SandRidge Energy Inc. (“Sandridge”) emerged from bankruptcy on October 4, 2016, shedding $3.7 billion of debt in its reorganization and trading on the New York Stock Exchange.

Our lawyers have been monitoring the financial state of many oil and gas companies, and the brokerage firms and brokers that underwrote and sold the oil and gas companies’ securities.

Sandridge filed for bankruptcy protection in May 2016, citing high debt and low commodity prices.  Judge David R. Jones last month approved the negotiated reorganization plan after it received “overwhelmning” support from Sandridge’s lenders.

The lawyers at the Silver Law Group, Law Office of David R. Chase and Ciklin Lubitz & O’Connell continue their investigation in Linn Energy, LinnCo, and the brokers and brokerage firms that sold these securities to investors.

Linn Energy and LinnCo are two companies whose investments are structured as master limited partnerships (MLPs).  What was once deemed a promising investment, the two companies have declined drastically.  The master limited partnership (MLP) surpassed $40 per share as recently as late 2012.  Since that time, Linn Energy has dramatically declined and recently declared bankruptcy.

Despite the risky nature of oil, gas, and energy-related securities, many brokers and brokerage firms aggressively sold these investments to their customers, some overconcentrating their customers in the sector.
