Bankruptcy, Workout and Corporate Reorganization

Handling complex bankruptcy matters is a core area of our legal practice. We tirelessly work on behalf of our clients in Chapter 11 reorganizations and corporate workouts, as well as Chapter 7 liquidation matters. We distinguish ourselves by finding creative and practical solutions to complex issues, and have the resources and the flexibility to respond quickly, thoroughly and knowledgeably.

We regularly represent debtors, lenders, creditors' committees and others in restructurings and Chapter 11 cases. Kingsmill Riess, L.L.C. has represented clients in high-profile bankruptcy adversary proceedings, contested matters and insolvency-related litigation. Our attorneys' experience includes some of the largest bankruptcies in Louisiana and multiple casino and gaming insolvencies. Our experienced lawyers advise, plan, strategize and litigate on behalf of creditors' committees, commercial lenders, and debtors. Our work has resulted in the recovery and return of millions of dollars to creditors.

Bankruptcy practice requires a unique set of skills. It requires a working knowledge of how businesses operate and an understanding of accounting. It requires litigation skills in conducting examinations of witnesses, reviewing documents, legal research and writing briefs, and oral advocacy, as well as mastery of the Rules of Civil Procedure, the Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, and the Rules of Evidence. Finally, it requires a firm grasp of the Bankruptcy Code and knowledge of the workings of the Bankruptcy Court. Our bankruptcy attorneys have the skills and experience to provide you dedicated, effective representation.

Our representation of both debtors and creditors allows us to see and understand the strengths and weaknesses of the other side to the transaction. Whether representing creditors or debtors, we zealously represent our clients to achieve their goals.
