Creditor Representation

Attorneys Representing Creditors in Business Bankruptcy Proceedings

Protecting the rights of creditors in business bankruptcy cases

The bankruptcy attorneys at Leiderman Shelomith Alexander + Somodevilla, PLLC 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 can help.

Types of creditors we represent

A creditor is any party who is 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
  • Manufacturers
  • Suppliers

We understand that creditors want to recover what is rightfully owed to them. We strive to negotiate workouts to avoid litigation, but, if litigation is necessary, we are prepared to be an advocate in the courtroom.

Creditor rights services

We have extensive experience helping creditors pursue and obtain payment of the debts owed to them by debtors in bankruptcy. Some of the ways we can assist are:

  • 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 that a debt owed is a lost cause simply because the debtor has filed for bankruptcy protection. Let us review the facts surrounding your situation and help you understand your legal options for recovering what is owed to you.
