Our objective is to protect our clients’ interests and rights in all material respects relative to any bankruptcy issues or involvement. We represent clients in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 proceedings, and our attorneys have a special expertise protecting client interests in Chapter 11 proceedings.
All types of secured and unsecured business creditors, including trade creditors, equipment lessors, real estate lessors, inventory and/or equipment financers, and banks and other financial institutions, rely on KMK’s Business & Financial Services group to represent and protect their interests and any collateral or leased assets in the hands of debtors, bankruptcy trustees, or other adverse third parties. Our attorneys pursue priority and administrative claims, they routinely seek relief from the automatic stay, protect clients in 363 sales, and evaluate plans of reorganization. They also provide guidance to companies seeking to buy assets from bankruptcy estates.
For secured and unsecured creditor and leasing clients, our experience and expertise in reorganization and liquidation proceedings enable us to formulate practices, procedures, and alternatives to manage and control a client’s credit and loss exposure, and at the same time allow the client to continue to do business with the debtor. This may foster a successful financial reorganization of the debtor with an ongoing opportunity for our client to profit. Finally, if the debtor’s future leads to financial collapse, we help reduce the loss exposure.
KMK takes pride in our national reputation in all types of bankruptcy actions. In addition to attorneys who are Board Certified in Business Bankruptcy Law and Creditors’ Rights Law by the American Board of Certification, KMK also has several attorneys currently designated as Wisconsin “Super Lawyers” by Super Lawyer Magazine and “Best Lawyers in America” in Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law.
If you need bankruptcy representation, help with exemptions and lien avoidance summary, involuntary petitions, or any other related matter, let KMK minimize your loss potential. Call our team of Business & Financial Services attorneys at (414) 962-5110.
