Bankruptcy

Businesses and individuals experiencing financial problems need steady counsel. Waterfall Economidis attorneys provide timely and responsive guidance through an array of bankruptcy cases, litigation, restructurings and workouts. With an emphasis on prompt, cost-effective solutions, we direct clients through the maze of issues and regulations facing debtors, creditors, trustees, and buyers.

Viewing bankruptcy as a last resort, we help debtor clients pursue options for best managing their financial issues. When bankruptcy is unavoidable, our lawyers guide clients through the appropriate proceedings to obtain optimal results. We knowledgably advise debtors on protecting their assets and developing a strategy to obtain a discharge.

Our attorneys help debtor clients decide under which chapter of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code it’s best for them to file, and we represent creditors in cases involving Chapters 7, 9, 11, 12, and 13 of the code. We also defend clients in fraudulent transfer suits brought by trustees. Bringing top litigation, transactional, and contract expertise to the practice, our lawyers work hard to guide clients through the bankruptcy process.
