Bankruptcy & Creditors' Rights Attorneys, Nashville
The Bankruptcy Code is sometimes referred to as the “best welfare program ever enacted in the United States.” In many ways, this idea is very accurate, because Bankruptcy not only provides debtors with a roadmap to start over, it also provides creditors with the requisite level of certainty of outcome necessary to keep investing in people and businesses by lending them money. We, generally, do not represent debtors. Instead, we represent creditors in Chapter 7, 11 and 13 proceedings, and have extensive experience with both simple Bankruptcy matters—such as filing a proof of claim or obtaining relief from the automatic stay—and complex ones—like working through the terms of large Chapter 11 plans or conducting 363 sales of collateral that is subject to strict safety or national security concerns. We also, from time to time, represent investors or other participants in the purchase of a debtor’s assets through a 363 sale. Similarly, we represent vendors, creditors and other parties in adversary proceedings such as preference actions.
