Creditors’ Rights & Bankruptcy
An outstanding track record of ensuring that clients receive their due.
The aggressive enforcement of the rights and remedies of clients with respect to financial transactions is an original cornerstone of the firm and remains a highly prominent practice area. On behalf of major banks, asset-based lenders, real estate lenders, equipment leasing companies and litigation trusts, we regularly handle matters that include collection, replevin, foreclosures, fraudulent conveyance, injunctions, receiverships and sophisticated enforcement of judgments. We also bring broad experience in achieving workouts of troubled financial transactions either in advance of litigation or as part of a structured workout to resolve litigation and/or claims in bankruptcy. Attorneys in this practice area, working closely with the Corporate and Financial Services group, and the Real Estate group, bring experience in Chapter 11 DIP financing, asset sales and acquisitions of companies in Chapter 11 cases.
This group also offers outstanding experience and skills in the reorganization, restructuring or liquidation of financially troubled companies under federal bankruptcy and state insolvency laws through its representation of secured lenders, landlords, trustees, creditors’ committees and debtors in bankruptcy cases and proceedings. Members of the firm have also served as trustees, referees, receivers, mediators, examiners, and in other court-appointed positions.
