Bankruptcy and Restructurings

Our Corporate lawyers are accustomed to working closely with clients through every phase of the business life cycle – even in the toughest of times. We have guided clients though reorganizations, debt restructurings and liquidations -- both in and out of bankruptcy.

We work with colleagues in our Finance, Insolvency and Restructuring Department to seamlessly provide deep subject matter knowledge. We bring experience with the bankruptcy courts and imaginative solutions, when it matters most to the preservation of your business.

When insolvency threatens a business, we know how crises tend to feed on one another and everyday business decisions seem to turn into an endless series of legal challenges. We work closely with you to navigate such times. In the unwelcome event of bankruptcy, when every creditor and constituency comes urgently calling, a business lawyer with broad experience who has lived with clients through Chapter 11 can be an invaluable teammate.

Of course, we also stand ready to assist you when your customers, borrowers, tenants or business partners fail to honor their obligations. We regularly represent secured lenders, unsecured creditors, landlords, equipment lessors and others to protect their rights against defaulting and insolvent parties. Much of bankruptcy is transactional, so it's a natural fit for our corporate attorneys to counsel lenders providing debtor-in-possession financing; investors in reorganized businesses; and bidders for assets being sold out of bankruptcy.
