About me

Barbara Wohlrabe has extensive experience in federal, state, and bankruptcy court litigation involving a variety of commercial and tort claims.

She teamed with David Elrod in the successful appeal that vacated the confirmation of a substantially consummated plan of reorganization in Southern Pacific Transportation Co. v. Voluntary Purchasing Groups, Inc. She also worked with David Elrod to defend a reorganized debtor against claims totaling in excess of $1.1 billion, resulting in a negotiated settlement of less than 3% of the amount sought against the debtor. In the early part of her legal career, she was involved in the successful appeal of Barr v. Resolution Trust Corp., a frequently cited case in which the Texas Supreme Court clarified the law of res judicata. More recently, she was involved in the prosecution of creditor claims in the Calpine bankruptcy case in New York, which resulted in the firm's negotiation of settlements in excess of $400 million for its pipeline clients.
