Corporate & Business Law - Bankruptcy, Creditor's Rights, & Workout

The benefits of deep understanding—and a sensible perspective.

Our Professionals

We represent trade creditors who are seeking protection of their rights both in and out of bankruptcy court. We represent:


  • Buyers purchasing assets at bankruptcy court sales or through out-of-court-proceedings, including secured party sales.
  • Secured creditors seeking to enforce their rights under their security documents.
  • Landlords addressing rejection of, or assumption and assignment of, leases in bankruptcy court.
  • Creditors defending preference and fraudulent transfer actions.
  • Construction companies in navigating the intersection of bankruptcy, surety law and other construction-specific issues.
  • Vendors in connection with retail bankruptcies, with a focus on secured transactions and Article 9 issues.

Our work often goes beyond the bankruptcy court. For example:

  • We represent both borrowers and lenders in out-of-court restructurings. This often involves negotiating intricate workout transactions.
  • We frequently assist clients in structuring complex transactions to securitize loans for “bankruptcy remote” purposes.
  • We structure settlements to ensure the maximum protection for our clients.
  • We facilitate secured party sales of distressed assets.
