Bankruptcy Litigation

It has been said that it is difficult to be a good bankruptcy attorney without being a good litigator. However, even the most experienced civil litigators may find themselves at a disadvantage in bankruptcy litigation unless they also are experienced in bankruptcy practice. At Crane, Heyman, Simon, Welch & Clar, our attorneys have cultivated a breadth of knowledge that enables them to thoroughly analyze and manage all types of bankruptcy litigation.

We represent debtors, secured and unsecured creditors, landlords, Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 bankruptcy trustees and creditors' committees in Chapter 11 cases. Among the many bankruptcy litigation matters Crane Heyman has successfully resolved are:

  • Prosecution or defense of fraudulent transfer and preference claims;
  • Allowance and disallowance of claims;
  • Prosecution or defense of Complaints objecting to discharge and dischargeability;
  • Prosecution or defense of Complaints seeking turnover of property of the estate;
  • Enforcement or defense of automatic stay issues;
  • Preliminary injunctions and temporary restraining orders;
  • Contested bankruptcy asset sales and purchases; and
  • Bankruptcy appeals.
