When a company petitions for bankruptcy, there’s nothing more concerning that the potential impact the filing will have on its creditors. Protecting the value of your investment and the collection of rightful claims is of paramount importance.
Our bankruptcy and restructuring attorneys have the experience to guide creditors through the complex bankruptcy process and maximize their recoveries. Whether it be lenders, note holders, official creditor committees, trade creditors, or other creditor groups, we help our clients navigate the diverse interests in order to meet their respective objectives. We’re skilled at addressing the various interests and facilitating solutions to what can be at times opposing goals. We bring a common-sense approach to bankruptcy proceedings and will assert your rights in bankruptcy court. When issues cannot be resolved, we will litigate to maximize and protect the value of your investment.
We represent creditor groups both secured and unsecured across industries that include automotive, financial, oil and gas, food services, maritime, and telecommunications, among others. When necessary, we also call upon some of the services of our other disciplines such as real estate, finance, intellectual property, ERISA, tax, and more to handle other bankruptcy matters.
