Overview

Our Bankruptcy, Reorganization, and Restructuring attorneys represent a broad spectrum of clients dealing with financially distressed and commercial financial issues. Our attorneys have represented all of the major constituencies in bankruptcy proceedings and non-bankruptcy restructurings, including senior secured lenders, mezzanine lenders, personal property lessors, unsecured trade creditors, creditors’ committees, debtors, asset purchasers, and entities defending against avoidance causes of action.

Two of our attorneys have been listed in The Best Lawyers in America 2009 for bankruptcy and debtor-creditor law. Other attorneys in the firm with experience in bankruptcy litigation are recognized by The Best Lawyers in AmericaChambers USA, and Benchmark Litigation. We bring well-developed litigation skills and experience to all bankruptcy matters. Equally important is that other attorneys in our firm bring exceptional knowledge of real estate transactions and transactional finance to bear on reorganization and restructuring matters and, therefore, are integral to our bankruptcy, reorganization, and restructuring practice.

  • Creditors’ rights and extraordinary remedies
  • Bankruptcy
  • Workout, out-of-court restructurings, and Chapter 11 restructurings
