Bankruptcy & Debt

At Stoel Rives, we represent all sides and angles of an insolvency or distressed equation. We are trusted counsel to our corporate clients on their out-of-court financial or operational restructurings and court proceedings in Chapter 11. We also represent sponsors and strategic and financial investors in out-of-court financial restructurings and in-court bankruptcy cases; secured and unsecured creditors in large and small Chapter 11, 7 and 13 cases; and creditors’ committees and equity interests in Chapter 11 cases.

We have unparalleled experience in the sectors currently most impacted by bankruptcy and restructuring issues, including energy, oil and gas, mining, retail, financial services, agribusiness, commercial real estate, and health care. Our team of restructuring professionals advise on frequently encountered issues and strategies relating to any distressed company, including real estate and leasing matters, disputes over use of cash collateral, debtor-in-possession financing, enterprise and asset valuations, contested confirmation hearings, and discrete issues relating to the Bankruptcy Code and Article 9.

We’ve spent years representing all sides of corporate bankruptcy and reorganization—creditor, debtor, acquirer, landlord and sponsor. Drawing upon our practical experience, and our insight regarding the motivations and tactics of all parties involved in a restructuring, we can more effectively and efficiently plan and implement your strategy. We’ll match our work to your goals and needs—whether in connection with a business liquidation or reorganization or a sale of substantially all of a company’s assets. Perhaps most importantly, we understand the need to minimize time spent in a bankruptcy proceeding, and our professionals have a proven track record of responding to client needs.
