Happy New Year

I hope that 2009 brings all of us what we need as well as what we desire.  Much has taken place over the past three and a half months and some of us don’t want to look back.  This is understandable.

In the new year followers of Heller Highwater can count on frequent communication and updates on the bankruptcy process as well as helpful tools for filing taxes (you didn’t forget did you?)  and making it through 2009.

And this Friday you’ll see posts on how to file a proof of claim in the bankruptcy process, how to join the newly formed Employees’ Committee as well as other information.  

The bankruptcy court and the Heller Dissolution Committee must face the fact that the  former employees of Heller Ehrman who are owed money as a group constitute one of the largest unsecured creditors in this process.   We don’t intend to be out-maneuvered or under represented.  And much of that depends on your participation.

I look forward to traveling down this road with you over the next few months and years.  Have a great New Year!!!

    Happy New Year, Thomas.

    Thanks for all your efforts to keep us informed. It is greatly appreciated.

    I consider myself to be in the “don’t look back” camp. It would be nice if everyone upheld the law and met their obligations. But at this point I’ve moved on from the NEED. I hope that no other ex-Heller employees are experiencing a need for what is owed them or lack of employment.

    Good luck to everyone and excellent fortune in the new year!

    Where do I found out about the newly formed Employees Committee? I am in NY, if there is anything I can do to help, in any way, please let me know. Once again, thanks for all of your efforts.

Heller Highwater is not:

- a place to practice viscious and vindictive "whisper down the lane" rumour-mongering;

- a place to bad mouth co-workers;

- a place for diatribes against specific people or specific incidents;

- a place to heap pity on poor Heller Ehrman staff by outsiders;

- meant to further the demise of Heller Ehrman, LLP.

Heller Highwater is:

- a place for support, a place of empowerment, a place of passion;

- a place to learn about job leads, resume preparation, skill building, training, new opportunities, and how to succeed in a new workplace;

- a place to keep up on the latest news as to how Heller Ehrman management intends to treat its support staff as it winds down its operations - will it be every woman for herself? or will it be "let me hold the door for you and is there anything else I can do for you"?

- a place of refuge.
