Bankruptcy and Insolvency-related litigation can take many forms, including avoidance actions, successor liability and alter ego claims, lender liability claims, alleged breaches of fiduciary duty and government investigations and enforcement actions. King & Spalding lawyers have substantial experience with respect to each of these areas.
Our clients include (i) banks and other financial institutions, (ii) directors, officers, managers, and shareholders of financially distressed companies, and (iii) a variety of companies impacted by insolvency or financially distressed situations.
King & Spalding attorneys have successfully defended clients in “high stakes” fraudulent transfer actions and in situations involving successor liability, veil piercing and alter ego allegations. Our attorneys also have vast experience successfully defending a wide array of clients from claims alleging breaches of fiduciary duties and aiding and abetting such breaches. Based on our experience and successes in these types of claims, Chambers has noted that King & Spalding is “highly regarded for its bankruptcy litigation.”
Our lawyers have tried cases before judges, juries and arbitration panels across the country. While many of these matters have been tried in bankruptcy courts, our attorneys have also represented clients in insolvency-related litigation in federal district courts and state courts. Our lawyers also have appeared on behalf of numerous clients in federal appeals courts in insolvency-related matters.
We have a deep bench of lawyers in several offices whose practices encompass insolvency-related litigation matters. Our team includes four fellows of the American College of Trial Lawyers, as well as 11 fellows in the American College of Bankruptcy. We also capitalize on close relationships with our partners in our Appellate, Securities Litigation, Special Matters/Government Investigations, and Financial Restructuring practices to best serve our clients’ needs.
