The bankruptcy litigators at Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones stand ready to defend or prosecute the rights of creditors, debtors, committees, and trustees in all litigation forums. Our extensive bankruptcy experience allows us to intelligently and effectively navigate the many types of proceedings and issues that are generated in in bankruptcy cases.Whether in trial, arbitration or mediation, our litigators work hand in hand with our restructuring attorneys to achieve the most favorable, efficient outcome for our clients. After 30 years, it is only natural that our trial attorneys know the ins and outs of bankruptcy law. 

Whether we are representing the interests of creditors or debtors, our bankruptcy expertise allows us to quickly identify what pressure points will produce an optimal result. From first-day hearings, valuation trials, and contested evidentiary hearings to confirmation, postconfirmation, avoidance, and preference litigation, we assist our clients in all contested matters and adversary proceedings, including fraudulent conveyances, preferences, relief-from-stay motions, nondischargeability actions, and trustee motions. 

Further, we have nationally recognized practice in avoidance and claims litigation, primarily in large hourly, contingency or hybrid fee cases. We regularly defend and prosecute fraudulent transfer actions involving leveraged buyouts and other questioned transactions, as well as preference actions on behalf of numerous major corporations.

Our litigators are presidents of leading bankruptcy organizations, frequent panelists at bankruptcy conferences and contributors to local and national bankruptcy publications.
