Bankruptcy and Restructuring


We have substantial experience in representing the interests of clients impacted by the intersection of environmental law and bankruptcy law and have been involved in some of the most prominent cases in this area. We have represented both debtors and creditors in this regard, and have addressed a broad array of issues, such as the scope of the automatic stay and bankruptcy discharge in relation to environmental claims, as well as the liquidation and estimation of complex environmental claims in the bankruptcy context. Our work in this area benefits from the fact that we have attorneys who practice in both the environmental and bankruptcy areas. Moreover, we can, as necessary, access the extensive resources of our nationally recognized environmental practice.
