Bankruptcy and Business Restructuring


“Our clients expect expert advice, immediate attention to the problem confronting them and constructive collaborative alternatives.” 

Given the highly specialized and complex nature of bankruptcy law, it’s important to have legal representation with significant expertise to represent your interests, either in negotiations or in the courtroom.  Because of our extensive experience representing both lenders and borrowers, we understand the alternatives available to our clients faced with bankruptcy and restructuring.  This diverse perspective enables us to offer our clients reasoned and practical assessments of whether the available remedies will succeed. We also understand the tight deadlines our clients face in making decisions relative to the alternatives available to them, so we always act expeditiously on their behalf.
