Zealous. Determined. Relentless.

In the course of our representation of bankruptcy trustees, debtors and other fiduciaries, our clients look to Forman Holt to pursue causes of action to recover assets for the benefit of a debtor’s creditors.  These actions include recovering fraudulent and other avoidable transfers, and pursuing active participants and co-conspirators in a wide variety of frauds.

In other cases, we are called on to defend individuals and entities who have been sued by debtors, trustees or other fiduciaries.

In either scenario, our attorneys aggressively represent the interests of our clients.  This includes looking for creative and realistic alternatives to litigation to resolve hotly disputed matters and to avoid the time and costs of litigation, if possible.

We do not limit our practice to representing plaintiffs or representing defendants. We represent each client according to their particular needs and do so skillfully, aggressively and sensibly.

Our hard-hitting yet practical approach to litigation derives from representation of both plaintiffs and defendants in recovery actions.  This dual experience provides our attorneys with a unique perspective and a specific understanding and anticipation of the needs of and arguments made by the opposing party.

The members of our firm who practice in this field have handled these types of matters for more than 20 years and they are eager to put their knowledge and experience to work for you or your company.
