Insolvency

Murphy & King’s Bankruptcy and Financial Restructuring Group has forged a reputation as a leader in the field, and is currently ranked as one of the top three restructuring practices in Massachusetts by Chambers and Partners. We deploy our skills as negotiators, litigators, and transactional advocates to fit the client’s business needs and objectives as we navigate the fast-paced and often contentious landscape of financial distress. Our attorney team is regularly engaged by debtors, creditors, creditors’ committees, estate fiduciaries, and investors nationwide to represent their interests in a variety of situations, from formal bankruptcy proceedings to out-of-court workouts. Our clients operate across a wide range of sectors, including real estate, hospitality, health care, technology, telecommunications, manufacturing, and retail. The strategic guidance we provide to them is informed by our substantial experience and commitment to sensible solutions. We are also regularly selected to serve in fiduciary and investigative roles such as Chapter 11 or Chapter 7 trustee, examiner, state or federal receiver, and assignee for the benefit of creditors in state proceedings. Our experienced team recognizes the unique challenges, pressures, and risks that arise when a business is in trouble and we make it our business to harness our expertise to maximize value for our clients.
