Bankruptcy cases frequently give rise to litigation claims, sometimes spanning several jurisdictions.

Many of our litigators are admitted in multiple courts and are seasoned advocates, with experience in federal as well as state courts in the U.S. at both the trial and appellate levels. Curtis litigators are known for their acumen at trial, but bring the same commitment and intensity to their work at every stage of a lawsuit, through discovery and motion practice.
As Curtis has particular experience in offering clients highly skilled legal counsel in high-stakes matters, the Bankruptcy Litigation group applies an interdisciplinary approach, drawing upon the experience of other practice groups throughout the firm, enabling the team to develop comprehensive strategies that address the legal and factual issues in a case and achieve favorable results on behalf of the client.
