Financing, Creditors Rights & Bankruptcy

We have extensive experience in negotiating and drafting all types of loan documentation and a broad range of experience in dealing with Articles 2 and 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), including attachment and perfection of UCC-1 financing statements, and financing and collection issues. We have represented both financial institutions and borrowers in negotiating complex financial matters.

We assist secured and unsecured creditors in maximizing their recovery in connection with problem loans and receivables.

Our lawyers are skilled at counseling clients in matters ranging from informal workouts to forbearance agreements, to sophisticated corporate reorganizations.

If negotiation fails, our litigators are experienced in navigating the rules and procedures of the federal bankruptcy and Illinois state courts.
