Restructuring business ventures

In turbulent times, businesses need options to stay afloat. They also need experienced legal counsel to guide them through their options and the potential turmoil surrounding bankruptcy and restructuring proceedings. They need advice from the seasoned bankruptcy team at Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig.

Our law firm represents clients in all aspects of insolvency proceedings, distressed asset transactions, and related litigation. Our work includes preference and fraudulent transfer litigation, subordination, and related matters. We also represent debtors and creditors from a variety of industries in out-of-court reorganizations and workouts and in-court Chapter 11 proceedings.

Our experience in creditor’s rights, corporate insolvency, and restructuring

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig’s bankruptcy lawyers have decades of collective experience appearing in bankruptcy and related matters and reorganizing and restructuring businesses. Many of our bankruptcy attorneys are former business owners and finance professionals, so they have legal experience as well as practical business skills. This means that our bankruptcy team can use their understanding of your needs to strengthen their advocacy on your behalf.

Our law firm advocates for creditors’ rights in a variety of ways. We assist with claims filing, claims disputes, and protecting secured and unsecured creditors’ rights throughout the Chapter 11 plan confirmation process. We also represent debtors in formal Chapter 11 proceedings, including cash collateral hearings, motions to approve debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing, hearings relating to the disposition of assets, hearings seeking approval of disclosure statements, plan confirmation proceedings, and claim objections.

When it comes to out-of-court reorganizations and workouts, our attorneys work to understand the specifics of your financial situation and advise on bankruptcy, other alternatives, and potential reorganization and workout strategies.
