Feinberg has negotiated settlements in some of the most challenging and emotional crises of our times. He was dubbed "The Pay Czar" for his hands-on administrative work in the federal bailout assistance program, TARP, and has taken on similar tasks for the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund and the BP Deepwater Horizon Disaster Victim Compensation Fund. He is currently working out settlements for the Boston Marathon victims.
