SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to recent developments in the negotiations between Doral Financial Corporation and the Puerto Rico Treasury Department, Matthew D. McGill of Gibson, Dunn and Crutcher issued the following statement:
"Doral has not left the negotiations. The Treasury Department attempted on Thursday to introduce into the negotiations so-called "business points" conceived by its new outside counsel, Foley & Lardner, that were contrary to the provisions of the agreement reached and sworn to by the parties in front of Judge Perez-Perez of the Court of the First Instance. Foley & Lardner recently represented Doral in a related matter and that raises a conflict of interest. It has a duty of loyalty to its client, Doral, from acting adversely to Doral. For that reason, Doral sought guidance from Judge Perez-Perez as to how to proceed. Judge Perez-Perez ruled that the parties will continue negotiations today under her supervision, without the participation of Foley & Lardner, and according to the terms previously agreed by the parties."
