Today's challenging economy has made bankruptcy a more commonly used tool for reorganizing debt, restructuring to meet new business objectives, and maximizing the value of assets. Our attorneys have the skills and experience to guide the process—and to know when another solution might be more suitable.
The Deal has ranked us a "top bankruptcy law firm" for four years running and named five of our attorneys to its list of top lawyers.
Our attorneys handle all aspects of insolvency, including restructuring, workouts, and refinancing of debt, creditor-debtor litigation, and reorganizations and liquidations both in and outside of bankruptcy. Our office in Wilmington, Delaware, the national center for corporate governance and an important jurisdiction for bankruptcy matters, allows us to provide comprehensive services to clients nationwide.
We are one of the few firms in the country to have a leading national practice representing landlords in Chapter 11 cases. The firm is regularly engaged to represent large retail landlords in complex restructuring and bankruptcy matters, often involving multiple clients, varied leasing structures, and locations across the country.
Because many of the complex issues surrounding a corporate restructuring require industry-specific knowledge, we augment our core practice with attorneys in the public finance, real estate, health care, energy and utilities, housing, higher education, securities, investment management, government, environment, labor, and taxation areas. Our practice group is cross-departmental and includes the full participation of non-traditional bankruptcy lawyers.
