Or do we have someone that wants to lead an Ad Hoc committee that would represent the current Fisker owners?

I just spoke with the lawyer for the Fisker creditors and he's conflicted with giving us advice or recommending a firm to represent us but he did acknowledge that current Fisker owners may want to hire proper counsel. This is the time to do it for us... as the court is holding an auction, we need a voice to represent our warranty claim as part of the creditor pool. Once we get formal recognition from the court and get a seat at the table, we should back the bid that properly addresses our concerns.

The file is being heard in Delaware but there are many law firms specializing in Bankruptcy cases and most will work on a success fee. I'm in Canada so it wouldn't be good for me to look for a firm here so I'm hoping there are some here on the forums that could give their assistance or insight.

We need to do this ASAP and try to get some media press on it as well.

Cheers,

Pat

There was an effort of owners and one of the member is a lawyer and familiar with the status of the case. I've been a member and vote to spend the needed dollars to pursue a case, but many members felt it was not the best use of dollars - with that said, if you PM me, I'll send you the info and maybe you can rally a group of owners to fund this effort ...

No Funds are Needed for this...

Hi Ninja,
I don't foresee any funds being required to get a lawyer to represent the Fisker Owners Ad Hoc Committee as we should be able to find someone to take it on a success fee basis.

Agreed that it would have to be on a success, or contingent basis with the legal counsel. It can add up quickly, and with a group like ours, it would be very hard to equitably distribute the costs. (Actually, if there is a way to do so equitably, than I would be interested, I just don't know how that could be done).

The problem is, how do we find a lawyer who wants to take this on a contingent basis? Ideas?

I've got a few contacts with some good bankruptcy specialists in the US so I'll try and find a few to choose from. No need to worry about distributing the costs, I think we can get the courts to pay for the expenses if we can demonstrate that we are a legitimate group that represents Fisker Owners and quite honestly, we can affect the outcome of the company post re-org. Since debtors will most likely be equity owners, they should choose wisely as to how they deal with us as we can definitely affect the company going forward as the only group of people who actually bought the product. So far they have been very helpful and forthcoming and I believe that if we had an official group formed liasing through a few leaders, that a lot of good can come from this. Even though we would be classified as GUC's, the amount is large enough that you might as well build a fence around it through re-org than to have it as some unknown (either substantiated by the courts or not... either way, we still have tremendous impact potential).

I am quite sure my fellow Belgian and Dutch owners will support this.
