Our attorneys are often retained to analyze and implement the bankruptcy and workout alternatives available to financially distressed companies. We are frequently called upon to represent debtors in regional and national cases as well as on matters of local significance.
Recent chapter 11 debtor representations include PhoneTel Technologies, Inc. (the first pre-packaged chapter 11 case confirmed under the new guidelines for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York) and Deaconess Hospital, LLC, an acute care hospital in Ohio.
Both our creditor and debtor clients rely on our significant experience in representing borrowers and chapter 11 debtors with respect to restructuring their financial affairs. In addition to our recognized knowledge with the specifics of chapter 11 reorganizations and out-of-court workouts, our activities include providing our clients with advice from the various non-insolvency areas which are now, more than ever, affecting the decisions, tactics and strategies of the players in the insolvency world.
Important non-insolvency areas include federal, state and local tax matters (e.g., availability of loss carryovers and debt forgiveness issues), toxic tort, ERISA, labor, environmental law, fraudulent conveyance and lender liability issues, among other matters. The members of our practice group take great pride in integrating advice on non-insolvency related issues with the matters arising in the bankruptcy and workout context.
