Bankruptcy and Financial Restructuring

Spencer Fane attorneys guide both creditors and debtors through bankruptcy proceedings when alternative approaches are not an option, allowing clients to focus on operations and move past financial distress and onto the next phase of their business.

Our team can help clients navigate all aspects of Chapter 11 bankruptcy and resulting reorganization or sales, Chapter 7 liquidation of business, and Chapter 9 situations involving political and governmental entities. We represent debtors in possession, secured creditors, receivers, creditors’ committees, and Chapter 11 trustees, and our firm’s ability to handle complex receivership situations is especially valuable to clients in Chapter 9 proceedings.

No matter who we represent in cases of financial distress, we keep staffing lean while maintaining a focus on results in line with the client’s business objectives. Drawing on our depth of experience, we have attorneys with a business background that can provide effective counsel that benefits the client’s operations in addition to dealing with legal aspects related to bankruptcy proceedings.

We understand all aspects of bankruptcy proceedings and what it can mean for a business. Whether a company has $2 million, $200 million, or even $1 billion in assets and liabilities, we have been part of proceedings and worked to find creative, cost-effective resolutions. Our attorneys have served as counsel or local counsel for some of the biggest Chapter 11 cases in multiple states, and our team includes an attorney inducted into The American College of Bankruptcy, a recognition of professional excellence and contributions to the fields of bankruptcy and insolvency.
