Current economic realities have highlighted the importance of the debtor-creditor relationships common to all commercial activity, particularly scenarios where a debtor/counterparty lacks assets sufficient to pay all of its creditors in full. The complex web of legal and enforcement regimes vary considerably from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, notwithstanding the predominance of efforts at uniformity through the uniform commercial code, and state fraudulent transfer and the Bankruptcy Code.

K&L Gates’ Restructuring and Bankruptcy practice offers clients creative solutions by combining the firm’s bankruptcy experience with its proficiency in related areas like mergers and acquisitions, asset-based lending, secured transactions, distressed real estate, and intellectual property. The group’s core competencies include corporate reorganization, in- and out-of-court restructurings and insolvencies, debtor-creditor relationships, and bankruptcy, including litigating issues related to all of the above in bankruptcy court and in state court. The group’s collective experience on both the debtor and creditor side allows us to understand all sides of a problem or opportunity and to structure creative, informed, and practical solutions to protect and advance our clients’ interests. When appropriate, we can also call on the firm’s substantial resources in other areas, like health care, the Internet, environmental law, securities, tax, and ERISA, among others.
