Bankruptcy & Creditors' Rights

Return to Practice Description

Goldberg Kohn's creditors' rights practice is a recognized leader in the middle-market, serving banks, finance companies, hedge funds and alternative lenders.

The Group's client list surpasses that of many large firms that compete in this space. The Bankruptcy and Creditors' Rights Group punches above its weight by dedicating itself to the creditor-side of the practice; our restructuring professionals do not try to squeeze into all types of insolvency roles.  After decades of this focus, the Group is able to anticipate problems and know in advance how to bring about the best possible creditor outcomes.  As a result, the Group has developed broad and deep relationships throughout the middle-market lending industry.

This success is also made possible by the firm's top-tier Commercial Finance and Real Estate groups, who work closely with our Bankruptcy and Creditors' Rights Group in workouts and distressed transactions. These collaborations create deal teams that are second-to-none in relevant depth for these situations, providing cradle-to-grave-to-cradle services, including debt-for-equity transactions happening by design (loan-to-own) or by default. 

Whether or not the firm originally documented a deal, agents, lenders and other participants seek the Group's result-driven and efficient approach to troubled credits. Goldberg Kohn's bankruptcy lawyers are intimately familiar with the nuances of loan documents, credit policies, market trends, and the politics of syndicated situations. Inter- and intra- class lender negotiations and disputes are a particular specialty.  In this regard, the Group is helping lead development of unitranche lending and shaping the market for agreements among lenders. Because our bankruptcy professionals are so steeped in creditors' rights issues, they are able to identify and execute strategies with the speed our clients' distressed deals require.
