Andy Tarr's litigation practice focuses on bankruptcy and creditors' rights. He also handles a broader range of disputes, including those involving corporate contracts, fiduciary duties, fraud, unfair trade practices and real estate. Additionally, Andy helps clients resolve financial disputes through consensual out-of-court restructurings, and he represents purchasers of assets from financially distressed companies, particularly through the Section 363 bankruptcy sale process.

Andy recently secured dismissal on the pleadings of multimillion-dollar fraudulent transfer and preference claims asserted by a bankruptcy litigation trustee against an international manufacturing company in the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. He also was trial counsel for a major regional state-chartered bank in a multiparty lawsuit involving breach of fiduciary duty and unfair trade practices claims arising from administration of a trust. The lawsuit was pending in the North Carolina Business Court and settled during trial.
