Darryl Laddin Discusses Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Cases in Natural Products Insider Article

AGG Bankruptcy partner Darryl Laddin was quoted in an October 19, 2022, Natural Products Insider article titled, “Redcon1 Dodges Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Fight.” The article discusses a matter in which three creditors led by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Inc. filed an involuntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition against Redcon1, raising questions about its financial health.
