Bankruptcy and Creditors Rights Litigation

Dechert’s bankruptcy trial lawyers have the experience, skill and creativity to resolve cutting-edge issues and achieve successful results at the trial and appellate levels for clients in complex and often highly contested bankruptcy cases. We represent parties in litigation matters involving liquidations, reorganizations, restructurings and a wide variety of compromises and disputed claim settlements. Among the issues that we have addressed through litigation are fraudulent conveyance claims, debtor-in-possession and other types of financings, asset sales, equitable subordination, application of the automatic stay, third-party releases, the appointment of trustees, substantive consolidation, plan confirmation, exclusivity, preferences, executory contracts and recharacterization of debt and asset valuation.

Our team is especially adept at handling financial investigations, extensive discovery, witness and expert testimony, depositions and expedited cases, as well as handling complex insolvency disputes, including the resolution of distressed loans. Applying our litigation skill and extensive knowledge of the Bankruptcy Code, we help creditors maximize their recoveries, assist debtors in limiting their liability and preserving their business viability and assert the interests of other parties impacted by bankruptcy issues.
