Bankruptcy and Creditors' Rights

McAnany, Van Cleave & Phillips has a substantial and broad-based creditors' rights practice.  MVP attorneys assist banks and other creditors in collecting delinquent loans and recovering and disposing of collateral.  We file lawsuits to obtain monetary judgments against borrowers, guarantors and other debtors and pursue post-judgment relief such as garnishments and executions on property in order to satisfy those judgments.  We also handle judicial and non-judicial foreclosures, mechanics' liens, and replevin actions for the benefit of our creditor clients.  MVP attorneys represent lessors under equipment and real estate leases to protect their interests when lessees default.  Our attorneys assist lenders with work-out matters when the circumstances permit.

MVP represents secured and unsecured creditors in the federal bankruptcy courts and develops strategies to maximize returns for clients in routine, as well as complex bankruptcy cases.  Our attorneys protect clients' rights through actions including:

  • Obtaining relief from the automatic stay and adequate protection orders
  • Objecting to and negotiating as to confirmation of bankruptcy plans
  • Structuring cash collateral orders
  • Defending preference actions and adversary proceedings
  • Representing unsecured creditors' committees
  • Filing proofs of claim
  • Handling lease assumption matters  

MVP attorneys draw on their extensive experience with these and related areas in order to provide complete representation to clients in all aspects of these cases.
