Bankruptcy and Insolvency

Our lawyers regularly represent secured and unsecured creditors, creditors’ committees, debtors-in-possession, lessors, suppliers, equity holders, purchasers, trustees, receivers, custodians and other parties in interest in cases under the Bankruptcy Code and applicable state statutes.  Our practice is national in scope and covers most segments of the economy, with a particular strength in the financial services industry.

Our attorneys have extensive experience in representing secured creditors and lenders in bankruptcy proceedings.  Because we also represent debtors, creditors’ committees, trustees, receivers and examiners, our attorneys are familiar with the full range of issues that secured creditors and lenders may face.  Our lawyers have experience in the procedural and litigation complexities inherent in the representation of secured creditors and lenders, but also maintain a practical view that focuses on recovering the most value at the least cost.  We look for creative opportunities to resolve conflicts that may otherwise make recovery more difficult or expensive.  If litigation is required to fully protect our clients’ interests, our lawyers have decades of experience in achieving superior results in court. 

For decades, our firm has represented banks, savings and loans, insurance companies, mezzanine lenders, hedge funds, and other financiers in commercial financing transactions.  As a result, our lawyers often are called on to facilitate the development and implementation of “work out” strategies for troubled loans.  Our experience includes the restructuring of multimillion-dollar credit facilities, asset-based loans, letter of credit financing and standard commercial loans.
