Debtors in Bankruptcy
We represent private and public companies from a wide range of industries in bankruptcy matters. We possess the specialized knowledge and depth of experience necessary to assess and advise businesses of all sizes on how to best resolve their debt issues. Working with businesses through the complexities of bankruptcy, we ensure that full advantage is taken of the tools and resources at their disposal to address and correct their financial circumstances. We also have significant experience representing lenders and suppliers in bankruptcy and collection matters.
Our extensive experience with bankruptcy representation allows us to evaluate the risks and opportunities present in each financial restructuring and bankruptcy case. Many times, Chapter 7 or 11 bankruptcy is not the only, or ideal, solution. We work closely with clients to develop the best strategies to address their insolvency and achieve their goals. These can include asset liquidations, non-judicial workouts, receiverships, corporate restructuring, and assignments for the benefit of creditors, bankruptcies, or any combination of these.
Filing for bankruptcy and then meeting the compliance requirements can be a daunting and time consuming task that often overwhelms individuals and businesses alike. Our bankruptcy attorneys create timely and effective plans for reorganization, and then work closely with our clients throughout the process to implement those plans and achieve meaningful results.
