KGR’s origin is rooted in bankruptcy litigation – assisting distressed companies and creditors in workouts, turnarounds and reorganizations, and the application of business bankruptcy laws in Indiana. We understand troubled businesses bring a unique set of challenges for the company, as well as its creditors.
Based in Indianapolis, Indiana, our highly-skilled team of attorneys includes partners Harley Means, Melissa De Groff, Jim Knauer, Jay Kennedy, John Petr and associate Jason Mizzell – most of whom regularly teach Continuing Legal Education (CLE) on these specific issues to other attorneys.
Whether you are a creditor of a company in financial distress, or a business considering restructuring, our attorneys provide counsel to guide you through the complexities of Chapter 11 and other issues. We recognize the cost of protracted litigation for creditors. Whenever possible, we assist you through an efficient workout process, while simultaneously protecting collateral. Additionally, we represent recognizable traditional lenders and financing entities, in-house financiers, debt purchasers, as well as special servicers in connection with commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS).
KGR also understands that these kinds of issues aren’t just legal problems but also business problems, so we focus on helping our clients achieve business solutions first and foremost. Workouts are an important component of what we do.
In addition, we assist with Chapter 11 Subchapter V, which is a newer option intended to promote quick and efficient resolutions of problems facing small businesses.
If you are contemplating bankruptcy, want to find alternatives to bankruptcy, or you are a creditor of a financially troubled entity, please contact our team.
