Opioid Industry Bankruptcy

Gilbert’s work to combat the opioid crisis has extended to the bankruptcy arena.

In 2019, Gilbert was appointed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York as counsel to the ad hoc committee of supporting governmental entities In re: Purdue Pharma LP, the bankruptcy proceedings arising out of Purdue’s role in contributing to the opioid crisis.

The Purdue bankruptcy is one of several opioid matters in which Gilbert is involved, including the MDL proceedings in Ohio as well as state and sovereign Indian tribe litigation against opioid manufacturers, distributors, chain retailers and others seeking remediation and damages for the U.S. opioid crisis.
