At Schoenthaler we can assist creditors and defend their rights with respect to Chapter 7, 11, and 13 needs. Experience matters, and at Schoenthaler our attorneys are dedicated to using that experience to zealously represent our clients in bankruptcy proceedings.

Schoenthaler Law maintains a full-service bankruptcy and restructuring practice with proven success representing virtually all constituencies in a distressed situation. We provide counsel for debtors, creditors and third parties in out-of-court negotiations as well as representation in state and local court litigation.


Our firm has substantial bankruptcy experience representing business debtors, secured and unsecured creditors, court-appointed trustees, indenture trustees and creditors’ committees. We also represent multi-tiered financial institutions, commercial mortgage-backed securities special servicers (CMBS), pension fund administrators, asset-based lenders, trade creditors and public debt holders.


Unlike firms that limit their practices primarily to bankruptcy, Schoenthaler can leverage resources across multiple practice areas, disciplines and regions to assist our clients in bankruptcy or restructuring matters. This means faster, more efficient service, particularly in larger, complicated Chapter 11 reorganizations. In public company cases, for example, we have achieved consolidations, resolved labor and environmental issues, provided comprehensive tax advice and resolved securities problems, including the issuance of new securities by the debtor on emergence from bankruptcy.
