As the COVID-19 pandemic causes strains on the economy, individuals and companies, large and small, Day Pitney's Bankruptcy and Restructuring Group serves the needs of creditors, debtors, investors and purchasers of debts and assets. Drawing on the combined experience of lawyers in our finance, bankruptcy, real estate, tax and business law practices, we use a proactive approach that emphasizes consensus building and the efficient achievement of "win-win" outcomes where possible, but which can, where required, include a very strong and aggressive litigation strategy. We counsel parties involved in distressed transactions on how to restructure the deal either within or outside the bankruptcy process. We provide advice to our clients in structuring securitizations, project finance transactions, commercial leases and other bankruptcy remote transactions in order to minimize the impact of bankruptcy, as well as assisting creditors in controlling and disposing of collateral and assisting buyers in the purchase of distressed assets.
The Bankruptcy and Restructuring Group serves numerous industries, with particular experience in the airline industry, energy sector, hospitality industry, retail, tax-exempt organizations, and real estate and municipal restructurings and workouts.
