Commercial Bankruptcy

Jeff LeForce Law

Regardless of whether you are a creditor whose return on investment is in jeopardy or own a business that is struggling financially, business bankruptcy is never easy. This is largely due to the fact that once a business is in Chapter 11, the reorganization process has many facets and very specific rules and procedures that must be followed. What often determines success for a party affected by Chapter 11 is having skilled legal counsel who understands those options and can help devise and implement an effective strategy that navigates the many issues that always arise.

Jeff LeForce puts 20 years of experience to work for clients involved in business bankruptcy proceedings. He has been in leadership roles in some of the most complex corporate bankruptcy cases in U.S. history, and his experience includes representing clients in varied positions and with different goals. Jeff has represented:

  • Individual Secured and Unsecured Creditors
  • Debtors-in-Possession
  • Trustees
  • Asset Purchasers
  • Creditors’ Committees
  • Corporate Directors and Officers

Industry-specific Bankruptcy Experience

Corporate bankruptcy rules and procedures are in many ways consistent, but it takes experienced counsel to understand the appropriate and effective way to develop and implement a strategy to reach the client’s goals. Having Chapter 11 legal representation with experience in your particular industry can also be a significant advantage. Jeff LeForce has extensive experience – and a record of successful results – across a wide spectrum of industries, including banking and financial services, telecommunications, high-tech, energy, oil and gas, mining, construction, transportation, manufacturing, and more.

  • Lenders in negotiating debtor-in-possession financing and cash collateral use
  • Purchasers and sellers of telecom, high tech, transportation, manufacturing and other assets
  • Creditors with environmental claims to implement strategies to maximize recoveries or benefits
  • A non-bank lender and over 100 of its directors and officers against usury and lender liability claims
  • Aircraft lessors and the recovery of aircraft from bankruptcies
  • Lenders in bank groups before, during, and after bankruptcy cases, including credit binding and sale processes
  • Creditors against preference claims from debtors or trustees
