Skillful advisers help parties evaluate bankruptcy reorganization proposals
Businesses that cannot meet their financial obligation frequently use bankruptcy reorganization under Chapter 11 in an effort to stay afloat. The law allows debtors to take several types of measures as they search for a better way forward. However, these reorganization plans must be approved by the creditors and the court. Our firm represents creditors as they evaluate reorganization proposals and advocates for terms that help clients recover what is owed to them.

When banks require assistance recovering what they’ve lent or reaching suitable repayment terms, our attorneys can assess the facts promptly and identify workable solutions. As a firm with an extensive background in this area of law, we help financial institutions take a strong position that encourages debtors to meet their obligations.
