Unsecured Creditors

Unsecured creditors – particularly creditors with significant claims against and extensive business relations with their customers and other contracting parties – have unique interests to protect when those other parties experience financial hardship.

Allen Matkins advises unsecured creditors on a wide range of issues, including filing and prosecuting state court breach of contract, guaranty, and reclamation proceedings, including applications for protective orders and attachment.

Should these or other issues precipitate a bankruptcy filing, we represent creditor clients in: 

  • Preparation and filing of claims and claim litigation 
  • Defense of fraudulent-transfer, preference and other avoidance actions 
  • Plan confirmation disputes 
  • Motions to dismiss or convert bankruptcy cases 
  • Trustee litigation

In cases where our clients serve on the committee of unsecured creditors appointed by the Office of the United States Trustee, we will advise a client representative and at times act as our clients’ representative on the committee.
