Quarles & Brady LLP

Our Bankruptcy, Restructuring & Creditor’s Rights Group works closely with clients to craft legal solutions consistent with their individual business objectives. We strive to understand their respective industries and unique operations, complementing these insights with our top-level knowledge of the law. We define the relevant options, discuss those alternatives in clear terms, and help our clients with the implementation of the most effective solutions.

Many of our attorneys have developed singular experience in a wide array of businesses and industries. By applying lessons that we have learned in the past to existing matters, we can provide substantial efficiency in our representation. Further, our attorneys have significant experience as litigators — rather than handing off the courtroom phase of a case to another team, we are able to handle virtually every aspect from start to finish, including trials and appeals.

We also provide focused representation to institutional health care lenders in all kinds of distress, bankruptcy, creditors’ rights, and enforcement matters throughout the country. We have developed an institutional knowledge of, and proficiency in, the substantive health care industries in which many of our clients either operate or serve, and we are particularly conversant with the regulatory and legal issues that affect both our lender clients and borrowers in this area. This enables us to help our clients develop and implement sophisticated and creative strategies for dealing with all aspects of troubled loans to health care providers.
