Creditors’ Rights

We provide thoughtful, aggressive, and experienced representation in state and federal courts on behalf of secured and unsecured creditors, banks, credit unions, consumer and commercial lenders and finance companies, landlords, tenants, suppliers, and other clients. KDDK attorneys have extensive experience in negotiating and documenting workouts of troubled secured and unsecured loans; development and review of reorganization plans; litigating foreclosure, receivership, replevin, attachment, repossession, fraudulent conveyance, and preferential transfer actions; and structuring financial transactions and settlements to minimize the impact of subsequent financial struggles.
