The firm represents clients in the most significant insolvency cases and restructurings throughout the United States and related complex litigation claims arising from such bankruptcy cases, including Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc.
The firm’s Restructuring and Insolvency professionals work hand-in-hand with the firm’s deep roster of accomplished and seasoned litigators to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations with proven results in bankruptcy litigation matters. As one of the oldest multidisciplinary law firms in New York City, the firm’s clients benefit from the Bankruptcy Litigation group’s long-standing knowledge of New York judges, mediators, experts, consultants, and opposing counsel.
Bankruptcy cases frequently give rise to litigation claims, sometimes spanning several jurisdictions. Our deep knowledge of the Bankruptcy Code, coupled with our litigation skills, give us an edge in litigating claims in bankruptcy courts, state and federal district court, as well as mediation and arbitration forums (under the auspices of ICC, ICSID, AAA, LCIA, and ad hoc commercial arbitrations).
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. The high caliber of our bankruptcy litigation practice is evident from the results achieved in complex bankruptcy cases throughout the world.
