SederLaw’s Bankruptcy and Creditor’s Rights practice group represents the interests of lenders, banks, financial institutions, and businesses that serve as creditors. Bankruptcy and debtor insolvency present a number of obstacles that require extensive legal skill and experience. Our objective is to protect the rights of creditors throughout the bankruptcy process so they can minimize losses and maximize recovery. That’s the level of service upon which our clients have come to rely.
The Scope Of Our Creditor’s Rights Representation
Our law firm represents a number of different creditors, including:
- Public and private lenders
- Asset-based lenders
- Commercial and real estate lenders
- Secured and unsecured creditors
- Local, regional, and national banks
- Financial institutions
Knowledge of bankruptcy law is only one of many reasons that we’ve earned a reputation of exceptional client service. Our attorneys also have expertise in multiple other areas of law, which enables us to provide unparalleled legal representation. Additionally, SederLaw serves clients across a wide range of different industries. Your organization deserves a law firm that appreciates the challenges unique to your business, and we are ready to handle your matter from the start.
We advocate for creditors in bankruptcy cases and insolvency proceedings, litigation, workouts, restructuring, and enforcement. That representation includes asserting and defending secured and unsecured claims; protecting our clients’ rights under executory contracts and unexpired leases; and defending against preference, fraudulent conveyance, receivership, and foreclosure proceedings and other avoidance actions.
Our Approach To Bankruptcy
When a client retains us, we immediately get to work reviewing the bankruptcy filings and devising carefully crafted legal strategies designed to protect their rights. Bankruptcies and distressed loans present opportunities for creditors to ensure they are not taken advantage of through fraud or other abuses of the bankruptcy courts. We provide broad legal representation that is fully equipped to handle the intricacies of any bankruptcy or insolvency matter. To that end, we explore these and other potential solutions:
- Objections to confirmation
- Motions for relief from the automatic stay
- Debt restructuring and workouts
- Handling executory contracts and unexpired leases
- Negotiating resolution of claims
- Repossessing assets from delinquent accounts
- Pursuing eviction, foreclosure, and collection actions
- Valuation and lien avoidance matters
- Discharge and dischargeability litigation
- Mediation and arbitration
These are only a few of the typical cases that SederLaw manages. As with any bankruptcy or insolvency, the exact legal strategy will vary according to the client and the individual circumstances. Time is of the essence once a bankruptcy is filed if a creditor wishes to exercise its full spectrum of remedies, so we waste no time advocating for our clients.
We also understand that there may be options for recovering assets prior to a bankruptcy filing, and we take advantage of those options where possible. That’s an essential part of our belief that meeting the precise needs of our clients requires a comprehensive, resourceful, and adaptive approach.
Creditor’s Rights: Help For Corporate Clients
Our representation of creditors extends to assisting corporate clients with distressed loan and asset acquisitions, both inside and outside the bankruptcy process. Serving corporate clients requires expertise in such litigation matters as those listed above, but we also draw upon our skill in transactional work. For instance, we assist with drafting and executing a number of different agreements, including:
- Litigation settlement agreements
- Warehousing agreements
- Collateral trust, insurance indemnity, and surety bond agreements
- Securities lending, swap, and other derivatives transaction agreements
This area of law requires a multidisciplinary approach beyond bankruptcy law and procedure and extends into such related practice areas as:
- Business and corporate law
- Banking and finance
- Real estate
- Employment law
We are prepared to bring this degree of legal talent to bear in the matter that is facing your organization.
