BANKRUPTCY AND RESTRUCTURING
Years of Experience
Our attorneys provide services to individuals and private corporations seeking to liquidate their assets or restructure their business and/or finances. Our experience includes representing clients’ interests from the first sign of trouble through bankruptcy proceedings (Chapters 7, 11, 12 and 13) or litigation.
On the debtor side, we work closely with the client to minimize disruption to their family or business, while simultaneously examining and analyzing opportunities to address their financial issues. By becoming true partners with our clients during this process, we help them protect their interests and seek efficient resolutions to their short- and long-term concerns. Our experience representing debtors includes handling out-of-court settlements by negotiating agreed payment terms.
We represent creditors and creditor constituents, including unsecured creditors’ committees, secured lenders, bondholders, and trade and lien creditors. Understanding each matter is unique, we approach each matter to maximize our client’s recoveries, either through negotiations or through litigation. Our role includes advising our clients on risk management strategies in advance of formal bankruptcy proceedings to limit potential exposure, representing creditor interests within formal bankruptcy proceedings and out-of-court workouts, and representing defendants in preference and fraudulent conveyance actions.
