Cameron Lallier



Cameron A. Lallier is a partner in the Minneapolis office of Foley Mansfield, where he practices in the firm's Banking & Finance and Creditor's Rights groups. Cam’s practice focuses on representing banks and other financial institutions in matters involving workouts, bankruptcy and the enforcement of security interests. More recently, his practice has broadened to include representation of chapter 11 debtors.

Cam represents financial institutions in commercial loan transactions and the restructuring of troubled loans. He has represented a variety of asset-based lenders and equipment lenders in Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases. Cam also represents many other financial institutions in both commercial and consumer regulatory and compliance issues such as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

Cam also has experience working with purchasers of various companies and assets from Chapter 11 debtors.  He has worked with bankruptcy trustees, creditor committees and trade groups in a variety of cases both in Chapter 11 proceedings and out-of-court workouts.

Cam served as debtor’s counsel for the Chapter 11 case of Rancher’s Legacy Meat Co., during which he successfully litigated the avoidance of a secured creditor’s lien, assisted the debtor in obtaining a PPP loan while in an active Chapter 11 proceeding and completed a sale of the assets of the debtor which allowed for the successful continuation of the business operations and the retention of all employees of the debtor.

Cam also represented one of the twenty largest unsecured creditors in the Chapter 11 case of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. He was instrumental in the formation of a separate creditor’s committee to represent the interests of archdiocesan parishes and negotiated the favorable treatment of his client’s claim within the framework of the debtor’s chapter 11 plan.

In addition, Cam served as counsel for the Unsecured Creditors’ Committee in the Chapter 11 case of Pawn America which resulted in a distribution of more than $1,000,000 to unsecured creditors.

While representing a commercial equipment lessor, in a case of first impression in Minnesota, Cam obtained a favorable ruling from the Eighth Circuit’s Bankruptcy Appellate Panel regarding the allowance of his client’s administrative expense claim pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 365(d)(5). In re Sylva Corp., 519 B.R. 776 (8th Cir. BAP 2014).

Prior to practicing law, Cam worked in the commercial collections field. In his free time he enjoys playing football, basketball and baseball with his two sons, traveling with his wife and experimenting with his barbecue smoker to create new and creative barbecue fusion dishes.
