Bankruptcy Litigation


Loeb & Loeb’s Bankruptcy Litigation team is known for achieving outstanding results in some of the thorniest and most contentious disputes in connection with bankruptcies, insolvencies and the enforcement of creditors’ rights.

Our litigators represent creditor clients at trial and in mediations and other alternative dispute resolution forums, and we appeal and defend bankruptcy-related decisions before state and federal courts across the country.

Skilled and experienced advocates, both in and out of the courtroom, we are particularly adept at securing prejudgment relief for our creditor clients, obtaining the appointment of receivers in both equity and real estate receiverships, and guiding lenders through the foreclosure process. We are also skilled in the enforcement and defense of guarantees and indemnities, both personal and corporate.

Loeb litigators have a long and successful track record in avoidance actions, including fraudulent transfers and preferences, innovative defenses and strategies to reduce or avoid liability for our clients, securing favorable trial judgments and negotiated settlements, and successfully appealing adverse decisions. We’ve defended high-stakes avoidance actions in some of the most significant bankruptcies in recent decades, including Delphi, Nortel, Lehman Brothers, Quebecor, Linens ’N Things, Fortunoff, Hartmarx, Bill Blass, KB Toys, and many others. We have also successfully defended defrauded investors against claims brought by trustees in high-profile Ponzi scheme-related bankruptcies, including in the Madoff, Bayou and Ruderman cases, among others.

We also represent liquidating trusts in actions to enforce the claims of reorganized or liquidating estates, and represent examiners and bankruptcy trustees in the investigation and enforcement of debtors’ rights.
