Healthcare Workouts & Reorganizations

Jackson Walker’s Bankruptcy, Restructuring, and Recovery attorneys have a proven track record of achieving clients’ goals and protecting their interests in the distressed healthcare industry. We represent all manner of healthcare entities, including hospitals, senior care facilities, insurance companies, medical service providers, and other healthcare industry participants seeking solutions when financially challenged.

Our attorneys are often called on to guide struggling healthcare companies through the reorganization process as debtors in Chapter 11 cases. We have significant experience helping buyers purchase healthcare assets for sale in bankruptcy proceedings. We also assist landlords with healthcare tenants to navigate the assumption or rejection of leases in bankruptcy, and represent doctors, vendors and other non-debtor creditor parties in healthcare entities’ bankruptcy proceedings to preserve and prosecute claims against the bankrupt entities.

Whether our client is a secured creditor, non-debtor contract party, or significant unsecured creditor, we have the legal experience and industry understand to protect their respective interests and claims in healthcare bankruptcy proceedings and out-of-court restructurings.
