Today’s complex financial crises require more than experience with bankruptcy law. Tax, real estate, corporate, employment and benefits, banking, construction, insurance, environmental, products liability, intellectual property and other areas of the law can play a critical role in realizing the greatest financial return in a given case. With 1100+ attorneys throughout 23 U.S. cities, we have the depth and strength to handle any matter, regardless of its complexity or location.
