Representation of Creditor Committees

Our attorneys have represented creditors’ committees in Chapter 11 cases and out-of-court workouts in New Jersey and in other jurisdictions. As the attorneys for creditors’ committees, we recognize that the primary goal is to maximize the value to unsecured creditors while minimizing the expenses associated with doing so.

No matter the size or scope of a distressed business, our attorneys have the ability to successfully negotiate the insolvency process to maximize value on behalf of our constituencies. – Michael E. Holt

Our attorneys have represented official creditors’ committees and ad hoc creditors’ committees in  large real estate restructuring involving properties located throughout the United States and New Jersey. They also have experience with businesses in industries such as retail, manufacturing, transportation and tourism.

The experience of our attorneys and the focus of our practice allow us to provide superior legal services on behalf of creditors’ committees in cases of all industries and sizes.

  • Represent creditors’ committees in Chapter 11 cases and in out-of-court workouts.
  • Well respected in all areas of fiduciary representation including Liquidating Trustees, Plan Administrators, and Oversight Committees.
