Bill represents regional, national and international banks and financial institutions in some of their most high-profile and high-value matters. His work spans workouts, Chapter 11 proceedings, commercial litigation, Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) issues and distressed-asset sales.

In addition to lenders and financial institutions, Bill is frequently retained by court-appointed receivers, trustees, assignees for the benefit of creditors and other fiduciaries.
