RESTRUCTURING, BANKRUPTCY & INSOLVENCY
Our Restructuring, Bankruptcy & Insolvency professionals are among the most highly regarded in matters involving business crisis and transition. The hallmark of our practice is that we’re creative problem solvers. We regularly represent clients in restructuring troubled businesses, including in Chapter 11 reorganizations. We also represent acquirers, investors, trustees, lenders and other creditors in matters involving the restructuring, reorganization, liquidation or sale of troubled businesses and real estate projects. We pride ourselves on having “real world” business experience that helps us to find and employ creative, efficient solutions to the problems that arise from businesses in crisis. Our team’s current and former clients range from family-owned businesses to national, publicly-traded corporations.
CREDITOR RIGHTS & LOAN ENFORCEMENT
The professionals of the Andante Law Group regularly assist lenders and creditors in enforcing their rights in bankruptcies of their borrowers, by conducting loan restructuring and forbearance negotiations, by seeking the appointment of receivers, and through foreclosing liens to recover collateral. We also have significant experience in enforcing loan and guarantee obligations through litigation, including the enforcement of judgments. Our current and former clients include private investors and lenders, commercial banks, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).
Foreclosure disputes involve a unique interplay between statutory, contract, and property law. What is important to note is that the relatively short statutory process makes nearly every foreclosure dispute time-sensitive. Our attorneys have represented lenders and borrowers in cases from multi-million dollar commercial property disputes to difficult consumer cases presenting the potential loss of a home, in every court in Arizona from the justice courts, to bankruptcy court, to the Arizona Supreme Court. The “all or nothing” result of foreclosure and related litigation requires a unique and creative approach to resolving foreclosure disputes. Andante Law Group attorneys have years of experience both negotiating and litigating such disputes to reach a cost effective and positive result for their clients situated as lender or borrower, in both commercial and consumer cases.
Obtaining a judgment is the first step in the collection process, but rarely the last. Andante Law Group’s attorneys understand and utilize the broad set of collection tools provided under Arizona and Federal Law in assessing and implementing strategies to best enforce a judgment creditor’s rights. In judgment enforcement cases, dollars are always in short supply and cost sensitivity is a priority consideration. Accordingly, our attorneys focus on cost-effective collection strategies and procedures that help maximize their clients’ recoveries while minimizing fees and expenses. From establishing and enforcing judgment liens, to recovering improperly transferred or concealed property, to litigating and enforcing judgments that cannot be discharged in bankruptcy, Andante Law Group’s professionals have decades of experience in every aspect of judgment enforcement.
BUSINESS DISPUTES & LITIGATION
The name “Business Disputes & Litigation” is no accident. When business disputes arise, your first thought shouldn’t be litigation…but when other ways of dealing with business disputes fail, you want a capable litigator in your corner. The Andante Law Group has highly experienced, resourceful and creative litigators who understand that even well-thought-out, efficiently conducted litigation is an expensive and unpleasant last resort. While it’s crucial to obtain the best technical advice possible about a legal dispute, it’s equally important for that advice to be practical, and tailored to your business needs. We strive to bring the best of both worlds to bear to resolve our clients’ business disputes.
BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS
Real world business experience, innate creativity and technical experience combine to make the professionals at Andante Law Group formidable allies in designing deals and getting them to the finish line. Our experience in designing structures, negotiating agreements and leading transactions to closing spans a wide range of industries and deal sizes. The highest compliment among the professionals at Andante Law Group is to pronounce that someone is a “get it” person. We get it. And we make sure that our clients get what they’re after in a deal.
