The Creditors' Remedies Practice Group at Graves Dougherty combines the expertise of bankruptcy practitioners, civil litigators and real estate foreclosure practitioners who have represented creditors, debtors, equity security holders and other parties in interest for more than 25 years, with the savvy of long-time banking, finance and securities lawyers who know the economic ups and downs of multiple industries.
The services offered by our Creditors' Remedies Practice Group include both transactional and litigation-oriented matters, with a focus on protecting our clients' interests and investments in all Chapter proceedings under the Bankruptcy Code. This protection includes working with the firm's Banking and Finance Group to better understand and prepare for bankruptcy filings and the appropriate measures to consider from the creditors' perspective. These measures range from the routine practice of monitoring ongoing bankruptcy cases to handling complex preference, fraudulent transfer and other avoidance power litigation, cash collateral use issues, executory contracts, discharge and dischargeability matters, claims litigation, objections to exemptions, and plan confirmation issues.
We also draw upon the firm's civil litigators in collateral litigation in the state and federal courts, including guaranty litigation, large collection matters, fraudulent transfer and insider preference litigation, defense of injunctions or restraining order actions attempting to prevent foreclosure, and lender liability matters.
Graves Dougherty's experienced foreclosure and real estate lawyers counsel creditors in all aspects of loan transactions secured by real property and personal property. From initial default considerations, to workout negotiations, to asset preservation, and through property disposition by foreclosure.
