Bankruptcy & Creditors’ Rights

We offer bankruptcy assistance in a broad spectrum of contexts with a focus on the representation of lenders, secured and unsecured creditors, landlords, equity holders and purchasers, trustees, receivers, and corporate debtors. So, whether you are a creditor seeking to protect your interest in a Chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy case, a business seeking to reorganize and explore Chapter 11, or a trustee looking for comprehensive representation in the avoidance of preferences, fraudulent transfers, or in other claims litigation, we are equipped to thoroughly handle your case.

Our bankruptcy counsel handles all aspects of bankruptcy cases, including cash collateral, adequate protection, relief from stay, 363 sales, and DIP financing and plan confirmation.  We also regularly represent parties in fraudulent conveyance, preference, breach of fiduciary duty, equitable subordination, lender liability and bankruptcy-related UCC and general commercial claims.

Our bankruptcy counsel is also available for consultations concerning the bankruptcy considerations to be addressed prior to finalizing a divorce. Since bankruptcy and divorce often occur within two years of each other, one should not defeat the goals of the other. Likewise, consultations regarding asset structuring to maximize exemptions or to leverage claims, as well as critical considerations regarding the timing of actions by debtors and creditors in light of a potential future bankruptcy filing are offered to avoid some of the pitfalls of bankruptcy. We are able to assist individuals and companies desiring to purchase assets or claims from bankruptcy estates; and, we offer mediation services in bankruptcy cases and related litigation.

General commercial litigation experience is combined with more than 20 years of experience in litigating matters before the Bankruptcy Court to offer our clients thorough representation in complex bankruptcy cases, as well as adversary proceedings. We are able to address bankruptcy issues arising out of employment issues, contracts, real estate transactions, consumer accounts, deposit accounts, set offs, probate claims, insurance claims, and landlord-tenant matters, among others.  Our comprehensive experience and expertise creates a perspective and understanding that permits us to guide our clients through the substantive, interpersonal and practical issues that arise during bankruptcy.
