Partner Flaxer Appointed Chapter 11 Trustee of Lehr Construction Corp. by UST

On May 16, 2011, Partner Jonathan L. Flaxer was appointed Chapter 11 trustee of Lehr Construction Corp. by the United States Trustee and approved by the Bankruptcy Court. Flaxer will complete the wind-down of the business of Lehr, lead investigations and if appropriate, pursue claims to recover funds for the benefit of creditors.

Lehr filed for Chapter 11 in February 2011 in light of an ongoing investigation by the Manhattan district attorney’s office. In April 2011, four principals of Lehr were indicted, spurring the UST to seek the appointment of a trustee.
