Patrick Cantilo
Managing Partner
Cantilo & Bennett, LLP

Having received a Bachelor of Arts degree with Honors from the University of Texas in 1977, and his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Texas School of Law in 1980, Patrick Cantilo was admitted to practice law in the State of Texas in November 1980 . He has since been admitted to practice in all Texas State Courts, the United States District Courts for the Eastern, Northern, Southern and Western Districts of Texas, the United States Court of Federal Claims, the United States Courts of Appeals for the Fourth and the Fifth Circuits, the United States Supreme Court, and the courts of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

While most recently Mr. Cantilo's practice has been concentrated in insurance rehabilitation and liquidation, on the reorganization of health services corporations, and in the area of insurance corporate restructuring, merger and acquisition, his experience is far more diverse.

As advisor to state regulators, he has become deeply involved in conversion, merger, acquisition, reorganization or initial public offering transactions for a number of insurers and Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans.

Much of Mr. Cantilo's law practice has been devoted to the area of civil litigation and alternative dispute resolution, including cases in the State and Federal Courts, both at the trial and appellate levels.  His litigation experience includes relatively straight-forward matters like the prosecution or defense of insurance claims and very complex matters such as major bankruptcy reorganizations and insurance rehabilitations.  Demonstrative of this experience are the roles played by Mr. Cantilo as lead counsel for Texas Insurance regulators in the Maxicare Bankruptcy (reported at In re Family Health Services, Inc., 101 B.R. 618 (Bankr. C.D. Cal. 1989)) and in the bankruptcy proceeding involving an insurance holding company and its affiliates.  (See In re First Financial Enterprises, Inc., 99 B.R. 751 (Bankr. W.D. Tex. 1989)).

He has served as lead counsel in cases involving professional negligence, RICO, fraud, reinsurance transactions, transnational conflicts, banking and letters of credit, state licensing, medical privileges, landlord tenant disputes, medical malpractice actions, construction negligence, wrongful lien, insurance fraud, regulatory jurisdiction, commercial lending, deceptive trade practices, defense of a variety of insurance claims, employment issues, liability of officers and directors, bankruptcy, insurance insolvency, and a host of other matters.

Mr. Cantilo has also devoted a significant part of his legal career to complicated business and insurance transactions, including the reorganization or conversion of Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans in several states, negotiation of acquisitions and complex reinsurance transactions, the development and implementation of complex insurance rehabilitation plans, the negotiation of purchase and sale agreements for a variety of businesses, goods and services, participation in corporate reorganizations, participation in complex real estate transactions, mergers, acquisitions, and similar matters.

He has served as Counsel to the Receiver, as Special Deputy Receiver, Deputy Receiver, Deputy Liquidator, or in comparable capacities in literally dozens of insurance and managed care insolvencies throughout the country.  He has taken the lead in the rehabilitation and liquidation of a wide variety of entities ranging from a small trust company to multi-billion dollar life insurance companies and including a number of health maintenance organizations, life insurance companies, accident and health insurance companies, property and casualty insurance companies, title insurance companies, insurance agencies, premium finance companies and related entities.  He has negotiated the formation and commutation of reinsurance agreements, developed plans for the collection of agents' balances, collected reinsurance recoverables, negotiated agreements with guaranty funds and other regulators, negotiated with federal authorities on such matters as insurance claims disputes, tax claims and related matters, developed and implemented complex plans for the rehabilitation or liquidation of a large variety of insurers and insurance related entities, and has written and lectured numerous times on related topics.  This area of practice continues to occupy much of Mr. Cantilo's time, as he continues to play the lead role in the rehabilitation of two multi-billion dollar life insurers, the receivership of a household name-casualty insurer, the liquidation of a multi-state Workers' Compensation and Professional Liability insurer, and more limited roles in other insurance insolvencies.  At the same time, Mr. Cantilo continues to devote much of his attention to complex transactional work and a broad array of regulatory and civil litigation matters.
