Business Practice

Creditor Representation

Creditor Representation:

We represent creditors in various capacities, from advising and counseling in workout situations to representation in bankruptcy cases. Our attorneys have significant experience representing banks and other financial institutions, as well as trade creditors, both in and out of court. Some matters can only be resolved with judicial intervention, and we are well-qualified to appear in federal, state, or bankruptcy court on behalf of our clients and not troubled by litigation where that is the appropriate course of action.

Preference Defense:

We often represent defendants in preference actions brought by bankruptcy debtors or trustees. We have represented local companies in cases around the country, and we have also represented national companies in our local bankruptcy courts. Preference defense requires a thorough understanding of a complicated area. Bringing our knowledge and experience to bear, we can often achieve a reasonable settlement for our client, without incurring unnecessary expense.

Landlords:

We have particular expertise representing commercial landlords in bankruptcy cases. Landlords are often at a greater disadvantage than other unsecured creditors, as the Bankruptcy Code contains provisions that lean in favor of the debtor-tenant. We are cognizant of the hardships imposed on landlords in the bankruptcy process, and we work hard to level the playing field for our clients in this situation.
