Creditor’s Rights and Bankruptcy

Creditor’s Rights and Bankruptcy

Our firm represents commercial creditors and real estate owners and managers in bankruptcy cases, nationwide. The hallmarks of this representation are quick analysis of bankruptcy proceedings, efficient monitoring of developments, and timely action to preserve rights and claims. We provide strategic advice for clients when opposing parties threaten or commence insolvency proceedings – including cases under chapters 7, 11, and 13 of the Bankruptcy Code, as well as proceedings after a general assignment for the benefit of creditors.  

We have deep experience in bankruptcy cases involving real estate. This includes the resolution of time-sensitive issues of possession, lease assumption, rejection and abandoned property. When a commercial tenant files bankruptcy, we provide knowledge, insight, and timely action to protect our client's rights and interests.
