BFKN is pleased to welcome Alexander F. Berk to the firm as an associate in our Bankruptcy & Creditor Rights Group. Alex has experience in many key aspects of business reorganizations, workouts, and bankruptcies. Alex represents secured and unsecured lenders, vendors, landlords, other creditors, and debtors in litigation and transactional matters in bankruptcy cases. For these myriad representations, Alex has negotiated and drafted Chapter 11 plans of reorganization and liquidation, restructuring support agreements, plan support agreements, bid procedures, sale orders, debtor-in-possession financing documents, and settlement agreements.
His in-court experience includes arguing contested motions on issues ranging from professional retention to plan confirmation. Alex’s representation of commercial landlords includes asserting claims and recovering possession of leased premises in tenant bankruptcies and assignments for the benefit of creditors. Outside of the courtroom, Alex’s restructuring experience includes representing secured lenders, borrowers, and third-party purchasers in restructuring transactions, including distressed asset sales under UCC Article 9 and debt refinancings. Prior to joining BFKN, Alex was a member of the restructuring group at Mayer Brown LLP.
"We are thrilled that Alex has joined the Bankruptcy & Creditor Rights Group. He is an integral part of our continued expansion, adding a wealth of complex restructuring and Chapter 11 bankruptcy experience.
