Ignite Restuarant, Inc. Files Chapter 11 Bankruptcy


King & Spalding served as Debtors’ counsel to Ignite Restaurant, Inc. (a public company) and its 11 subsidiaries in their Chapter 11 cases filed in the Southern District of Texas. Ignite owned and operated 137 restaurants located in more than 30 states under the “Joe’s Crab Shack” and “BrickHouse” brands. After a contested bid procedures process, which culminated in the sale of substantially all of the Debtors’ assets, the Debtors successfully confirmed liquidating plans. (2017)
