Creditors Rights, Collections, & Bankruptcy Litigation

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.

Our practice in this area includes representation in:

  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Claims & Objections
  • Claims for Statutory or Equitable Subordination
  • Constructive Trust
  • Fraudulent Transfer Actions
  • D&O Litigation
  • Insurance Coverage
  • Litigation and Creditors Trusts
  • Plan Confirmation
  • Post-Confirmation Liquidation Actions
  • Executory Contract Disputes
  • Bankruptcy Contested Matter Disputes
  • Objections to First-Day Relief
  • Preference Avoidance Actions
  • Relief from Automatic Stay
  • Rule 9019 Compromise Hearings
  • Collections

We have extensive experience representing clients in bankruptcy litigation, including the enforcement of rights and collection and/or protection of assets in bankruptcies, restructurings, or in other situations involving a financially distressed company. We are routinely hired by liquidation and litigation trusts post-confirmation to pursue and monetize claims, including claims against directors and officers, claims for insurance coverage, and fraudulent transfers. We have represented parties in bankruptcy litigation ranging in size from $500,000 to over $1 Billion. Our experience crosses multiple industries, and our lawyers have appeared in various courts across the United States.
