INTRODUCTION
1.
 
As more fully described in this Cash Collateral Motion and thedeclaration of Jonathan A. Mitchell in support of this Cash Collateral Motion (the“Mitchell Declaration”), and the First Day Declaration (defined below), after extensiveefforts to engage in a strategic transaction with a third party that would have preservedthe core of the Debtor as an operating law firm, the Firm determined to file for Chapter11 protection to facilitate the wind down of its business and affairs.2.
 
While no longer operating as a global law firm, DL, as a debtor-inpossession, continues in control of its remaining operations and management of itsproperty pursuant to sections 1107(a) and 1108 of the Bankruptcy Code. Accordingly,DL requires the use of cash collateral to pay various ongoing expenses to facilitate thewind-down, including the funding of employee payroll, insurance, file storage, and rent

3in accordance with an agreed upon budget (the “Budget”) attached as Exhibit “A” tothe Interim Order. Paying these expenses is critical for the Debtor to continue tosuccessfully wind down its business and affairs and to maximize the value of theDebtor’s assets for all creditors.3.
 
The ability of the Debtor to finance and continue its operationsrequires the use of Cash Collateral, absent which serious, immediate and irreparableharm will result to the Debtor, its estate and its creditors. The Debtor does not havesufficient available sources of working capital and financing to operate its business inthe ordinary course of business or to maintain its property without the use of CashCollateral. The relief requested in this Cash Collateral Motion is therefore necessary,essential, and appropriate for the continued operation of the Debtor’s business and themanagement and preservation of its property.4.
 
The Debtor’s Prepetition Secured Lenders (defined below) andDebtor have negotiated at arms’ length and in good faith regarding the Debtor’s use ofCash Collateral to fund the continued operation of the Debtor’s business during theSpecified Period (as defined below). The Prepetition Secured Lenders have agreed topermit the Debtor to use their Cash Collateral for the Specified Period, subject to theterms and conditions set forth in the proposed Interim Order, which terms andconditions are fair and reasonable and have been agreed to by the Debtor in the exerciseof its sound business judgment.5.
 
The Debtor’s Prepetition Secured Lenders are the only creditorsknown by the Debtor to have an interest in the Cash Collateral, and they haveconsented to the use of Cash Collateral in accordance with the terms of the proposedInterim Order and the Budget, subject to the grant of adequate protection as described below.
