Bankruptcy and Insolvency

Our Bankruptcy and Insolvency Practice Group stands ready to defend or prosecute the rights of debtors, creditors, committees, and trustees in all forums.

A highly specialized skill set and elevated level of expertise underlies our commitment to helping clients navigate through distressed financial issues.

Our extensive experience in bankruptcy-related issues allows us to effectively navigate the myriad proceedings and issues that are generated in complex bankruptcy cases.
