Doerner, Saunders, Daniel & Anderson, LLP

Doerner lawyers have decades of experience representing all key parties involved in bankruptcy or reorganization: debtors, secured and unsecured creditors, committees, trustees and investors. We are experienced in all aspects of Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings and in such highly specialized areas as Chapter 9 municipal bankruptcies, single-asset real estate cases and small business reorganizations. In all matters our key strength is facilitating restructurings and reorganizations that preserve assets and business relationships for all stakeholders.

Our firm has handled small bankruptcies and multi-billion dollar proceedings involving oil and gas businesses, manufacturers, retailers and distributors, service and financial entities and all forms of commercial real estate. Our representation of Official Committees offers a 30-plus year record of unsurpassed effectiveness. A deep bench of skills in employment, environmental, oil and gas, transactional and real estate law, among other specialties, enables us to handle the business issues of a liquidation, asset purchase or sale, workout or receivership.

We recognize that establishing confidence and trust with our clients is crucial for handling bankruptcy or restructuring successfully. The officers and directors of companies involved in these proceedings are in a new and stressful environment, and our lawyers are always accessible at any time to give guidance and reassurance. When trustees for bankrupt companies target corporate officers and directors for financial responsibility, we vigorously defend their interests against claimed fiduciary breaches and liability.
