Creditors Rights & Collections

The O’Connell and Aronowitz Creditors’ Rights and Collections attorneys represent secured and unsecured creditors and other parties affected by financial insolvency issues. The broad experience of our Creditors’ Rights and Collections attorneys, coupled with the diverse legal specialties of colleagues throughout our firm, enable us to provide our clients creative and practical solutions when creditors’ rights and collections issues impact their business.

We represent banks, businesses, credit unions, individuals, lessors and lessees of commercial properties, partnerships and other parties involved in bankruptcy and insolvency matters.

We have successfully defended against attempts by creditors’ committees, debtors and trustees to avoid transfers and transactions alleged to be fraudulent or preferential. We also defend attempts to disallow claims, revive obligations or compel the disposition of property.

We can assist you by providing counsel in the preparation, prosecution and defense of proofs of claim and related matters. We also assist our clients with the analysis and evaluation of proposed plans of reorganization, the formation of creditors’ trusts, and other related issues. We represent clients in opposition or support of such plans or formations. We have extensive experience assisting clients with property and business acquisitions and dispositions through the Bankruptcy Courts.

Our attorneys also have extensive experience with financial workouts, recapitalization and forbearance agreements, litigation and structured settlements. We represent borrowers, landlords, lenders, tenants and other parties-in-interest in assignments for the benefit of creditors, foreclosure actions, and private and public sales under the Uniform Commercial Code. We also provide full service collection representation including litigation, post-judgment enforcement, wage garnishments, property executions, lien enforcement and the negotiation of voluntary payment assignments.
