Claims Arising In Bankruptcy
Bankruptcy trustees have been aggressive in suing law firms. We frequently represent law firms in defending such claims. We have represented more than a dozen of the largest law firms in the United States against claims asserted by bankruptcy trustees. These adversary proceedings have involved claims of malpractice, breach of fiduciary duty, fraudulent transfer, and preference payments. Litigating claims in bankruptcy court is different from litigating in state and federal district courts. Our substantial experience enables us to be strategic and efficient in the unique setting of the bankruptcy court.
