Primary Areas of Practice

Corporate Restructuring and Bankruptcy

At Frederic Dorwart, Lawyers PLLC, Corporate Restructuring and Bankruptcy is a wide-ranging, business-focused practice. We have represented many of the disparate interests that become involved in complex corporate restructuring and bankruptcy, including secured creditors, creditors’ committees, debtors, Chapter 11 trustees, Indenture Trustees for both secured first lien debt, secured subordinated debt and unsecured debt, lenders providing debtor-in-possession post-petition financing, unsecured creditors, investors, and purchasers of companies and assets in bankruptcy. The bankruptcy process is one of the tools available in a distressed debt situation, but it is not always the right tool. We have experience in many out-of-court workout arrangements, including out-of-court divestitures, mergers, acquisitions and re-financings. Our Corporate Restructuring and Bankruptcy practice can also take advantage of our experienced litigation teams, being involved in adversarial proceedings arising within bankruptcy cases, as well as general commercial litigation, in both state and federal courts. We can determine the proper strategy or combination of strategies to resolve complex distressed financial situations, and then execute the strategy from start to finish.
