Beckmen Law’s Bankruptcy practice offers clients creative solutions by combining the firm’s bankruptcy experience with its proficiency in related areas like mergers and acquisitions, asset-based lending, secured transactions, distressed real estate, and intellectual property.
The firm’s practice of bankruptcy law includes the following areas:
Our bankruptcy attorneys assist consumers in managing their overwhelming debt and strive to steer them on a path of a financially sound life. They understand that bad things happen to good people and feel no one deserves to receive harassing calls and mail from creditors or have their wages garnished. Our attorneys will guide you through the process of determining all of your options and executing a plan to eliminate your financial problems. We also realize that that bankruptcy is not the only option and we will evaluate your financial conditions prior to choosing to file for bankruptcy. Bankruptcy isn’t the only option, a lot of times it is the easiest, and our attorneys want to show you how to avoid it if possible because the consequences of bankruptcy linger for many years, whereas walking a path of sound financial practices can help you build a stronger financial future.
Our bankruptcy, tax, and corporate attorney groups work together to handle corporate reorganization, in- and out-of-court restructurings and insolvencies, debtor-creditor relationships, and bankruptcy, including litigating issues related to all of the above in bankruptcy court and in state court. Our experience on both the debtor and creditor side allows us to understand all sides of a problem or opportunity and to structure creative, informed, and practical solutions to protect and advance our clients’ interests. By involving several areas of our legal practice to assist in Corporate Restructuring and Reorganizations, we ensure all matters are handle in a competent and efficient manner the first time.
Our attorneys are experienced in safeguarding wealth and assets from attack by future, unsecured creditors. The assets that we have protected include liquid assets, securities, real estate, business interests, professional practices, works of art, intellectual property, cars, boats, jewelry and virtually anything of value. We protect these assets from threats such as aggressive litigants and predatory creditors, and preserve the assets for the benefit of our clients and their families.
Our attorneys utilize a variety of legal strategies that are unique to each client and the protections they wish to implement. We protect assets using domestic laws and entities such as limited partnerships, trusts and corporations, as well as the laws of foreign countries.
We carefully safeguard the privacy of our clients and the confidentiality of their assets. Rather than basing asset protection strategies on the supposed “banking secrecy”, we use the law – – both U.S. and foreign – – to create secure, impenetrable barriers around those assets.
