Sheryl Toby, Bloomfield Hills-based member of Dykema's Bankruptcy Practice Group, was quoted at length in the Automotive World article, “VW Resolves Supplier Dispute but Not Underlying Problems.”

In the article, Toby analyzes the situation and explains that the industry practice of depending on a single vendor for specific parts and of not stockpiling inventory exposes many car makers to assembly line disruptions.
