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 and stressful — often requiring competing participants to make crucial decisions quickly in situations where each party has a different agenda.

Working successfully in this rapidly moving 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.

Clients who have chosen our firm include debtors, indenture trustees, investors in distressed securities, asset purchasers, Chapter 11 trustees, liquidation trustees, creditors’ committees, landlords, secured creditors, and debtor-in-possession lenders.
