Most commercial transactions include the risk that a customer or another party to a contract may experience financial difficulties and may file bankruptcy. Our attorneys advise clients in the planning, structuring, and documentation of business formations and commercial transactions in order to protect our clients from the adverse effects of insolvency or bankruptcy.
We assist clients dealing with insolvency issues, and we represent client’s interests in the Bankruptcy Court.
Our attorneys are experienced in representing the rights of creditors affected by bankruptcy, including in obtaining relief from the automatic stay, negotiating the terms for agreements for adequate protection and the use of cash collateral, obtaining the appropriate treatment of leases and executory contracts, negotiating terms for appropriate treatment in bankruptcy plans, litigating the determination of the dischargeability of debts, defending creditors against avoidance actions, and other actions necessary to assure that our clients receive the best possible outcome in every type of bankruptcy case.
In addition to bankruptcy services, our attorneys are skilled in the enforcement of creditors’ rights. Our clients include various banks and other financial institutions, insurance companies, leasing and finance companies, and other entities interested in preserving and enforcing their rights as creditors. Our attorneys routinely advise creditors regarding their rights and remedies under the Uniform Commercial Code, represent creditors in the foreclosure of real and personal property, advise parties in secured transactions, and address all areas of commercial loans.
Our attorneys also consult with financially troubled companies prior to bankruptcy. We advise clients on the feasibility, timeliness, advantages and disadvantages of bankruptcy protection.
