Stoel Rives LLP offers a broad range of out-of-court and in court financial restructuring and corporate reorganization services to corporate borrowers and institutional lenders and funds. Our services include representing parties in bankruptcy court proceedings, advising businesses on operational reorganizations and distressed assets sales, negotiating refinancings for corporate borrowers, and advising boards on their duties in the zone of insolvency. We have a fully integrated team of bankruptcy lawyers who regularly draw on the diverse multidisciplinary talents of the firm, including extensive experience in corporate, real estate, labor and employment, commercial litigation and tax law. Our industry expertise can be particularly invaluable in the corporate bankruptcy space. Our attorneys have significant experience in a wide array of industries, including:

  • beverage and hospitality
  • energy
  • health care
  • manufacturing
  • municipal debt
  • oil and gas
  • real estate
  • retail
  • telecommunications
  • utilities

In terms of our client base, our bankruptcy lawyers have sat on all sides of the negotiating table.  We represent debtors, secured and unsecured financial and trade creditors (including banks and other institutional lenders), creditors’ committees in chapter 11 cases, lessors of real and personal property, trustees in bankruptcy and receivers in state court proceedings, and investors and acquirers of distressed debt and special assets.

Our lawyers are actively involved in speaking and writing on topics relating to bankruptcy and restructuring. In 2014, members of our team launched the Restructuring Debt Review — a blog targeted at providing legal developments in bankruptcy law.
