Representation, Defense and Debt Collection
With deep knowledge and breadth of experience across multiple industries, the attorneys in our Bankruptcy and Creditor’s Rights Group understand the dynamics of distressed businesses. Financial and operational aspects of your commercial organization as a bankruptcy creditor may involve debt finance, securities, tax law, and more. What options should you consider? What is cost-effective? How should an out-of-court negotiation be attempted? The bankruptcy law team at McKenna Storer will walk you through the range of options and counsel you on the recommended strategy.
Attorneys with experience in this practice area know that the challenge facing creditors’ counsel is not merely competing with the debtor and its shareholders, but also competing against other creditor constituencies with differing agendas. Assisting large and small businesses with their debt collection efforts is a significant part of our service within this practice area.
Extensive knowledge of creditor-debtor rights and the finer nuances of business operations, litigation, negotiation skills and corporate law distinguish McKenna’s bankruptcy team. We have successfully advocated for clients collecting debt in a wide range of industries including:
Banking and finance Construction
Commercial and residential real estate
Public Educational Institutions
The attorneys in our Bankruptcy and Creditor’s Rights Group have broad experience in representing clients involved in commercial bankruptcies, from large publicly traded companies to small commercial cases.

Prosecution of involuntary bankruptcies by our team includes bringing down a $50 million Ponzi scheme.

Collection and bankruptcy litigation can be time-consuming and costly as automatic stays and other debtor rights benefit defaulting borrowers, tenants, suppliers and customers. Through decades of litigation experience, we know that a court battle should be the last resort only when all other methods of negotiation fail. In the event that litigation becomes inevitable, a hands-on and personalized approach will set the grounds for a timely and cost-effective representation of your claims.
