Creditors' Rights Litigation

Our bankruptcy and creditors rights group represents creditors to maximize their recovery and minimize exposure to counterparty insolvency before and after a bankruptcy filing.

The Firm represents secured and unsecured creditors in Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases; asset acquisition in bankruptcy; defense against fraudulent transfer, claw back from ponzi scheme victims, including in the Madoff litigation, bankruptcy preference, subordination, and other avoidance claims; foreclosures; the development and negotiation of out-of-court and Chapter 11 workouts, restructure, and reorganization plans; lender liability litigation; and representation on matters arising out of executory contracts, license and franchise agreements, distributorship agreements, and commitment letters. We also frequently counsel our clients to mitigate against the risk of counterparty bankruptcies in connection with commercial transactions and the settlements of civil litigation matters. Members of our bankruptcy team have represented creditors in some of the largest bankruptcy cases throughout the United States, including Lehman Brothers, MF Global, Lyondell Chemicals, Enron, WorldCom, Adelphia, US Airways I and II, and Bethlehem Steel. These engagements included executory contract disputes, administrative claim disputes, contesting plans of reorganization, and defending against adversary proceedings.
