Blum Collins Retainer Agreements

If you have received a retainer agreement via e-mail from Blum Collins please make sure you’ve reviewed it, signed it and sent it back (either snail mail, fax or scan and e-mail).

If you would like to receive a retainer agreement for your review and be included in the class action suit, please contact me or email Blum Collins at or

Note: you do not need to sign a retainer agreement to ultimately become part of the class action.  In the near future there will be a class certification process and everyone will have the ability to “opt out” of the class if that is their desire.

    What would be the purpose of the retainer agreement if we are already going to have the option to opt-out? I’m confused.

    So why did I get a status report and a proof of claim form from Felderstein Fitzgerald Willoughby & Pascuzzi ?

    I too received the same report and form…is this separate from Blum Collins?

    I also received the Felderstein et al. “Official Committee of Unsecured Credtiors’ First Interim Status Report,” dated Feb. 27, 2009, which contained an Exhibit A. That exhibit was a proof of claim form.

    The official committee tellingly does NOT include a representative of the employee class. The status report describes the committee as composed of five entitites, including Williams Lea and a former shareholder. These five entities hired Felderstein to represent them in bankruptcy court against the Heller Ehrman estate.

    My understanding is that Blum Collins is trying to work with the bankruptcy court to get an employee representative added to the unsecured creditors’ committee. Does anyone have an update on that effort?

    The status report from the committee – from the Felderstein firm — has nothing to do with Blum Collins. As far as I know, every creditor got a mailed copy of the status report.

    The five committee members chose the Felderstein firm. But don’t be confused: the Felderstein firm does not represent just those five entities. The committee, by law, represents all of the unsecured creditors. That includes us.
