Practice/Industry Group Overview
MehaffyWeber offers a sophisticated bankruptcy practice that maximizes our client's debt recovery, whether pre-bankruptcy or post-bankruptcy. We adapt to the changing needs of our clients and flexibly provide trial skills or dealmaking expertise as necessary. We represent clients in bankruptcy court and in other venues as the need arises.
We represent our clients in all aspects of bankruptcy litigation including preferences, avoidance, transfer and trustee claims, against officers and directors. Our attorneys constantly assess the facts presented to determine whether our clients should litigate, or settle to optimize debt recovery.
As special counsel in large chapter 11 cases, our firm has extensive experience representing trustees in bankruptcy, debtors in possession and creditor-investors. Our bankruptcy team has been involved in litigation asserting claims against accountants, securities brokers, investment bankers and their principals for millions of dollars in damages arising out of alleged securities violations, professional malpractice, and fraud.
MehaffyWeber litigates these issues on terms best suited to the client - most often on a contingency-fee basis. The firm also has relationships with other contingent-fee counsel with specialized expertise and, when advantageous to the client, associates with those counsel.
