Schneweis-Coe & Bakken, LLP provides sophisticated representation to trustees in all matters related to their administration of bankruptcy cases.
We represent creditors including general unsecured creditors as well as secured creditors including lien holders, judgment creditors, banks, and other lenders.
Bankruptcy litigation is complex and involves creditors, debtors, trustees, and other parties with competing interests in the outcome. As experienced bankruptcy litigation attorneys, we are highly skilled and efficient problem solvers. We identify the problems and aggressively pursue our clients' interests.
We handle a broad range of issues including:
- Liquidation of assets (Section 363 sales transactions)
- Objections to exemptions
- Preference recovery actions
- Fraudulent conveyance actions (actual and constructive)
- Claims objections
- Discharge and dischargeability challenges
- Other contested matters
- Rule 2004 examinations
- Employment of professionals
We also represent buyers in purchasing assets from bankruptcy estates. Such purchases can be desirable for buyers because the sale is authorized by court order, which conveys legal title of the property or asset to the buyer. We assist the buyer in negotiating a purchase price, preparing sale documents, and participating in the courtroom bidding process.
