Bankruptcy-Related Litigation & Transactions


Our bankruptcy litigators have extensive experience defending parties against bankruptcy causes of action and related claims, including preference and fraudulent conveyance claims, actions to turn over property to the bankruptcy estate, and all other types of litigation claims, including commercial torts, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, and fraud.

As a mid-sized firm, we are able to offer our bankruptcy clients a distinctive combination of high-level knowledge, an efficient use of resources, and personal attention to clients' needs. The experience of our Bankruptcy & Creditors' Rights Practice Group has helped many clients achieve the best possible results through the bankruptcy process. Our bankruptcy practice is notable for successfully handling numerous matters that are on the cutting edge of developing bankruptcy law. Among other things, we are currently prosecuting a significant number of highly complex litigations in the context of Ponzi schemes, including the bankruptcy case of Bernard L. Madoff.

The attorneys in our Bankruptcy & Creditors' Rights Practice Group have extensive experience representing the various parties who have interests in Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases.
