Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law

Gibbons is an exceptional law firm. Its partners are exceptionally smart, knowledgeable about the law, tenacious in advocating for its clients, and personable. I've worked with Gibbons for ten years on various matters, and it is my go-to firm when I need East Coast representation in complex bankruptcy and insolvency matters. I first met Gibbons ten years ago when it represented the chapter 11 trustee of an exceptionally complex mega-bankruptcy, consisting of 22,000 creditors and $59.7 billion in asserted claims held by sophisticated parties. Gibbons represented its client exceptionally well. Gibbons negotiated with dozens of stakeholders to get a plan confirmed, and distributed millions of dollars to thousands of creditors across 22 classes of claims. It approached the case in a very balanced way, with a deep understanding of the law and with a practical "here's how it will work" manner that non-attorneys could understand. I highly recommend Gibbons.

Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law

I have retained Gibbons' bankruptcy and creditor debtor rights group as well as other groups within Gibbons and, in each case, they were extremely professional, knowledgeable, expert in their respective area and very responsive. I found them to be more than just legal counsel; they were true business partners and added enormous value to my company's objectives.
