Bankruptcy

Insolvency and the threat or filing of bankruptcy form are segments of the business and litigation spectrum.  Well-informed and well-represented parties achieve better results when dealing with these issues in their adversaries, partners, or their own financial challenges.  Attorney Jason Wallach heads the bankruptcy department.

Our lawyers have an unusual combination of skills and knowledge of the intersection and interaction of litigation in state and federal courts, the remedies that may be used at the beginning or end of such litigation, and the impact of bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings on those remedies and the litigant’s outcomes.

GH&P’s bankruptcy lawyers have broad and deep experience and up-to-the-minute substantive knowledge of insolvency and bankruptcy law, procedures and alternatives including Chapters 7, 11, 13, and 15, as well as Assignments for the Benefit of Creditors.  We have represented stressed businesses, creditors, debtors, trustees, lenders, investors, landlords, tenants, shareholders, directors, spouses, trust beneficiaries, and other parties in all aspects of bankruptcies, workouts, turnarounds, debt restructurings, moratoriums, asset dispositions, and appeals, both in and out of court.  Bankruptcy, like other disputes also often involves mediated resolutions, another area of strength.

We also advise and represent parties that are tangentially or potentially impacted, including recipients of preferences or avoidable transfers, competitors, potential buyers, sureties, neighbors, and others.

We regularly provide businesses and individuals with transactional advice, planning alternatives, litigation support, problem-solving strategies, and ultimately favorable outcomes.

In addition to the Bankruptcy and Insolvency practice, the department also handles problematic business transactions and serves as outside general counsel to several small and family-owned businesses.
