We provide our clients with the full spectrum of services to protect their rights and maximize their recovery. This representation includes suits on notes and guaranties, writs of immediate possession, receiverships, personal property foreclosures including public and private sales, confirmation of real property foreclosure sales, deficiency suits, involuntary bankruptcy proceedings, avoidance and recovery of preferential and fraudulent transfers under the Bankruptcy Code and the Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act, and suits to deny the discharge of indebtedness in bankruptcy cases.

In bankruptcy and restructuring matters, we have a wide range of experience representing financial institutions, the FDIC, creditors, creditor and management committees, trustees, examiners, purchasers, and other parties in interest. Furthermore, we advise our clients regarding the bankruptcy and creditors’ rights aspects of various types of transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, asset purchases, financings, and contracts.
