You cannot make the best decisions without a complete understanding of the process, the options, and the ramifications. Proper planning can help to prevent or minimize the massive disruption and investment of time, energy, and money involved in any financial restructuring. The time to address bankruptcy issues is before the start of the insolvency proceeding. The best way to prevent financial and legal problems is to prepare for them.

Our bankruptcy-related activities include advising secured and unsecured creditors and debtors with respect to their rights and obligations under state law and the Bankruptcy Code, as well as conducting litigation in the bankruptcy courts on a variety of matters, including the enforceability of rights under executory contracts and leases, obtaining administrative expense priorities, super priorities, liens, cross-collateralization under Section 364 of the Bankruptcy Code and claim objection contests.

An understanding and appreciation of all aspects of business and business law are fundamental to understanding the legal process of financial restructuring. Our business perspective is the foundation of CGA Law Firm’s unique culture. Our bankruptcy lawyers work regularly with our corporate and real estate attorneys in analyzing and drafting documents and structuring transactions in a work-out, as well as in a bankruptcy context.
