Dewey liquidation plan wins court approval

Judge Martin Glenn said that he was “very pleased” with the firm’s post-bankruptcy efforts

Nearly nine months to the day after it filed for bankruptcy, the defunct law firm Dewey & LeBoeuf has won court approval for its liquidation plan.

Dewey’s troubles began early last year, as one partner after another departed amid rumors of financial trouble and compensation disputes. The collapse was made official on May 28, 2012, when the firm finally filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
