We believe that your case requires a unique approach. Our objective is always to achieve the best net return for you by utilizing practical and business-oriented legal strategies.

We have the ability to represent chapter 11 debtors, committees, secured lenders and other creditors in proceedings in Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia.   Our attorneys have represented corporate debtors, official committees of unsecured creditors, ad hoc committees of bondholders, chapter 11 trustees, lenders, and virtually every creditor constituency in chapter 11 bankruptcy practice and litigation.   We have significant experience in all aspects of the bankruptcy process; preparing chapter 11 bankruptcy cases for filing, first day motions practice and regular motions practice, discovery, drafting plans and disclosure statements, plan confirmation, valuation disputes, contested matters and all aspects of litigation that may arise in a bankruptcy case, as well as bankruptcy appeals.  We also represent liquidating trustees, liquidating agents, and responsible persons in all aspects of post-confirmation litigation and governance, chapter 11 trustees, chapter 7 trustees, as well as purchasers of distressed debt or entities.

Comprehensive Representation

When the bankruptcy lawyers at Offit Kurman Attorneys At Law represent your interests in business transactions, we provide an in-depth assessment of the risks associated with the insolvency of the other parties to the transaction. No matter how remote that risk appears at the time of the transaction, that assessment is a worthwhile investment. In fact, it may lead to changes to the transaction that provide you with substantially greater protections if another party becomes insolvent or is otherwise unable (or unwilling) to perform its obligations. In some cases, in order to enhance the value that we bring to you, we utilize close relationships with sources of capital, investment bankers, or other professionals whose services benefit you in the transaction.

Bankruptcy Litigation with an Advantage

In addition to having an in-depth knowledge of bankruptcy laws and related areas of law, every bankruptcy lawyer at Offit Kurman Attorneys At Law is equipped with the strong litigation skills needed to give you an advantage. We handle all types of bankruptcy litigation matters aggressively and efficiently, and that is what sets us apart. Whether our client is asserting a claim or defending an action, we understand that litigation puts stress on your resources, so we aggressively and efficiently strive to achieve an advantage that leads to the best net result for you. The main focus of our bankruptcy litigation strategy is to achieve tangible results for you.
