Bankruptcy & Creditors’ Rights

Sands Anderson can serve your legal needs with steadfast, thorough and attentive guidance in all aspects of bankruptcy and creditors’ rights law.

Our attorneys have extensive experience in both financial reorganizations, whether accomplished in or out of court, and bankruptcy matters, in which our lawyers represent both debtors and creditors, as well as Chapter 7 and 11 trustees, committees and liquidating trusts.  These representations have involved a variety of industries and have extended to the representation of corporations, large and small, limited liability companies, partnerships and high net worth individuals.  In addition, Sands Anderson lawyers also provide services in commercial collections and creditor remedies.
