His experience includes advising debtors in out-of-court processes and in-court restructurings across a broad range of industries, including energy, manufacturing, television and radio broadcasting, and financial services.
Mr. Hufendick has played a role on a number of teams advising:
- UTEX Industries, Inc., the market-leading sealing component design and manufacturing firm, and its debtor-affiliates in their prepackaged restructuring addressing more than $700 million of funded debt. UTEX’s restructuring involved, among other things, a first-in-kind resolution of highly complex tax arrangements between UTEX and certain non-debtor affiliates pursuant to a fast-tracked prepackaged chapter 11 plan that was confirmed by the Bankruptcy Court within 14 days of UTEX filing for chapter 11.

- Exide Holdings, Inc. and it’s affiliated debtors, a global lead-acid batteries manufacturing company, in their chapter 11 cases. In just 5 months, Exide completed two going concern sale and separation transactions for its U.S. and European/Rest of World businesses (including the negotiation of long-term commercial arrangements among them) and also accomplished a first of its kind global settlement with the Department of Justice and more than 10 state regulators to resolve hundreds of millions of dollars of Exide’s historical environmental liabilities at more than 20 dormant locations.
