DEWEY & LEBOEUF: Reports $16.3 Million in July Net Collections
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP collected $20.6 million in
accounts receivable in July, bringing the total to $39.9 million
since the bankruptcy began on May 28.

According to the report, the firm spent $4.3 million in July,
bringing net recoveries in the month to $16.3 million, according
to an operating report filed on Aug.21 with the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in New York.

The report relates that given net collections and $23.6 million
already on hand, Dewey was able to pay $25.7 million to the
secured lender JPMorgan Chase Bank NA during July.  The operating
report doesn't lay out unbilled fees or accounts receivable.  The
balance sheet shows a receivable of $16.4 million representing
disbursements and expenses incurred for clients.

                       About Dewey & LeBoeuf

New York-based law firm Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP sought Chapter 11
bankruptcy (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 12-12321) to complete the
wind-down of its operations.  The firm had struggled with high
debt and partner defections.  Dewey disclosed debt of US$245
million and assets of US$193 million in its chapter 11 filing late
evening on May 29, 2012.

Dewey & LeBoeuf was formed by the 2007 merger of Dewey Ballantine
LLP and LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene & MacRae LLP.  At its peak, Dewey
employed about 2,000 people with 1,300 lawyers in 25 offices
across the globe.  When it filed for bankruptcy, only 150
employees were left to complete the wind-down of the business.

Dewey's offices in Hong Kong and Beijing are being wound down.
The partners of the separate partnership in England are in process
of winding down the business in London and Paris, and
administration proceedings in England were commenced May 28.  All
lawyers in the Madrid and Brussels offices have departed. Nearly
all of the lawyers and staff of the Frankfurt office have
departed, and the remaining personnel are preparing for the
closure.  The firm's office in Sao Paulo, Brazil, is being
prepared for closure and the liquidation of the firm's local
affiliate.  The partners of the firm in the Johannesburg office,
South Africa, are planning to wind down the practice.

The firm's ownership interest in its practice in Warsaw, Poland,
was sold to the firm of Greenberg Traurig PA on May 11 for
US$6 million.  The Pension benefit Guaranty Corp. took
US$2 million of the proceeds as part of a settlement.  The Debtor
disclosed $368,117,240 in assets and $348,817,408 in liabilities
as of the Chapter 11 filing.

Judge Martin Glenn oversees the case.  Albert Togut, Esq., at
Togut, Segal & Segal LLP, represents the Debtor.  Epiq Bankruptcy
Solutions LLC serves as claims and notice agent.  The petition was
signed by Jonathan A. Mitchell, chief restructuring officer.

JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as Revolver Agent on behalf of the
lenders under the Revolver Agreement, hired Kramer Levin Naftalis
& Frankel LLP.  JPMorgan, as collateral agent for the Revolver
Lenders and the Noteholders, hired FTI Consulting and Gulf
Atlantic Capital, as financial advisors.  The Noteholders hired
Bingham McCutchen LLP as counsel.

The U.S. Trustee formed two committees -- one to represent
unsecured creditors and the second to represent former Dewey
partners.  The Former Partners hired lawyers at Kasowitz, Benson,
Torres & Friedman LLP, as counsel.  The Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors tapped Deloitte Financial Advisory Services
LLP as its financial advisor.

LIGHTSQUARED INC: Reported July Loss When Cash Increased
Bill Rochelle, the bankruptcy columnist for Bloomberg News,
reports that LightSquared Inc. filed an operating report this week
with the bankruptcy court in New York showing a net loss in July
of $52.7 million on revenue of $3.1 million.  Interest expense in
the month was $32 million.

According to the report, the cash flow statement contained in the
report reveals that cash grew $13.3 million in the month, to end
at $224.3 million.  LightSquared spent $4 billion developing a
wireless communications systems using earth-based and satellite
technology.  It filed under Chapter 11 in May after the Federal
Communications Commission denied permission to build out the
system from concern it would interfere with reception by global
positioning devices.

                      About LightSquared Inc.

LightSquared Inc. and 19 of its affiliates filed Chapter 11
bankruptcy petitions (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 12-12080) on
May 14, 2012, as the Company seeks to resolve regulatory issues
that have prevented it from building its coast-to-coast integrated
satellite 4G wireless network.

LightSquared had invested more than $4 billion to deploy an
integrated satellite-terrestrial network.  In February 2012,
however, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission told
LightSquared the agency would revoke a license to build out the
network as it would interfere with global positioning systems used
by the military and various industries.  In March 2012, the
Company's partner, Sprint, canceled a master services agreement.
LightSquared's lenders deemed the termination of the Sprint
agreement would trigger cross-defaults under LightSquared's
prepetition credit agreements.

LightSquared and its prepetition lenders attempted to negotiate a
global restructuring that would provide LightSquared with
liquidity and runway necessary to resolve its issues with the FCC.
Despite working diligently and in good faith, however,
LightSquared and the lenders were not able to consummate a global
restructuring on terms acceptable to all interested parties,
prompting the bankruptcy filing.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors employed roughly 168 people
in the United States and Canada.  As of Feb. 29, 2012, the Debtors
had $4.48 billion in assets (book value) and $2.29 billion in

LightSquared also sought ancillary relief in Canada on behalf of
all of the Debtors, pursuant to the Companies' Creditors
Arrangement Act (Canada) R.S.C. 1985, c. C-36 as amended, in the
Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) in Toronto,
Ontario, Canada.  The purpose of the ancillary proceedings is to
request the Canadian Court to recognize the Chapter 11 cases as a
"foreign main proceeding" under the applicable provisions of the
CCAA to, among other things, protect the Debtors' assets and
operations in Canada.  The Debtors named affiliate LightSquared LP
to act as the "foreign representative" on behalf of the Debtors'

Judge Shelley C. Chapman presides over the Chapter 11 case.
Lawyers at Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP serve as counsel to
the Debtors.  Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC serves as claims and
notice agent.

Counsel to UBS AG as agent under the October 2010 facility is
Melissa S. Alwang, Esq., at Latham & Watkins LLP.

The ad hoc secured group of lenders under the Debtors' October
2010 facility was formed in April 2012 to negotiate an out-of-
court restructuring.  The members are Appaloosa Management L.P.;
Capital Research and Management Company; Fortress Investment
Group; Knighthead Capital Management LLC; and Redwood Capital
Management.  Counsel to the ad hoc secured group is Thomas E.
Lauria, Esq., at White & Case LLP.

Philip Falcone's Harbinger Capital Partners indirectly owns 96% of
LightSquared's outstanding common stock.  Harbinger and certain of
its managed and affiliated funds and wholly owned subsidiaries,
including HGW US Holding Company, L.P., Blue Line DZM Corp., and
Harbinger Capital Partners SP, Inc., are represented in the case
by Stephen Karotkin, Esq., at Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP.

The Office of the U.S. Trustee has not appointed a statutory
committee of unsecured creditors.

obtained by TCR editors from a variety of outside sources during
the prior week we think are reliable.  Those sources may not,
however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday Bond Pricing table
is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.  Prices reported
are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices for actual
trades are probably different.  Our objective is to share
information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies with

the definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.
