Practice Areas

Commercial Litigation

Our services include receiverships, other provisional remedies, real estate foreclosure, partition actions, and complex business disputes.

Bankruptcy

We handle all aspects of bankruptcy work and litigation involving all chapters of the Bankruptcy Code. We have substantial experience on the creditor side on motions for relief from stay, cash collateral, and plan confirmation matters. We have handled numerous successful plaintiff nondischargeability cases, and have defended many preferences and fraudulent transfer cases. We have been involved in bankruptcy asset sales, claim sales, and just about every transaction that can arise in or around a bankruptcy case. We have niche experience in Bankruptcy Code Section 524(g) cases. On occasion, in the right case, we will represent as bankruptcy counsel corporate debtors, provided there is no bank debt involved.

Workouts

We have been involved in hundreds of workout negotiations and agreements and have expertise in sophisticated forbearance and restructure agreements, security agreements, releases, deed-in-lieu agreements, and similar arrangements.

Business Reorganization

Our mission is to help our clients thoroughly understand their Point A—the challenges, realities and implications of the matter that they currently face; to guide them in understanding the potential risks and costs associated with that matter—then work with them to craft a course of action that successfully identifies and navigates them to Point B. If that action includes
litigation, our many years of successful trial and litigation in State and Federal Courts experience means that we are fully prepared to litigate with excellence.

Loan Sales

A regular part of our practice is devoted to helping clients sell troubled loans and to assisting loan purchasers in acquiring such assets. We have been involved in several hundred million dollars in loan sales on both the seller and the buyer side, and are comfortable working on a variety of asset classes.

Real Property Sales

Our firm has been involved in representing clients in the sale and purchase of commercial and residential real properties throughout the State of California. In particular, we have handled sales of lender real estate-owned assets, with expertise on “as is, where is” sales.
