Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law

Corporate Governance Law

I have worked with Moore & Van Allen for years. They deliver "big firm" quality, responsiveness and turnaround with a mid-sized commercial sensibility. In other words, they can cover all the topics and issues we need them to (and then some I imagine), but they will get up to speed on anything they need to on their dime. They will staff appropriately with the right mix of experience and more junior attorneys to work on the more junior attorney-appropriate work. They do not "churn;" and, when they head in the wrong direction, they acknowledge it and do not bill for it. All seems entirely rational, but not all firms are like that.

Mergers & Acquisitions Law

My team worked with Moore & Van Allen to facilitate the change from a C-Corp to an LLC starting in 2015. Shortly, after the conversion we moved to merge another corporate subsidiary into Power Contracting. Moore & Van Allen helped us formulate a corporate strategy for the conversion and the merger, resulting in an optimal structure for our parent company as well as a streamlined operational structure designed to facilitate growth. Moore & Van Allen handled all legal aspects of the change including filings, contractual changes, and license changes and conversions. They partnered with my team for a seamless change that most importantly did not negatively affect any of our client relationships.

Litigation - Banking & Finance

I used to practice creditor's rights representing financial institutions, and I can say for a fact that their bankruptcy team at Moore & Van Allen is the best. In one case, they helped recover almost $1MM for the debtor's estate that could have easily disappeared because of fraud.

The team at Moore & Van Allen has an outstanding understanding of our business. They do an excellent job of protecting our firm while still being practical from a risk management perspective. They are highly responsive to our needs and in my 20 plus years of working with the team at MVA they have never let me down by not making something happen that we told them was very important to us. They do a great job of hiring 'good' people that are easy to relate to and the kind you would want as your neighbor.
