Effective and efficient legal support from dedicated bankruptcy attorneys

The lines that used to define traditional bankruptcy and creditors’ rights issues are increasingly blurred and complex and are affecting companies, investors and financial institutions more than ever. What is clear is that creditors, debtors and other interested parties need legal representation with the combination of experience, perspective, national scope and resources that Quarles’ dedicated Bankruptcy, Restructuring & Creditor's Rights Practice Group offers. We take a straightforward, pragmatic approach to help you solve problems and take advantage of all available opportunities. By applying lessons learned in the past to existing matters, we significantly reduce the ramp-up time often required by other firms. Our attorneys also are experienced litigators, so rather than handing off the courtroom phase of a case to another team, we can handle virtually every aspect of your case from start to finish, including trials and appeals.

Agility across all bankruptcy legal matters and industries

Across the country, Quarles is the firm of choice for a truly substantial range of clients, each of them approaching bankruptcy and reorganizations with a unique perspective. Our clients include secured and unsecured creditors, debtors, lessors, bondholders, equity interests, committees representing creditors or equity holders, trustees, examiners, post-petition financiers and prospective acquirers of businesses or assets.
