The Bankruptcy Lawyers: the premier portal to recommended bankruptcy, restructuring and creditors rights lawyers, practice area news and legal insights:
Representing clients in bankruptcy and insolvency situations not only requires specialized knowledge of bankruptcy law, but also requires expertise in litigation and corporate law. Bankruptcy lawyers routinely address questions involving debt finance, securities, transactional, and tax law to assist clients in understanding their respective rights in a restructuring. At the same time, because a court process underlies the bankruptcy system, a bankruptcy lawyer must be skilled as a litigator and as a negotiator. Finally, and perhaps most significantly, a bankruptcy lawyer’s advice is fundamentally commercial. Thus, a bankruptcy lawyer must be sensitive to and understand the nuances of each distressed business, including its unique financial and operational aspects.
We assist business directors, in-house counsel, and law firms by providing a concise and up-to-date guide to leading bankruptcy, restructuring and creditors’ rights lawyers across the country. Our research covers all 50 states, with featured attorneys being selected based on the results of peer nominations, in-depth research and client feedback. Our selection process is independent and it is not possible to request entry into the guide.
