Bankruptcy, Restructuring, & Recovery

We bring real world experience to the table and find efficient and proactive strategies to help all of our clients.

Our team has worked on matters that include complex corporate Chapter 11 cases, out of court workouts, and litigation proceedings for our clients. Our decades of experience in workouts and restructurings gives us the tools to successfully navigate sophisticated and complex matters for our clients, including preference and fraudulent transfer litigation, valuation and automatic stay proceedings, objections to discharge/dischargeability and commercial litigation. This experience helps our clients get the most favorable result in difficult and often tense situations.

Our Approach

Our solution-oriented approach ensures we are mobilized to respond to every client’s business needs.

Our Reach

We represent clients in bankruptcy courts nationally, including Delaware, New York, California, Illinois, New Jersey, Arizona, Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee and other jurisdictions nationwide. Many of our lawyers are former judicial law clerks. Our varied experiences means we can respond quickly to our client’s needs wherever they may be.

Our Results

We excel at getting businesses reorganized and creditors paid. We assist clients in recovering their money and collateral when borrowers default or file for bankruptcy and represent secured and unsecured creditors and debtors in restructurings. We take a collaborative approach to obtain the highest possible recovery for our clients in an efficient and cost effective manner.
