Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy disputes are typically very complex, involve high risk, and move very rapidly under close scrutiny from the courts. The issues being litigated tend to focus on valuation and or forensic examination of the flow of money into and out of a debtor. Bankruptcy is often used to deal with mass-tort cases, onerous amounts of debt, and misuse of company proceeds. Post-confirmation litigation trusts, are being established at a rapid pace, increasing the risk of distressed company litigation.
