Practice areas

Insolvency & Reorganization

Insolvency is a crisis, but it can also be an opportunity. We represent various stakeholders in insolvency proceedings, including debtors, creditors, developers, investors, fiduciaries, financial institutions, and landlords. We also offer custom, cutting-edge solutions for businesses undergoing reorganization, and help enterprises in distress return to a state of solvency.

Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors

If your company is potentially facing insolvency, you may be able to avoid filing for bankruptcy by leveraging Florida’s Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors (ABC) statute. ABCs allow the business a say in who is appointed as fiduciary, and are typically faster and more cost effective than traditional bankruptcy.
Our lawyers represent a range of participants in ABC proceedings, including the assignors, assignees, investors looking to purchase a distressed company, and creditors. We routinely consider the ABC process as an alternative to a federal bankruptcy.

Bankruptcy Matters & Business Restructuring

Bankruptcy is often thought of as a crisis, but it is also an opportunity. We work quickly and strategically to help our clients stabilize their struggling businesses. We also help creditors, investors, and financial institutions recover monies owed or property being used by a debtor who has filed for bankruptcy. We also have a deep bench of experience representing all of the stakeholders in every aspect of the restructuring process.

Bankruptcy Litigation

We are not only experienced litigators, we also understand the intricacies of bankruptcy law—a rare combination. We excel at handling bankruptcy matters that involve litigating contested issues and conducting evidentiary hearings or trials. These capabilities create opportunities for our clients that are rarely found at law firms our size.

Creditor’s Rights

Our attorneys have an extensive background in federal and state law remedies, and have represented an array of creditors in state and federal matters, including enforcement of contracts, commercial foreclosures, and collection of judgments.

Fiduciary Representation

We represent receivers, trustees, and other court-appointed fiduciaries in state and federal courts, and help counsel fiduciaries on their powers and duties, ensuring that they are fulfilling their obligations to the court, governmental agencies, and other parties.

Fraudulent Transfers, Preference Claims, & Clawback Actions

Uncovering fraudulent transfers and investigating hidden assets is our speciality. We are well versed in prosecuting and defending fraudulent transfers, preference claims, and clawback actions.

Insolvency Transactions

Insolvency transactions carry unique procedures and risks that our attorneys can help you navigate. We represent a variety of clients in this space, including debtors, lenders, investors, committees, as well as buyers and sellers of distressed debt and assets.


Workouts are an alternative to bankruptcy, and can potentially help restructure your business debt without involving the courts. Our team has extensive experience negotiating with creditors and lenders, as well as representing them.
