Stroock’s Financial Restructuring attorneys represent individual and groups of creditors, investors, purchasers and debtors in bankruptcy proceedings and out-of-court restructurings.  We have extensive experience representing strategic and control investors, and regularly represent hedge fund and private equity investors in that capacity.

Stroock handles complex insolvency disputes, including the resolution of distressed loans, particularly in connection with foreclosures upon residential and commercial real properties; the disposition and ownership of secured real property collateral; and the enforcement and interpretation of security agreements.  We have brought claims for losses suffered by institutions both as lenders and equity investors. Stroock also represents both foreign and domestic trustees, receivers, liquidators and governmental agencies in seeking to maximize creditor recoveries through litigation.  Debtor clients benefit from the combination of our litigation expertise and intimate knowledge of bankruptcy tools, including standstill agreements, debt extensions and traditional and non-traditional filings.

Our experience is also international in scope.  Stroock attorneys are active in the management of cross-border insolvency cases, and our firm is a leading practitioner in the area of Section 304 (now Chapter 15) proceedings, ancillary to insolvency proceedings in foreign jurisdictions, having represented numerous entities in the U.S.
