Bankruptcy litigation is fast-paced, often beginning prior to an actual bankruptcy filing, with major disputes being litigated the first day or weeks of the bankruptcy filing. Bankruptcy litigators must have comprehensive knowledge of bankruptcy law and procedures, must be able to quickly learn about new businesses and industries, and must have the prowess to constantly evaluate the rapidly-moving Bankruptcy landscape to obtain favorable resolutions of complex disputes through litigation or negotiation.
