Responding to current issues in bankruptcy and restructuring, including the high costs associated with the process, requires speed and agility and the ability to implement strategic alternatives to bankruptcy. With extensive experience in receiverships and out-of-court workouts, members of Day Pitney’s Bankruptcy and Restructuring practice group are uniquely positioned to evaluate, advise on and implement strategic alternatives to formal proceedings in Bankruptcy Court. We move quickly by taking a proactive approach to our clients’ issues with a focus on consensus building, where possible, and strong and aggressive litigation, when necessary.
Additionally, complex bankruptcy and restructuring issues require lawyers who are able to identify and respond to a broad range of issues across many areas of practice. Day Pitney’s Bankruptcy and Restructuring lawyers have cross-disciplinary training in commercial transactions, real estate, finance, business litigation, class actions, public bond financings and healthcare that allows them to address the diverse issues presented in their engagements and to offer creative and strategic solutions to each client’s problem.
By regularly taking on matters adverse to much larger firms, Day Pitney’s Bankruptcy and Restructuring practice group has gained the reputation as a “giant killer.” Our practice involves the representation of a wide range of regional, national and international clients, including finance companies, commercial landlords and real estate developers, insurance companies, major retailers and manufacturers, and participants in bond financing transactions. Our attorneys also represent official creditors’ committees, acquirers of assets, receivers and bankruptcy trustees. Our clients rely on us to assist them in all aspects of restructuring, bankruptcy, and creditors’ rights, helping them resolve complex financial and commercial problems, enforce their rights as secured lenders and major unsecured creditors, and reach nontraditional solutions to those problems.
Day Pitney represents creditors, including financial institutions, banks, mortgage companies, automobile lenders and retailers, credit card companies, and collection companies in disputes brought under state and federal consumer protection laws, as well as against common-law claims. That representation includes the defense of individual and class actions. Clients also call on us for tax and labor advice for their human resources departments, defense in housing discrimination claims, and prosecution of claims against former employees who violate noncompete agreements.
