Overview

Barack Ferrazzano’s Bankruptcy & Creditor Rights Group brings extensive experience in all aspects of business reorganizations and bankruptcies. We have represented secured and unsecured creditors, creditors’ committees, state regulatory agencies, financial institutions, lessors of both real and personal property, asset purchasers in sales under Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code, and bondholders’ interests in many cases, including large, complex Chapter 11 cases.

Our team has represented creditors in out-of-court workouts and restructurings and in foreclosure proceedings. We have represented parties in bankruptcies and non-judicial workouts of debtors across a wide variety of industries, including retail, oil and gas, health care, gaming, hospitality, aviation, steel, professional services, financial services, including banking institutions, telecommunications, real estate and technology. We also have represented money center banks based in New York City, Charlotte, Chicago and Los Angeles in the restructuring of problem loans.


Members of our team have appeared in bankruptcy and district courts and courts of appeal throughout the nation. In recent years, we have served as lead counsel on matters in bankruptcy courts in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, California, Massachusetts, Delaware, New York, Texas, Louisiana and Florida. We are particularly experienced in litigating complicated preference, fraudulent transfer and lender liability issues.

In Chapter 11 proceedings, Barack Ferrazzano has represented both owners and creditors of single asset real estate entities and has litigated relief from stay, adequate protection and plan confirmation issues in such cases.
