Ballard Spahr bankruptcy partner and landlord counsel David L. Pollack is first in active assignments for this quarter, the first time he has led in this category since Q4 2005. He is working on two of the largest retail filings for 2011, Borders Group Inc. and Sbarro Inc. “We have a large number of landlord developer clients, so that in almost every major retail case, at least one or more is likely to be involved,” said Mr. Pollack.
