At Fox, we recognize and tailor our strategy to align with the understanding that a trustee is often required to do much more than collect assets and distribute funds. A trustee can and frequently is expected to be a “jack-of-all-trades,” operating the debtor’s business as chief executive officer until it can be sold as a going concern or properly wound down.
In the realm of litigation, we are equipped to handle adversary proceedings in bankruptcy courts, jury trials in district courts, appeals to district courts or Bankruptcy Appellate Panels and appeals to circuit courts and courts of appeals. With 750 attorneys nationwide, our bankruptcy group has access to experienced corporate, labor, litigation and tax attorneys, which enables us to provide clients with comprehensive representation in all matters, particularly complex litigation.
Our attorneys provide comprehensive legal representation to trustees, including:
- fiduciary conflicts of interest
- formation of trusts
- going out of business sales
- sale of assets
- disposing and abandonment of property
- asset recoveries
- avoidance litigation
- lender liability claims
- WARN liability
- prosecuting and defending bankruptcy causes of action
We also actively serve as a liaison for the trustee to the creditors, lenders, the courts and the Office of the United States Trustee.
