Out-of-the-box thinking can provide surprisingly positive results.
Banks and other creditors look to Downs Rachlin Martin’s Bankruptcy and Financial Services Litigation team to both defend them and enforce their rights in bankruptcy and other state and federal courts, and to advise them when restructuring is the best solution to a problem loan or financial relationship.
Experience that runs the gamut.
