the Debtors.
