Bankruptcy/Creditor’s Rights

Bankruptcy and creditor’s rights litigation often involves secured and unsecured creditors, debtors, committees and/or trustees contesting the operations of the debtor and the legitimacy and priority of claims in relation to each other.

Meissner Tierney has advocated for and protected the rights of plaintiffs and defendants in adversary proceedings, chapter 11 reorganizations, chapter 7 and chapter 13 cases, creditor disputes, foreclosures and receiverships.  We routinely represent clients in actions involving liens, forced sales, garnishments and fraudulent transfers.

Beyond our representation in matters directly involving the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, we recognize that bankruptcy is a potential outcome in any business dispute.  Accordingly, our litigators work closely with clients to identify and minimize the adverse effects of a bankruptcy in litigation.  Our goal is always to prevent a hollow victory.
