Bankruptcy

Keesal, Young & Logan represents a number of clients in bankruptcy matters across the United States.  Our practice generally focuses on creditors’ rights, and we have represented clients in contested matters and adversary proceedings in cases arising under all chapters of the United States Bankruptcy Code.  Our experience includes:

  • Filing and obtaining payment on proofs of claim (including requests for administrative priority claims), and opposing objections to claims.
  • Filing motions for and obtaining relief from the automatic stay to allow pursuit of collection and foreclosure actions.
  • Filing and prosecuting complaints for non-dischargeability and/or to deny a debtor’s discharge entirely to allow the collection of debts following bankruptcy.
  • Filing and prosecuting objections to claims by debtors that certain property is “exempt” from collection efforts.
  • Defending “turnover” and “fraudulent conveyance” actions to recover alleged property of the bankruptcy estate transferred prior to the bankruptcy.
  • Defending attempts by debtors to extinguish liens of the firm’s clients on real or personal property.
  • Advising clients with respect to safely structuring ongoing business relationships with customers or vendors who are in or near bankruptcy.
  • Advising clients regarding effect of recent amendments to the Bankruptcy Code, including those made as a result of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (2002) and the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005.

In addition to appearing in the United States Bankruptcy Court, we represent clients in connection with bankruptcy appeals before United States District Courts, Bankruptcy Appellate Panels and at the Circuit Court level.  KYL has an impressive record in bankruptcy related appeals and we are proud to have served as counsel of record with respect to several favorable published opinions.
