Efficiency on Behalf of Our Clients
Bankruptcy litigation is extremely fast-paced due to the time-sensitive
nature of bankruptcies. Bankruptcy as a standalone issue is not a litigation
matter. However, there are numerous possibilities for litigation within
a bankruptcy case.
The potential for litigation may arise in these, as well as other circumstances:
- The bankruptcy trustee files a lawsuit (in bankruptcy, referred to as an
adversary proceeding) against a non-debtor to obtain estate assets
- An adversary proceeding is initiated against the debtor in a bankruptcy case
- An adversary proceeding is initiated against the bankruptcy trustee
Disputes in bankruptcy and creditors' rights can also arise that do
not result in adversary proceedings. These are simply referred to as "contested
matters," and some examples include; creditor petitions for automatic
stay relief in order to foreclose on a property as collateral and trustee
desires to assume an executory contact.
Handling bankruptcy litigation and disputes requires a knowledge not only
of the bankruptcy code, but also of the United States Code.
