Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights

Primary Practice Contact: P. Matthew Cox

Salt Lake City Bankruptcy Lawyers and Creditors’ Rights Attorneys

Our bankruptcy and creditors’ rights lawyers serve the legal needs of Utah businesses and individuals.  We provide creditor and debtor representation in bankruptcy, receiverships, foreclosures, workouts, loan documentation and collections.

Our Bankruptcy Representation

In bankruptcy, we have represented nearly every category of “player” – including commercial debtors, trustees, creditor’s committees, secured creditors, avoidance-claim defendants, and competing plan proponents.  We routinely represent clients in nondischargeability litigation, automatic stay issues, objections to plans of reorganization, claim objections, asset sales, and the defense of preference, fraudulent transfer, and other bankruptcy avoidance claims.

Our Creditors’ Rights Practice

We represent local, regional, and national companies in asserting creditors rights, typically as the result of payment defaults.  In these matters, clients rely on our experience and reputation of taking prompt action to further their interests, secure judgments, and recover assets (before those assets depreciate or become damaged or destroyed).

Our creditors’ rights representation includes pre-judgment remedies, receiverships for real property, conservatorships, real property disputes (including both sides of commercial landlord-tenant issues), contract defaults, asset seizure, and enforcement of account obligations and judgments. We also work with out-of-state lawyers and others to enforce judgements and seize assets on behalf of our creditors.

Proven Success

Our firm has earned the trust of the nation’s largest captive and independent auto finance company and bank. Through thousands of bankruptcy cases, we have helped this client recover millions in payments and collateral.

Delivering Value

In bankruptcies, collections, and creditors’ rights matters, we are committed to delivering value and seeking the best possible outcome for our clients. We appreciate and are honored that clients rely on us to apply our significant experience and skillset in this area, to serve their bankruptcy and collections needs. We realize our clients depend on us to obtain the highest return on their assets (after legal fees are taken into consideration).  It is incumbent on us to always apply a streamlined approach and operational efficiencies, whenever possible, to make this happen.

Non-Traditional Outcomes

We work closely with our colleagues, SCM lawyers in other practice areas, when advising clients on insolvency-related business situations.  This could include secured and unsecured financing, commercial and real estate transactions, the purchase and sale of financially troubled companies, the value of licensed technology, and other related corporate matters.  We are mindful that in some situations, non-traditional options may exist for creditors to receive a higher return than they otherwise would, through a standard bankruptcy or creditors’ rights collection disposition.  In such cases, we advise and guide clients through workout, sales, and other options.
