Our bankruptcy and creditors’ rights team, together with assistance from our corporate, commercial litigation, finance, regulatory, tax, and other specialties, provides clients with creative solutions to complex issues affecting distressed businesses or funds throughout the United States and abroad. The team’s wide experience, industry knowledge, and multiple skill sets are used effectively and efficiently to achieve our clients’ goals. Whether the representation is of a debtor, secured lender or lender group, an official committee of unsecured creditors or shareholders, a buyer of assets, or a plan sponsor, in bankruptcy or out of court, the Venable team provides excellent ideas, solutions, and results to our clients.
Venable attorneys lead troubled companies, debtors, secured and unsecured creditors, official and ad hoc committees of creditors and equity holders, and asset purchasers through the maze of substantive, procedural, interpersonal, and practical issues that arise during a restructuring or reorganization. Having been involved in numerous complex reorganizations throughout the United States and abroad, we consistently bring a results-driven, practical approach to every matter (large or small) that combines responsiveness, efficiency, and thorough knowledge of shifting laws and regulations in virtually every industry – this has become the standard for succeeding in complex Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings and high-stakes creditors’ rights litigation.
Complementing our vast experience in restructuring and reorganization, we are assisted by our attorneys in other practice areas, including commercial litigation, tax, ERISA, securities law, intellectual property, real estate, environmental, labor and employment, and regulatory, to assist our clients in achieving their business objectives. Our team delivers the kind of personalized, focused attention normally associated with boutique firms while demonstrating the deep knowledge, relationships, and capabilities of a large organization.
