Corporate Borrowers

Better Solutions Take creativity and determination

Representing financially challenged businesses requires a laser-like focus on realistic solutions to recover and remain viable. We bring this commitment, along with experience, sound judgment, creativity and energy to the restructuring process.

Bankruptcy court is a last resort and, whenever possible, we strive to resolve matters through direct negotiations with your lenders and other creditors. When circumstances necessitate the commencement of a bankruptcy case, however, we draw on our decades of experience to provide you effective representation in Chapter 11 cases.

One Team, National Reach

We have represented dozens of corporate borrowers in out-of-court workouts and debtors in large, complex chapter 11 cases across the country including significant cases before the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, Southern District of New York and Northern District of Illinois. Our attorneys have led teams that have confirmed both pre-packaged and pre-arranged chapter 11 reorganization plans. Conversely, we have handled sales of substantially all of a debtor’s assets under section 363 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code and the subsequent confirmation of chapter 11 liquidation plans.
