Our Bankruptcy team litigates cases in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit. We regularly pursue automatic stay and adequate protection matters, Chapter 11 plan funding, claims objections and related negotiations, Chapter 7 trustee preference actions and adversary complaints. We also serve as local counsel to clients of out-of-area law firms that require representation in proceedings and filings in Maryland, Virginia or the District of Columbia.
Attorneys from our Bankruptcy practice often collaborate with Hyatt & Weber lawyers located in our Annapolis, Baltimore and Northern Virginia offices to provide seasoned counsel in matters that cross one or more traditional practice lines. Through our ability to efficiently address bankruptcy-related issues that have broader Real Estate, Banking, Employment Law, Business Law or Estate Planning and Probate implications, we are able to deliver in-depth perspective and added value to our clients.
