No one’s initial plans include a bankruptcy. But sometimes the best laid plans don’t work out, leaving no other options. When a bankruptcy does occur it is critical to resolve it as expeditiously as possible, for creditors and debtors alike. At Middleton Reutlinger, our bankruptcy and creditor’s rights group has the experience, knowledge, and proven record of success our clients need, for both individuals and entities, consumer or business-related.

The past decade has seen profound changes with the enactment of the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005. Middleton Reutlinger’s attorneys have the legal skills to guide you through a variety of issues found in Title 11. Bankruptcy practice has never been more demanding, and your future could hinge on making the best choices available to you under stressful conditions.  

Middleton Reutlinger’s attorneys can counsel you or your company through either reorganization or liquidation. We also can also help you navigate questions related to secured creditors’ rights, trade creditors, and respective priorities under the Code. While our attorneys are always ready to litigate, they are also savvy negotiators, with a penchant for resolving problems outside of court and outside the box whenever possible.

Middleton Reutlinger’s practice encompasses the entire spectrum of issues related to insolvency and bankruptcy, including:

  • Bankruptcy sales
  • Business reorganizations
  • Foreclosures
  • Trade creditors’ rights
  • Secured and unsecured creditors’ priorities
  • Creditor committees
  • Trustees duties and powers under the Code
  • Purchases of insolvent companies
  • Discharge issues under all Chapters of the Code
