Practice Groups


Rivkin Radler’s Bankruptcy Practice Group provides innovative and thoughtful legal solutions to creditors, debtors, lenders and principals in business reorganizations, restructurings, workouts, acquisitions and liquidations, both in and out of court. Our business bankruptcy lawyers are engaged in insolvency matters on behalf of a diverse array of clients, including both publicly and privately held companies.

Our bankruptcy and corporate restructuring attorneys have earned the trust and respect of bankruptcy courts across the country. With experience in every aspect of bankruptcy and creditor’s rights law—including representing debtors, secured creditors, unsecured creditors, creditors’ committees, insurance companies, distressed asset purchasers, plan proponents and opponents, landlords, equipment lessors and equity holders—we are able to meet our clients’ needs in any restructuring situation.

We represent litigants in contested matters arising under the Bankruptcy Code, such as lift stay motions, avoidance actions, breach of fiduciary duty claims and property rights disputes. Our clients include retailers, manufacturers, distributors, financial institutions, credit unions, insurance companies, real estate owners and developers, restaurants, physicians and medical practices, nonprofits, unions and health and welfare funds.

Our clients have full access to Rivkin Radler’s substantial, multidisciplinary litigation group, and the firm’s litigators often take an active role in adversary proceedings in the bankruptcy court, uniting the firm’s in-depth bankruptcy knowledge with its broad federal litigation experience. Our bankruptcy attorneys also work in tandem with our corporate and real estate attorneys to bring their collective experience to bear on restructurings, liquidations and the purchase and sale of assets in Chapter 7 and 11 proceedings.

As business bankruptcy attorneys, our approach leads to efficient and cost-effective strategies for our clients, with a view toward minimizing the expenses and time spent in bankruptcy proceedings.
