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, intelligent 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.

News & Events
FBFK CEO Kyle Ferguson announced the fast-growing, full-service law firm will now accept cryptocurrency as payment. It is fitting that such an iconic decision would align with FBFK’s 20-year anniversary, further evidence of the firm’s innovative and forward-thinking approach to business.
SPAC funds are attractive to private companies because a SPAC transaction may offer them a more efficient process for going public. The average time it takes to travel the traditional path of an initial public offering (IPO) is typically at least a year. A SPAC fund can help companies go public in a few months, removing the need to go out and find investors, work long and hard with investment banks, or do much of the other prep work required to go public.
FBFK is proud to announce that intellectual property shareholders Kelly Kubasta and John Cone have once again been named among 2021 D Magazine Best Lawyers in Dallas. The annual, peer-nominated list honors “exceptional lawyers offering unparalleled counsel” in 40 categories across Dallas.
