Creditors' Rights and Bankruptcy

Creditors' Rights

Almost all businesses face unpaid loans and breached contracts at some point in time. Clients trust the Creditors' Rights attorneys at SWTW to minimize the financial, personal, and long-term impact of debtors that are unable or unwilling to meet their obligations.

Our Creditors' Rights practice has a strong record of success in protecting the interests of clients in the bankruptcy context, as well as in non-bankruptcy matters such as workouts, modifications, foreclosures, and state and federal litigation. We distinguish ourselves from other firms by our ability to quickly analyze all issues facing a creditor in a particular situation, such as:

  • Jurisdictional legal constraints
  • Value of collateral
  • Competing security interests and claim priority
  • Potential impact on other business partners

We then weigh all options against the cost to the client, and determine a strategy to produce the best outcome.
