Bankruptcy Litigation

Recognized among the country’s leading bankruptcy and insolvency lawyers, we navigate challenging litigation issues to achieve advantageous restructurings, reorganizations and settlements for our clients.

Notable Bankruptcy Experience

Our bankruptcy attorneys have a proven track record of success litigating notable U.S. bankruptcy cases. We have served as principal counsel in leading reported decisions concerning equitable subordination, fraudulent transfers, indubitable equivalence and the Code section 1111(b) election, creditor standing, lender liability, substantive consolidation, constructive trusts, lien rights, administrative claims, “bad faith” filings and other significant issues defining the scope of debtors’ and creditors’ rights.

Seamless Cross-Practice Resources

We seamlessly coordinate across practices in securities and commodities, taxation, real estate, labor and employment to provide comprehensive solutions to complex bankruptcy cases. In one such collaboration, we defended fraudulent conveyance litigation brought against a former 51% shareholder that received $91 million in a leveraged buyout and subsequent IPO of Refco, Inc., one of the world’s most prominent independent commodities brokerage firms, before its collapse.

From litigating cash control orders with lenders and negotiating real estate settlement enforcements, to defending investment funds in preference litigation and administrative actions, we have the knowledge and experience to navigate debtors and creditors of troubled companies through the most challenging financial situations.
