Burr & Forman’s commitment to the changing needs of lenders and creditors is evidenced by its substantial Creditors’ Rights and Bankruptcy practice. We have one of the largest bankruptcy practice groups in the Southeast with over 40 attorneys concentrating in this area of law.
For decades, Burr & Forman attorneys concentrating in creditors’ rights have been actively involved in major bankruptcy proceedings in the Southeast and beyond. Our work began with an emphasis on representing major secured lenders in Chapter 11 bankruptcies but our practice has evolved far beyond its initial role.
Our experience is extensive in the mining, food and beverage, manufacturing, real estate, health care, agriculture, retail, and construction industries. On the creditor side we represent financial services institutions, asset-based lenders, and local, regional, and national banks. We serve as counsel to REITs, equipment sellers and lessors.
Along with our expanding representation in creditors’ rights cases, we also counsel and represent business entities experiencing financial distress. Our attorneys have substantial experience in the representation of business debtors including manufacturers, educational institutions, professional services organizations, retailers, real estate developers, and health care providers in workouts and insolvency proceedings.
