Sherman & Howard’s bankruptcy group represents clients in all phases of insolvency proceedings, both inside and outside of federal bankruptcy cases, and assists clients with complex merger and acquisition transactions involving assets and entities in financial distress. When the prospect of insolvency arises, Sherman & Howard’s bankruptcy and insolvency attorneys have the expertise, experience, and practical skills necessary to help clients achieve their goals and avoid financial risks. In bankruptcy cases, we represent secured creditors, unsecured creditors, contracting parties, asset purchasers, creditors committees, and trustees. Sherman & Howard attorneys also represent businesses and individuals as debtors in bankruptcy cases. Outside of bankruptcy cases, our attorneys regularly represent clients (secured and unsecured creditors, as well as debtors) in restructurings and workouts involving complex real and personal property assets, including intangible and intellectual property assets. We frequently work with purchasers of entire businesses and discrete assets, as well as lenders seeking recoveries on their collateral, to structure sales in situations overshadowed by financial distress, including foreclosure sales under Article 9 of the UCC, and purchases from state court receivers. In state court proceedings, we represent lenders, borrowers, guarantors, and receivers in complex commercial litigation matters when loans are in default or other financial difficulties arise. Our bankruptcy, insolvency, and creditors’ rights attorneys are the professionals that sophisticated business clients turn to, in order to accomplish their business strategies when balance sheets are in the red.
