Bankruptcy Law

At POHL, PA, we represent secured and unsecured financial institutions, funds, private equity investors, landlords, developers, trade creditors, debtors, trustees, and official and unofficial committees in bankruptcy cases and out-of-court restructurings in South Carolina, North Carolina and California.

We represent a variety of financial institutions and other debt and equity holders in all aspects of financially distressed situations, and we are recognized as a leading firm in the area of DIP and exit lending. The firm is active in the distressed debt-trading arena on behalf of investment banks and funds, and represents parties in a variety of turnaround situations.

We assist private companies in the liquidation of their company subsidiaries and the workout of distressed investments, and we advise foreign participants in cross-border transactions. We also advise venture capital investors and bridge lenders, as well as vendors, in connection with transactional and bankruptcy issues.

In addition, we have represented purchasers of assets from bankruptcy estates, foreclosure sales, and assignments for the benefit of creditors, and we have handled all aspects of due diligence, contract negotiations, "stalking horse" procedures, auction, and closing related to the purchase of assets from a bankruptcy estate or other distressed transactions, as well as litigation relating to such transactions. We also assist in "restarts," in which interested investors or creditors organize a new vehicle to carry forward the failed business without successor liability.

We have extensive background in complex reorganizations and our reputation with financial institutions have enhanced our ability to work effectively with distressed companies in both workout and bankruptcy contexts. Supported by the breadth of the firm’s practice and intimate involvement in a wide array of industries, we have represented debtors as diverse as retailers, service providers, technology companies, venture capitalists, real estate developers, and property managers.
