Combining keen judgment and an efficient solutions’ focus, Olshan’s Bankruptcy Litigation attorneys collaborate with the firm’s Bankruptcy & Financial Restructuring Group, offering in-depth knowledge of bankruptcy laws and procedure with extensive trial, mediation and negotiation experience to obtain favorable resolutions for clients.

Our Experienced Team

We have substantial experience representing all of the primary constituencies in the bankruptcy process, including debtors, creditors, shareholders, trustees and other key stakeholders. 

We litigate and try adversary proceedings and prosecute and defend preference and fraudulent transfer actions. Our litigators also regularly handle disputes over cash collateral, advise clients on debtor-in-possession financings, challenge automatic stays and litigate D&O liability, successor liability, alter ego, avoidance action, as well as asset sale disputes, lien avoidance, claim objections, fraud claims and more.

Steering Through Bankruptcy Litigation Challenges

Olshan’s Bankruptcy Litigation attorneys understand the distinctive characteristics and challenges posed by bankruptcy litigation. It’s fast-paced, high-stakes, with esoteric rules and procedures. Our team members have the depth, skill and experience to navigate the challenges, complete complex discovery swiftly and prepare cases for argument or trial in months or even weeks, if necessary. 

Handling Litigation in the Context of Overall Client Strategy

Our litigators are well-versed in managing the interplay between litigation, transactional strategies and the complexities involved in restructuring and dispositions of assets. We work seamlessly with the Bankruptcy & Financial Restructuring Group to develop an overall strategy that aligns litigation and bankruptcy administration efforts in pursuit of the clients’ goals.
