Overview

For more than four decades, Thompson & Knight’s Bankruptcy and Restructuring Practice Group has played a leading role in corporate reorganizations, both in and out of court, and in bankruptcy proceedings of all types throughout the nation. Recognizing that the needs of our clients are national and international in scope, we have developed an expertise in handling insolvency-related matters wherever they may arise.

Our attorneys are recognized locally, nationally, and internationally for their expertise in the areas of bankruptcy and restructuring. Our experience ranges from medium-sized regional bankruptcy cases to creditor representation in “mega cases”: Life Partners, Lehman Brothers, Mirant Corp., Enron, WorldCom, and Adelphia, among others.

Thompson & Knight attorneys have reorganized businesses in complex Chapter 11 proceedings nationwide, including confirming Chapter 11 plans in industries ranging from energy to retail. On the creditor side, we represent secured creditors, committees of unsecured creditors, and lessors of real property in major Chapter 11 reorganizations. We have a full line of support to assist clients in evaluating all options, including litigation, real estate, tax, finance, regulatory, environmental, corporate, labor, securities, and other specialized areas of law that a debtor, individual creditor, committee, or counterparty may need in order to evaluate all alternatives.
