As a small to mid-sized office with a significant creditors’ rights, business bankruptcy and receivership practice, we are unique in the Wisconsin market. We have the experience gained from our attorneys’ backgrounds at some of the larger firms in Wisconsin where these attorneys worked on large commercial transactions and some of the most substantial Chapter 11 cases in the country. While working at our firm, these attorneys have expanded and improved their prior experience base. Without the frequent conflicts of interest and institutional policies that are inherent at larger firms, we have a more varied practice and can provide greater flexibility in our representation.
We also have the unique advantage of offices in both the Eastern and Western Districts of Wisconsin. Our firm regularly appears in federal courts in both districts, and our multiple offices allow us to efficiently represent clients in all parts of the state.
We frequently represent secured creditors, creditors committees, unsecured creditors, debtors and other interested parties in all aspects of creditors’ rights, business bankruptcy and receivership law. We regularly represent parties in connection with asset sales in bankruptcy and receivership proceedings.
One of our attorneys is among the very small group of Wisconsin attorneys who act as receivers in Chapter 128 proceedings.
We represented a group of creditors who successfully brought an involuntary petition against a nationally known manufacturer. Subsequently, we were appointed as counsel for the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors. In that role, we were instrumental in negotiating a sale of the company’s assets, arranging a substantial carve-out for unsecured creditors and confirming a plan. Even though the secured obligations of the debtor significantly exceeded the value of its assets, unsecured creditors received a substantial distribution. That company is now flourishing and paying its obligations.
