Debtor in Possession Financing

Burr & Forman's commitment to the changing needs of lenders and creditors is evidenced by its substantial Creditors' Rights and Bankruptcy practice.

Burr has over 50 attorneys concentrating in this area of law, making the firm one of the largest bankruptcy practice groups in the region. This allows individual attorneys the ability to focus on narrow specialties. The group was recently ranked by Law360 as the 36th largest Creditors' Rights and Bankruptcy team in the United States. Based on this ranking, Burr's team is the largest in the Southeast. In 2012, 10 of our creditors' rights and bankruptcy attorneys were listed as a leading practitioner in Bankruptcy/Restructuring by the highly regarded Chambers USA. 

We work with a distressed company’s management and financial advisors to craft the best possible business solution.  We leverage our firm’s strength in banking to provide financial institutions with counsel in connection with DIP financings and exit financings.

TESTIMONIALS

  • “I have found them very responsive to our requests and requirements, and very knowledgeable of the relevant areas. They are conscious of cost containment and getting the job done. They don’t just churn paper and create billable hours. Everything they do is directed toward achieving our aims. They want us as the client to understand where things are and what our options are, and make sure we understand the consequences of all the options that are available to us. They let us pick door number one or door number two in the knowledge of what we’re leaving behind. They are able to resolve issues using common sense and reasonableness. We speak very highly of them.”
