Bankruptcy and Debt Restructuring

Restructurings and bankruptcies are a combination of business transaction and litigation. For the best representation, the attorneys must have both broad litigation and practical business law experience. At the same time, clients are well-served to have a firm that can also draw on other disciplines, such as real estate, corporate finance, and employment law, to navigate all of the aspects that bankruptcy and debt resolution involve.

The Schreeder, Wheeler & Flint bankruptcy attorneys have a diverse background of experience and expertise in business and real estate law, as well as litigation, and have tried numerous jury and non-jury cases in state and federal courts throughout the United States. Our attorneys have also experienced and litigated all sides of almost all issues that arise in bankruptcy and insolvency cases. And, in addition to our experienced bankruptcy lawyers, we are also able to draw upon lawyers experienced in labor and employment law, real estate, mergers and acquisitions, and securities and corporate finance for special expertise when necessary.

We have vast experience in handling virtually every type of issue that arises in bankruptcy reorganization and liquidation cases and have represented lenders, debtors, trade creditors, secured creditors, landlords, and other parties in these proceedings. We have experience litigating contested Chapter 11 confirmation proceedings, debtor-in-possession financing requests, fraudulent conveyance issues, valuation disputes, preferences, fraudulent transfers, lease assumptions and rejections, equitable subordination, requests for relief from the automatic stay, contested matters and adversary proceedings, appointments of a trustee, and retiree issues.

Among other representative experience in this practice area, the firm recently concluded a long-running representation of the Chapter 7 trustee appointed in the bankruptcy for Pike Nursery Holding, LLC.

The group is led by John A. Christy. For any questions or additional information about our bankruptcy and debt restructuring practice, please contact John at 404-681-3450 or
