Municipal Insolvency

Orson and Brusini was lead insolvency counsel to the Central Falls receiver and the State of Rhode Island in the Chapter 9 bankruptcy of the City of Central Falls. In that case, Central Falls went from a fiscal disaster to fiscally stable in just 13 months. This was just the second Chapter 9 case of a city since 2000 and it garnered significant national attention. Mr. Orson is regularly sought by the national and international press to comment on municipal insolvency including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Bond Buyer and the British Broadcasting Corporation. Mr. Orson is also widely published and is invited to speak on panels nationwide on the subject of Chapter 9.
