Bankruptcy and Restructuring
Financial distress is an unavoidable fixture in today’s business landscape. Whether you are a creditor with a stake in a bankruptcy matter, a company experiencing its own financial stress, or an investor looking for opportunities to make an acquisition from a distressed situation, FBFK is uniquely prepared to offer you counsel to navigate all insolvency-related challenges and opportunities. We take a multidisciplinary approach to bankruptcy, financial restructuring and creditors’ rights, collaborating as needed with firm attorneys in a variety of disciplines –corporate, finance, real estate, employment, and litigation – to provide you with the most cost-efficient, expert solutions to your challenges.
Our Areas of Focus
- Representation of creditors, debtors, committees and other parties-in-interest in chapter 7 (liquidation) and chapter 11 (reorganization) cases
- Out-of-court restructuring and workouts
- Distressed asset purchases
- Transactional advice related to bankruptcy, out-of-court restructurings, and other creditors’ rights issues
- Bankruptcy litigation, including prosecuting and defending preference and fraudulent transfer claims and objections to claims
Our attorneys provide experienced guidance in assessing all stakeholder interests in distressed situations to maximize value and recoveries. While a consensual resolution is always the desired outcome, we realize it is not possible that in every case. In such instances, our attorneys are well-prepared to litigate and have substantial litigation experience in contested matters and adversary proceedings in bankruptcy courts, federal district courts, and federal appellate courts.
