Restructuring, Bankruptcy & Creditors' RightsPractices Main
Potter Anderson has one of the few bankruptcy practices in Delaware that excels in all facets of bankruptcy law, including secured creditor, debtor, creditor committee and major creditor representations.
Clients represent the full range of participants in bankruptcy cases, including secured lenders, debtors, asset purchasers and official creditor committees.
Potter Anderson also practices in other creditors' rights areas, including out-of-court restructurings/workouts, state law receiverships and dissolutions, state law foreclosure, assignments for the benefit of creditors and secured transactions.
Our practice is known for its high level of personal service. Rather than building a reputation based on volume, the team chooses to take on clients that benefit from our high-touch/high-value approach.
