The lawyers in our Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights Practice Group represent creditors both in and out of bankruptcy court. We have substantial experience representing creditors in proceedings under Chapters 7, 9, 11, 12, and 13 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code as well as out-of-court workouts and collection matters. The lawyers in our Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights Practice Group bring centuries of combined experience to helping creditors protect their legal and financial interests.

Centuries of Experience Representing Creditors

When a customer or client goes out of business or fails to repay its debts when they come due, the financial consequences can be substantial. Even for secured creditors, these scenarios will often present risks for significant financial losses. At Hand Arendall Harrison Sale, we help secured and unsecured creditors repossess payment through all means available. Whether this means working to restructure a customer’s or client’s debt, filing a collection action in civil court, or preserving all available remedies in bankruptcy, we make sure our clients are able to take advantage of every available opportunity to collect as much as possible.

The lawyers in our Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights Practice Group regularly advise and represent creditors on both bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy matters. For example, we routinely assist clients with matters including:

  • Workouts
  • Structuring, protecting and enforcing secured claims and liens
  • Foreclosures
  • Fraudulent transfer actions
  • Involuntary bankruptcy petitions
  • Appointment of trustees and conversions in reorganization cases
  • Collection lawsuits
  • Enforcement of judgments, including garnishments
  • Defense of lender liability lawsuits (including class actions)
  • Defense of preference actions
  • Adversary proceedings
  • All types of commercial litigation

Whether and to what extent workouts, restructurings, foreclosures and other options are available depends heavily on both the nature of the debt at issue and the factual circumstances involved. Timing can be a hugely important factor as well. As bankruptcy and creditors’ rights counsel, we work closely with our clients to explore their options, and then we build and execute custom-tailored legal strategies that are designed to secure favorable results based upon the specific circumstances at hand. We emphasize efficient solutions; and, while the lawyers in our Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights Practice Group are fully prepared to litigate when necessary, we are frequently able to achieve favorable out-of-court resolutions for our clients.
