In a 1988 bankruptcy filing by Finley, Kumble, Wagner, Heine, Underberg, Manley, Myerson & Casey; Zauderer represented a senior partner from the firm against a clawback claim from the firm. Zauderer has represented law firms regarding partnership disputes and has worked as special litigation counsel in bankruptcy courts. It was confirmed by Zauderer that he is going to work with Andrew Eckstein, a restructuring parent from Blank Rome in New York. Eckstein worked with Citibank when it dissolved Thelen and Thacher Proffitt & Wood. He also worked with the bank when it dissolved Howrey. Also representing a group of former partners is that of Tracy Klestadt, from Klestadt & Winters.

It was reported by The Wall Street Journal on May 18 that Dewey could be preparing to file for bankruptcy in the coming weeks. A senior managing director from Zolfo Cooper, Joff Mitchell, confirmed that he is the firm’s chief restructuring officer.
