Creditors’ Committees

We’ve earned an impressive reputation representing creditors’ committees in distressed situations, Chapter 11 cases and complex restructurings. Selected for the highest honors as leading bankruptcy and insolvency lawyers, our team has represented creditors in high-profile proceedings for legendary brands over the past 20 years—Hartmarx Corporation, Ha-Lo Industries, Inc. and Galt Toys, to name a few.

Overcome Restructuring Challenges

We counseled creditors caught in troubled company restructurings at the heart of the economic crisis of 2008, including global corporations such as Corus Bankshares, Inc., SK Hand Tool Corporation. We help creditors’ committees and groups of creditors and investors weather successful turnaround strategies, workouts and asset purchase arrangements and handle assignments for the benefit of creditors.

Defend Creditors Rights

Our recent committee representations have garnered significant cash recoveries for creditors in the steel, manufacturing, retail and technology industries. Acting as the voice of a bankrupt company’s unsecured creditors and a watchdog over the debtor, we represented official committees of secured lenders in newsworthy cases such as Ganton Technologies, United Model Distributors, Inc. and Xpedior, among others.
