The firm's bankruptcy attorneys provide comprehensive representation in liquidations, reorganizations and work-outs. In formal bankruptcy and reorganization proceedings, the firm has represented bankruptcy trustees, bondholders (secured, unsecured, and subordinated), creditors, creditors committees, debtors, examiners, indenture trustees, institutional lenders, and mass tort claimants under Chapters 7 and 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. The firm's attorneys have routinely appeared in significant bankruptcies filed nationwide, often, as lead debtor's counsel or creditors' committee's counsel in the bankruptcy cases of numerous publicly held companies.
Experience in financial reorganizations and disputes covers the waterfront, including lead counsel to debtors, secured creditors, trustees, indenture trustees, an examiner and various creditors committees and one of the attorneys currently serves as the legal representative in a major asbestos case, which has been ongoing for the last decade.
In recent years, the firm has represented mass tort claimants, whose efforts to obtain satisfaction of their claims are disrupted by one or more defendants’ bankruptcy filings. In those cases, the firm, on behalf of its clients, has initiated stay litigation, opposed extension of the stay to non-debtor co-defendants, litigated post-petition financing arrangements and participated in negotiations regarding insurance coverage issues and claims resolution procedures.
