The extensive experience of Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C.'s Business Restructuring, Creditors’ Rights & Bankruptcy Team extends to all matters that concern advising, consulting or doing business with financially troubled enterprises. This experience includes every variety of state and federal insolvency proceedings, Chapter 11 and 7 bankruptcies, workouts and restructurings. We have represented lenders, creditors' committees, suppliers, lessors, purchasers, equity holders, corporate and individual creditors and debtors.
Our bankruptcy attorneys understand and perform services in substantive financial areas of law involving secured and unsecured lending, asset-based lending, real estate financing, banking and Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). This considerable experience, combined with our commercial litigation background, provides our clients with a combination of procedural experience in business reorganization workouts or bankruptcies and substantial knowledge of credit facilities and financial restructuring.
While we believe it is important to represent our clients aggressively, we find that possessing the reputation and flexibility to reach a cost effective business solution is equally important. These are especially vital "differences" that we bring to our representation of clients in bankruptcies and workouts. Thinking "outside the box" to achieve a solution is one of our strengths. Our approach to the organization of our bankruptcy and workout area makes us particularly good at this. Our attorneys developed substantive business negotiating skills through their experience not only in litigation but in commercial finance and commercial transactions where many of them began their careers.
When appropriate, we make use of our Business & Commercial Litigation Team
, although our business reorganization attorneys regularly engage in commercial litigation involving issues such as priorities, preferences, fraudulent transfers, foreclosures, fraud and nondischargeability, UCC rights and similar litigation.
Additionally, our practice has a proven record of interacting with the other practice disciplines in the firm. It draws upon the special resources and experience offered by practice areas including litigation, tax, corporate securities, lending and environmental.
