Clark Partington Recognized As Metropolitan Tier 1 Law Firm In Bankruptcy & Creditor-Debtor Rights/Insolvency & Reorganization Law By U.S. News – Best Lawyers©

Clark Partington is pleased to announce that it has received recognition as a Metropolitan Tier 1 law firm in Bankruptcy and Creditor-Debtor Rights / Insolvency and Reorganization Law by U.S. News – Best Lawyers© “Best Law Firms.” Best Lawyers annually highlights North America’s top legal talent, and its recognition is widely regarded by both clients and legal professionals as a significant honor.

The attorneys comprising our Bankruptcy & Creditors Rights Practice Area include Douglas Bates (Chair, Commercial Litigation), Keith Bell, Jr. (Managing Partner, Tallahassee), and Shareholders Judson Brandt, Ian Macdonald, Robert Powell, and Trevor Thompson.  We congratulate these gentlemen on receiving this honor highlighting their hard work and dedication to their craft.

The firm’s bankruptcy bench has collectively experienced virtually every facet of bankruptcy representation, including engagements for creditors, debtors, panel trustees, liquidating trustees, unsecured creditor committees spanning the gamut of each primary chapter of the BK Code including Chapter 7, 11, 12, and 13. In the adversary arena, the team has litigated — both offensively and defensively — discharge and dischargeability objections, plan confirmation issues, “claw-back” actions to avoid fraudulent and preferential transfers, and an array of contested matters like stay relief motions and claims objections.
