Bankruptcy and Creditors Rights
When a company enters bankruptcy, the creditors have guaranteed rights aimed at helping them recoup the debt owed by the debtor. Companies need a firm who understands how to navigate through the bankruptcy process and prepare them for the potentially lengthy affair.
This is why we have been the law firm of choice for secured lenders, trade creditors, asset purchasers, landlords, financially distressed companies, and shareholders. We have experience across state and national borders helping our clients retain and enforce their creditor rights. This extends to aiding our clients in seeking relief from automatic stay and in litigating contested claims.
We regularly represent creditors in avoidance action litigation. We work to convey our clients’ preferences in regard to receiving preference recovery, preventing fraudulent conveyances and transfers. We also help our clients seek pre-petition and post-petition contracts and leases that help protect their assets before, during and after bankruptcy proceedings. Finally, our firm can help a creditor set a lien against a debtor should the need arise and their assets need protection.
The attorneys at Fishman Jackson Ronquillo use their experience outside the law firm as investors, entrepreneurs and businesspeople to understand the importance of successfully working toward protecting and recovering assets during the bankruptcy. We have run companies ourselves and take that understanding into consideration every time we work with a client. We use this knowledge as a foundation on which to build our clients’ case. With that footing, our firm will counsel our clients on the best actions to take and what options are available to them to help recover their assets and protect their interests.
Fishman Jackson Ronquillo understands how important it is for creditors to assert their rights during a bankruptcy process. We will work hard to prevent our clients from losing their ability to recover their debts by aggressively conveying their interests to the court and other parties involved in the bankruptcy.
