Bankruptcy and Insolvency

One of Dunn Law P.A.’s core strengths is in its Bankruptcy and Insolvency Practice

Achieving optimal resolutions in bankruptcy and insolvency matters require diligence, efficiency, and know-how, all of which we at Dunn Law PA take pride in.  We work with clients on all sides of the table in liquidations, restructurings, out-of-court workouts, and other insolvency-related matters.

It’s difficult to navigate the minutia of bankruptcy and insolvency law, and even more difficult without effective counsel.  We’re here to help craft effective solutions and achieve optimal outcomes.  We work closely with our clients to evaluate the risks, costs, benefits, and implications of not just bankruptcy but also non-bankruptcy alternatives.  While bankruptcy offers an array of benefits to a client in distress, if there is a practicable non-bankruptcy solution to achieve your goal, we’ll work with you to find the most expedient and effective solution.

We take time to comprehensively understand the nature of our clients’ issues, financial and operational conditions, and their goals in each matter and thoroughly review all viable tools at their disposal and options available to them.  We strive to provide our clients all the information and counseling they need to make an informed decision.

Bankruptcy Litigation: Dunn Law PA’s bankruptcy and insolvency litigation practice concentrates on insolvency cases, including adversary proceedings related to preferences and fraudulent transfers, discharge and dischargeability, among other complex disputes.

Non-Bankruptcy Alternatives:  In addition to bankruptcy, Dunn Law PA assists companies and other parties involved in non-bankruptcy matters related to insolvency, including receiverships and assignments.  We work with all types of interested parties including the insolvent company, the assignee responsible for managing and selling the assets, prospective purchasers of liquidated assets or the company itself, and creditors who are seeking payment of debt.

Trustees & Fiduciaries:  Trustees and other fiduciaries play a critical role in the successful administration of insolvency related matters.  Our firm’s core competency is in representing these parties in Chapter 7’s, Chapter 11’s, and Receiverships.  We offer a full host of services including representation in administering an Estate, liquidating and monetizing estate assets, preference and fraudulent transfer litigation, discharge & dischargeability litigation, conducting Section 363 asset sales, and objecting to proofs of claims.

Individual Debtors:  We have a wealth of experience representing individual debtors in out-of-court settlements with creditors, and when need be, representing in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Business Debtors:  Dunn Law PA counsels distressed businesses in various alternatives to maximize the benefits to which they are entitled under applicable law.  We’re able to guide struggling businesses through commercial restructurings to a successful conclusion.

Creditors:  If not handled properly, creditors are often left holding the bag with little to show for it.  Without proper representation, creditors often are left taking substantial losses on their claims.  We work with secured and unsecured creditors in all phases of bankruptcy and insolvency situations in order to best protect their rights.

Purchasers & Investors:  While it’s unfortunate for individuals and companies to have to confront distressed financial circumstances, such situations provide unique opportunities.  However, opportunities in this area are often fraught with issues and obstacles requiring untangling and careful navigation, coupled with a need for a thorough understanding of the ins and outs of the distressed asset space.  We work closely with prospective purchasers and investors to secure an array of assets that may come available for sale, ranging from real property, personal property, mortgages, claims, and judgements. We conduct thorough diligence and help spot any potential pitfalls from the outset to minimize exposure to risk and liability, while also ardently negotiating to maximize out clients’ returns.
