Bankruptcy Litigation and Appeals

We try cases. Our experience is deep and when bankruptcy-related litigation is necessary, we do not have to rely on litigators to lead the case. In our experience, general-practice litigators lack the understanding of bankruptcy law that is necessary for success. We may rely on litigators for backup, but we take the lead at trial. We have tried cases on all of the usual issues that may arise in a bankruptcy case, such as valuation disputes, preferential and fraudulent transfers, officer and director liability, contested plan confirmation, claim objections, insurance disputes and trademark disputes. We also litigate more unusual issues when they arise. We know how to build a case or a defense from the ground up, drafting complaints and answers, completing discovery and prosecuting dispositive motions. Win or lose, we also have a great deal of appellate experience and have been admitted in the United States Supreme Court, and the First, Third, Fifth, Seventh and Ninth Circuits to argue appeals.
