Bracewell's award winning restructuring team offers experienced and comprehensive counsel to Chapter 11 debtors. Recent debtor representations have afforded our team numerous awards recently, including energy deal of the year, out-of-court restructuring deal of the year, section 363 sale of the year, and turnaround of the year. Our team assists corporate clients in pre-bankruptcy planning and strategy review. We also represent debtors in securing debtor-in-possession financing and renegotiating vendor and customer agreements so to maintain operations during an asset sale or reorganization. And with restructurings becoming more complex and litigious each year, our restructuring lawyers are skilled bankruptcy litigators who advocate in bankruptcy and appellate courts to enforce and defend the rights of our corporate clients. We regularly handle complex matters of first impression and we creatively and effectively respond to the diverse issues affecting litigation recoveries. We handle adversary proceedings, bankruptcy appeals and contested hearings throughout the US involving such issues as asset recovery, fraudulent conveyances and preferences, lender liability claims, make-whole disputes, recovery actions, contested plans of reorganization, valuation disputes, claim objections, Rule 2019 disputes, stay relief motions, adequate protections issues, cross-border insolvency disputes and executory contract issues.
