“Has experience across the full range of bankruptcy matters, including regular work on gaming, retail and healthcare insolvencies, as well as distressed real estate loans. Fields a team of attorneys with experience in federal, state and appellate courts, and regularly advises on out-of-court restructurings.” – 2019 Chambers USA
Our lawyers deploy a wide range of restructuring options and litigation strategies to help both distressed asset owners and creditors not only minimize losses, but also leverage the sale or leasing of assets that could potentially lead to new opportunities.
Because of our deep bench of experience, we’ve encountered nearly every situation related to bankruptcy and insolvency and counseled clients from myriad industries. We are particularly noted for creditors’ rights; debtor or creditor committees counsel; prosecution of claims; defense of preference claims; prepackaged bankruptcies to shorten turnaround times; business and loan restructuring; forbearance agreements, structured settlements; loan sales; and representing buyers in Section 363 sales of debtors’ assets.
We regularly collaborate with colleagues from our tax, real estate, environmental, energy and corporate practices to ensure that clients get the benefit of subject matter experts in every discipline.
No one benefits from a protracted bankruptcy process. That’s why we work quickly and efficiently to help debtors and trustees stabilize troubled companies by selling off distressed assets and assist lenders, creditor committees, secured and unsecured creditors in recovering monies owed after a debtor files for Chapter 7, 11 or 13 protection.
