Bankruptcy Litigation

On behalf of creditors, attorneys in our group have handled matters ranging from the filing and defense of proofs of claim to the litigation and negotiation of cutting edge issues involving the remand of creditor litigation from bankruptcy courts to state courts, obtaining administrative claims treatment for obligations in rejected contracts, and the exclusion of property from a debtor’s estate, paving the way for higher recoveries outside of bankruptcy court. Work with a business bankruptcy lawyer from Eaton & Van Winkle, and you get someone with experience in all phases of litigation.

We counsel companies, shareholders and asset purchasers concerning the use and operation of the Bankruptcy Code, state dissolution statutes and common law principles to reduce the risk of exposure to creditor claims. We also counsel business owners and asset purchasers concerning the operation and effect of bankruptcy laws, corporate dissolution statutes, fraudulent conveyance laws and alter-ego and successor liability principles regarding means to reduce their potential exposure to creditor claims. Our capabilities in this area are more fully described in the separate Creditors Rights, Lender Liability and Bankruptcy primary practice descriptions.
