Our lawyers advise, plan, strategize, and litigate on behalf of creditors’ committees, commercial lenders, and debtors. Our work has resulted in the recovery and return of millions of dollars to our clients.

Constantly Striving to Achieve Your Objectives 

Bankruptcy practice requires a unique set of skills. It requires a working knowledge of how businesses operate and an understanding of accounting. It requires litigation skills in conducting examinations of witnesses, reviewing documents, legal research and writing briefs, and oral advocacy, as well as mastery of the Rules of Civil Procedure, the Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, and the Rules of Evidence. Finally, it requires a firm grasp of the Bankruptcy Code and how the Bankruptcy Court works. Our bankruptcy attorneys have the skills and experience to provide you dedicated, effective representation. 

Our representation of both debtors and creditors allows us to recognize and understand the strengths and weaknesses of the other side to the transaction. Whether representing creditors or debtors, we zealously represent our clients to achieve their goals. If you or your company is facing debt issues, creditor issues, or bankruptcy litigation, contact us to discuss your situation.
