Crowell & Moring's bankruptcy and creditors' rights lawyers advise clients at every step of financial services transactions. We provide counsel on the resolution of disputes through litigation and the pursuit of creditors rights, as well as represent creditors, committees, debtors, trustees, and other parties in bankruptcies, litigation, receiverships, reorganizations, workouts, and restructurings.

With our broad perspective and deep knowledge of the financial services industry, we excel at developing legal solutions that deploy the appropriate resources at the right time and in the most cost-effective manner. We understand the time-sensitive nature of our clients' matters and respond quickly to emerging needs without losing sight of longer-term opportunities and objectives. We are our clients' business partners in the truest sense.

We represent clients from throughout the financial services industry — including federal- and state-chartered banks, investment banks, opportunity funds and hedge funds, commercial finance companies, insurance companies, servicers, and real estate companies — in matters involving virtually every sector of the economy.

When disputes arise, we advise creditors on and litigate matters involving non-performing loans, forbearance and workout agreements, foreclosures and UCC sales, receiverships, and other exit strategies. We also regularly represent and advise clients in connection with commercial bankruptcy proceedings across the country, including matters involving plans of reorganization, use of cash collateral, debtor-in-possession loans, avoidance actions, and asset sales. In addition, our lawyers have experience representing clients in novel and cutting-edge issues, particularly in mass tort bankruptcy matters and matters involving distressed debt and equity.

The bankruptcy team has a national practice. Our lawyers have increasingly played leading roles in some of the nation's most prominent bankruptcies. Our bankruptcy lawyers are rated among the best by our peers. Chambers USA has recognized Mark Plevin as "thorough and aggressive in a positive way," with a "deep understanding of complex issues" and an ability to "approach matters in a creative and independent way," which are an enormous help for clients.
