At Much Shelist, we have successfully litigated virtually every kind of issue that can arise in a bankruptcy case. On behalf of plaintiffs and defendants, we have tried disputes involving:

  • Appointment of trustees
  • Business, asset and lien valuation issues
  • Dischargeability of debt
  • Dismissals and conversions of Chapter 11 cases
  • Fraudulent transfers, preference and other avoidance claims
  • Injunctions and motions
  • Involuntary petitions and bad faith filings of petitions
  • Leases and secured financing devices
  • Plans of reorganization
  • Section 363 sales, liens, lender liability

As an example of our litigation work, we successfully represented a debtor — a Midwestern food-product processing company in a groundbreaking case involving the wrongful commencement of an involuntary Chapter 11 petition. We convinced the court that the petition was filed in bad faith and enabled the debtor to recover actual and punitive damages as a result of the wrongful commencement of the case.
