The bankruptcy or insolvency of a business, tenant, vendor, customer, or supplier affects every business at one time or another. Meyers Roman’s Creditors’ Rights & Bankruptcy attorneys provide counsel to lenders and businesses across a wide range of industries, including manufacturing, professional services, real estate, and construction. We represent creditors in resolving business disputes prior to litigation, and should the dispute move to the next level, we aggressively advocate for our clients in court. In addition, we help our clients create proactive strategies that mitigate the complications of bankruptcy or insolvency to their businesses in the future.
Our attorneys draw on their strong record of achieving positive results in litigating creditors’ claims to judgment, including receivership matters, business and contract litigation, fraudulent transfer litigation, and bankruptcy claims. We assist clients with collection matters, receiver representation, obtaining appointment of receivers, and asset recovery. We also counsel clients on post-judgment enforcement measures, such as garnishments, charging orders, judgment liens, replevin actions, foreclosures, and executions against property.
We aggressively represent creditors’ interests in bankruptcy litigation matters, such as defending preference claims, preparing proofs of claim, litigating adversary proceedings including objections to discharge, seeking relief from stay, and pursuing asset sales.
Our attorneys have worked on all sides of receivership matters and bankruptcy litigation, giving us a 360-degree appreciation for the issues our clients face in creditors’ rights and bankruptcy matters.
