Creditors' Committees

As counsel to official committees of unsecured creditors and holders of equity securities, we draw on our experience, know-how, judgment, creativity and energy to provide effective guidance throughout the Chapter 11 restructuring process.

We have actively represented creditors’ committees in the bankruptcy courts of dozens of states from coast to coast. Past, high-profile cases include matters involving UNR Industries, Federated Department Stores, A.H. Robins, Hartmarx, Stone & Webster, and Bally Fitness. 

Our committee experience has involved a wide spectrum of industries in cases of all sizes. For example, we recently represented the official committees of unsecured creditors in cases involving large continuing-care retirement communities (in which the creditor body included hundreds of senior residents who collectively invested millions in refundable residence deposits).
