Bankruptcy and Creditors' Rights
The lawyers of the firm’s Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights practice group possess substantial experience in representing clients who are involved with bankruptcy, reorganization, commercial loan workout, foreclosure and creditors’ rights matters. We regularly represent lenders and other creditors in state and federal courts to enforce their rights following defaults, including collection of amounts due, possession of collateral, mortgage foreclosure, and the enforcement of rights and remedies pursuant to mortgages and security interests arising under the Uniform Commercial Code.
We have represented creditors and debtors in commercial loan workouts and restructurings involving a broad range of industries including real estate development, retail, health care, manufacturing, transportation, technology and telecommunications, and we have also represented secured creditors, unsecured creditors, debtors in possession and other interested parties in bankruptcy cases. We also advise clients in connection with matters that arise under or that relate to bankruptcy cases, such as preference, fraudulent transfer and stay relief matters, and also non-dischargeability actions and other adversary proceedings. We have particular experience relating to disputes in bankruptcy cases that concern leases (of real estate and personal property) and executory contracts, as well as issues that involve the applicability of environmental law and family law.
