Bankruptcy & Creditors’ Rights

The attorneys in our Bankruptcy & Creditors’ Rights practice group regularly represent national, regional, and local banks, lenders and other creditors in bankruptcies and insolvency-related proceedings.  We serve as trusted advocates in enforcing loans, leases, liens, and security interests in collateral of all types, and other commercial agreements and in vigorously pursuing all available judicial and non-judicial rights and remedies on behalf of our clients. 

Members of our Bankruptcy & Creditors’ Rights team regularly serve as primary or local counsel before U.S. Bankruptcy Courts and receivership and other insolvency proceedings in all of the three judicial districts of North Carolina. 

We also serve as primary counsel in bankruptcies and insolvency proceedings pending in other states, working in conjunction with local counsel. In fact, one of our attorneys was one of the principal authors of the North Carolina Commercial Receivership Act, which was enacted effective January 1, 2021 and provides a comprehensive statutory scheme as a less costly alternative to a bankruptcy.
