Bankruptcy, Reorganization, & Creditors’ Rights

We pride ourselves on understanding the strategic implications of the restructuring process.

Whether in chapter 11 or out of court, the restructuring process is complex, often requiring competing participants to make crucial decisions quickly in situations where each party has a different agenda.

Working successfully in this dynamic environment requires an intimate knowledge of the process, the law, and the strategic needs of all the players. Our understanding of the legal and strategic implications of the restructuring process may mean the difference between success and failure.

Our lawyers have significant experience representing the full spectrum of key parties in restructuring matters, including debtors, indenture trustees, investors, asset purchasers, chapter 11 trustees, liquidation trustees, committees, landlords, secured and unsecured creditors, lenders, and boards of directors.

We employ an integrated team approach to restructuring matters that draws on the firm’s bankruptcy, litigation and transactional expertise.
