About

Provided by Stearns Weaver Miller Weissler Alhadeff & Sitterson, P.A.

Stearns Weaver Miller’s Bankruptcy/Restructuring Department represents parties in the extension, restructuring and working out of secured and unsecured credit facilities and routinely handles financings secured by a variety of assets, including commercial real estate. We represent debtors, creditors, trustees, receivers, landlords, asset purchasers, and other parties in bankruptcy cases, court receiverships, assignment for the benefit of creditors proceedings, and out-of-court work-outs. We handle the defense and prosecution of director and officer liability cases and litigate complex insolvency-related cases in federal and state courts.

Our Bankruptcy/Restructuring Department represents large national and regional companies in Chapter 11 reorganization proceedings, including airlines, manufacturing and retail concerns, financial institutions, and one of the nation's largest hotel management concerns. We also handled two of the largest Chapter 11 reorganizations ever administered in the Southern District of Florida.

We also have an active Chapter 15 practice, assisting foreign representatives and parties involved in these matters.

When representing creditors, particularly secured creditors in foreclosure proceedings, our team does not allow the filing of bankruptcy proceedings to intimidate or delay our clients in pursuing their rights and obtaining expeditious results. Our creditor practice includes the representation of US and foreign banks and other institutional creditors.
