Bankruptcy and Creditor’s Rights
Stevens & Lee represents financial institutions in all types of bankruptcy and financial restructuring proceedings. We have experience in all aspects of financial transactions and commercial collections and are able to approach bankruptcy and workout proceedings and corporate restructurings from a broad perspective. We have represented banks and other lending institutions; financially distressed companies; stockholders, bondholders and parties with other debt or quasi-equity positions; creditors’ committees; and trade creditors, including manufacturers, insurers and others in bankruptcy courts throughout the country.
In addition, we routinely defend major financial institutions and other parties involved in the process of extending consumer credit in actions brought by consumers under the Truth in Lending Act, the Real Estate Settlement and Procedures Act (RESPA), the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Homeowner Equity Protection Act of 1984, the Pennsylvania Uniform Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law and other consumer protection statutes.
