We represent local, regional, national and international clients in resolving both simple and complex problems that are encountered in the course of enforcement of creditors’ rights. Our clients come from all sectors, and include trade creditors, financial institutions, municipalities, utilities, developers, manufacturers, distributors, retailers, and service providers in such matters as bankruptcies, commercial collections, enforcement of money judgments and security interests, residential and commercial real property foreclosures, recovery of collateral, work-outs, loan modifications and forbearance agreements. Our attorneys are experienced commercial litigators. While consensual outcomes are frequently achieved through effective negotiation, we use all of the discovery, motion and trial tools available when ordinary leverage is insufficient to resolve the matter.
We encourage a collaborative approach with our clients including early consultation with client representatives and a thorough review of relevant documents to develop strategies that are tailored to the goals and budget of the client. Our attorneys leverage the firm’s next generation technologies to address client needs on short notice, and to develop pleadings and related materials on demand.
Our attorneys are admitted and appear regularly in state, federal, bankruptcy and appellate courts throughout New York and Massachusetts. The firm’s multiple office platform allows us to provide local representation in any court within the firm’s geographical footprint. We have a deep bench, and as needed, our team draws on lawyers in the firm’s related practice areas for expertise in business services, real estate, environmental issues, trusts and estates, intellectual property issues, and other areas. Our lawyers are active members of local bar associations and national bankruptcy bar associations such as the American Bankruptcy Institute.
