Christian Brothers Declare Bankruptcy

The Congregation of Christian Brothers have filed for bankruptcy on behalf of two corporations that it used to acquire wealth in the United States.  In the last ten years we have represented more survivors of sexual abuse by the Christian Brothers in the United States than any other law firm, and the claims of our clients are what caused the Christian Brothers to file for bankruptcy. 

We anticipate that we will be actively involved with the bankruptcy process.  You can read Seattle sexual abuse attorney Mike Pfau’s perspective on the bankruptcy in a number of the articles that are being written about it, including “Catholic Christian Brothers order files for bankruptcy” by Reuters, “Catholic order files for bankruptcy after settling more than 50 sex abuse claims” by the Daily Mail, and “Beset by sex-abuse lawsuits, Christian Brothers Catholic order files for bankruptcy,” by the Seattle Times.
