We offer extensive experience in the area of corporate bankruptcy and bankruptcy litigation. We have represented debtors, creditors, and trustees in just about all matters that arise in a bankruptcy case, including motions from relief from stay on behalf of lessors and banks, abandonment of estate property, motions for the use of cash collateral on behalf of debtors, objections to claims to reclamation claims on behalf of vendors, structured dismissal of cases, objections to plan confirmations, among other matters.

In particular, we have handled hundreds of adversary proceedings involving preferences, fraudulent conveyances, interpleader disputes over insurance proceeds, lien avoidance actions involving real estate and personalty, and the prosecution of modifications to collective bargaining agreements pursuant to Section 1113 of the Bankruptcy Code. We have also litigated numerous appeals of bankruptcy court decisions before the district courts in New York, New Jersey and Delaware.
