We also represent creditors of bankrupt debtors, whether they seek to assert claims against the estate, defend avoidance actions, protect contract and lease rights or enforce obligations, or negotiate lease or contract interests. 


We provide innovative and strategic advice to assist clients in meeting their business and personal goals.  The firm’s diverse practice includes representing clients in bankruptcy litigation, transactions including the purchase and sale of distressed assets, restructuring and liquidations under chapters 7, Chapter 11 and Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code, and appeals of bankruptcy court rulings.  The firm also advises clients considering bankruptcy on the potential impact of a filing. 


The firm’s founder, Adrienne Woods, has more than 16 years of experience representing both debtors and creditors in bankruptcies and workouts in industries as diverse as homeless shelters, oil and gas, airlines, fitness centers, entertainment, consumer goods and retail, alternative energy, health supplements, casinos, real estate and health care.
