Our bankruptcy attorneys at Leiderman Shelomith Alexander + Somodevilla, PLLC are equipped to provide creditors and other non-debtor third parties with advice on a wide range of issues. We represent lenders, financial institutions, asset purchasers, creditor committees, and strategic buyers in insolvency-related matters. When financial difficulties begin, we negotiate manageable solutions. Whatever type of claim a creditor has against a bankruptcy debtor, we have the experience and skill necessary to help you find a workable solution.
Types of Creditors We Represent
By definition, a creditor is any party owed money by another person or entity. Creditors of bankrupt debtors have several avenues for recovering what is owed to them.
Examples of creditors we can help include:
- Mortgage holders
- Commercial or residential landlords
- Condominium associations
- Homeowners associations
- Equipment or vehicle lessors
- Secured lenders
- Unsecured lenders
- Financial institutions
- Credit card companies
We understand that creditors want to recover what they are rightfully owed. We strive to negotiate workouts to avoid litigation, but, if litigation is necessary, we are prepared to serve as knowledgeable, aggressive advocates in the courtroom.
Creditor Rights Services
We have extensive experience helping creditors pursue and obtain payment for the debts owed to them by debtors in bankruptcy.
Some of the ways we can assist include:
- Filing a proof of claim
- Seeking relief from the automatic stay
- Defending a preference lawsuit
- Negotiating a lease assumption or rejection
- Obtaining adequate protection when the debtor seeks the use of cash collateral
- Taking the Rule 2004 examination of a debtor
- Requesting the turnover of collateral
- Objecting to confirmation of a Chapter 11 plan
- Filing a motion to dismiss the bankruptcy proceeding
No creditor should assume a debt owed is a lost cause simply because the debtor filed for bankruptcy protection. Let us review the facts and details of your situation to better help you understand your legal options for recovering what you were owed.
