Greenberg Glusker bankruptcy attorneys shape business solutions specific to each client’s concerns.

Our counsel ranges from early stage evaluations, transactional advice and pre-petition planning to out-of-court reorganizations, chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganizations and asset sales. Our broad client base and years of experience litigating in the bankruptcy courts of Southern California make us uniquely suited to efficiently advise on bankruptcy-related issues. We represent the many parties involved in reorganization and liquidation bankruptcies, such as:

  • Debtors and Creditors
  • Equity Holders
  • Individuals and Guarantors
  • Creditors' Committees
  • Landlords
  • Secured Creditors
  • Purchasers and Sellers of Distressed Assets
  • Indenture Trustees
  • Chapter 11 and Chapter 7 Trustees

On the Debtor side, our practice emphasis is in representing Southern California middle-market companies and transitioning “failed’’ businesses into operating enterprises. We work to preserve value for clients and help them achieve their operational goals.

We assist company principals whose businesses are in distress in protecting their individual interests, including protecting their equity interests in their businesses, responding to and defending against director and officer claims, and providing advice if claims are made or threatened against them as guarantors.

For purchasers of distressed assets, Greenberg Glusker attorneys have extensive experience in assisting buyers purchasing distressed commercial real property assets, entertainment company assets, and other operating businesses, both in Southern California and in other bankruptcy courts around the country, including the bankruptcy court in Delaware.

We regularly assist our real estate clients in navigating the unique rules which impact the landlord-tenant relationship in bankruptcy cases.

We assist our creditor clients in drafting loan agreements, protecting their rights in collateral, including perfection of security interests and addressing complicated intercreditor issues such as subordination and marshaling of assets. We have particular expertise in entertainment and intellectual property matters. We also represent creditors seeking to recover their assets whether by way of writ of attachment proceedings, relief from stay, contested plans or other bankruptcy litigation.

We also represent both chapter 11 and chapter 7 trustees in complex cases which require litigation in the bankruptcy court in order to preserve the assets of the bankruptcy estate and to create a recovery for creditors.

Offering a Full-Service Alternative in Bankruptcy and Restructuring

As a full-service, midsize firm, Greenberg Glusker provides an accessible alternative to bankruptcy groups within larger national law firms or “boutique” bankruptcy firms. Related issues in employment, real estate, finance, corporate law, litigation and tax almost always arise in the restructuring context. Greenberg Glusker bankruptcy attorneys regularly collaborate with other practitioners in the firm to address these areas and provide clients with prompt, complete and efficient representation that can fully address their concerns and achieve their business goals.

Customizing Value-Driven Bankruptcy Solutions

When customizing the right solution, Greenberg Glusker explores practical and novel approaches. In some cases, a chapter 11 bankruptcy is not always the best option. We may advise working with other professionals, such as accountants and turnaround specialists, to evaluate and implement alternatives short of bankruptcy, including assignments for the benefit of creditors, renegotiation of loans and covenants, and other methods to improve operations.
