Our firm draws on the strengths of its national Bankruptcy and Restructuring and Finance practices to offer clients an integrated team of lawyers who practice in the area of creditors' rights.
We represent individual creditors and creditor groups of all kinds, including agents and bank groups in syndicated credit facilities, secured and unsecured noteholders, creditors' committees, and examiners and other fiduciaries. We work with these clients in matters involving loan workouts, debt restructurings, debtor-in-possession financings, and the enforcement of creditors' rights generally. We have experience in a wide range of industries, including aviation, energy, environmental, entertainment, government contracting, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, mass torts, retail, technology, and transportation. We also understand how to approach complex, cross-border insolvencies and the types of issues that creditors face when dealing in foreign jurisdictions.
We represent trade creditors in some of the largest bankruptcy cases, as well as in smaller cases throughout the country. Our lawyers advise clients on reducing or altering trade credit; planning for a customer's bankruptcy; filing and pursuing claims against debtors; potential recoveries from non-debtor parties; rights of reclamation, set-off, and recoupment; and other issues faced by trade creditors. We also represent clients in selling bankruptcy claims, as a way to achieve a quick and certain recovery. We represent unsecured creditors in a wide variety of litigation, including preference and fraudulent conveyance matters.
