Creditors Committees

Barnes & Thornburg LLP’s Finance, Insolvency and Restructuring Department offers significant experience representing creditors’ committees in Chapter 11 reorganization cases. From cash collateral and debtor-in-possession financing to plan negotiation, our attorneys bring experience and understanding to the complex issues confronting creditors’ committees.

We appreciate that each new case presents a unique set of issues and our attorneys make it a priority to stay informed about the evolving details of every case. This ensures that committees are knowledgeable with regard to significant findings and enables them to make informed decisions about the interests of their constituencies.

Because creditor committee representation often involves legal issues that extend beyond the realm of bankruptcy, our multidisciplinary approach is well-suited to the nature of this practice. Our lawyers often collaborate with peers in other practice areas in order to provide our creditor committee clients with comprehensive representation.

Our lawyers have participated in committees responsible for drafting federal and local rules of bankruptcy procedure. Many are authors, speakers, and faculty members participating in state and national education programs in areas related to finance, insolvency and restructuring, and four members have been certified as business bankruptcy specialists by the American Board of Certification. Our significant background in this field enables us to foresee problematic issues before they arise, protect the interests of unsecured creditors and maximize recovery for all constituents represented by the committee.
