Our attorneys are some of the best-known names in bankruptcy law practice in Maryland, D.C. and Virginia, with high-profile case experience that extends back decades and across the spectrum of debtor and creditor representation.
A Commanding, Balanced Presence in your Bankruptcy Case or Workout Effort
We have earned a reputation for creativity and efficiency as well as legal skill and integrity. Our attorneys are prepared to confront and resolve the most complex situations on behalf of debtors, creditors and trustees, providing:
- Aggressive, highly informed creditors' committee representation
- Resourceful administration of liquidations and receiverships
- Distinguished service as court-appointed receivers and trustees in high-value bankruptcy cases

We welcome inquiries, on a confidential basis, from any business leader or stakeholder with cash flow and/or debt or collection issues. Turn to us to access our wide-ranging experience helping business owners, developers and high net worth individuals resolve their problems in troubled times.
