Any information that you send us in an e-mail message should not be confidential or otherwise privileged information. Sending us an e-mail message will not make you a client of Robins Kaplan LLP. We do not accept representation until we have had an opportunity to evaluate your matter, including but not limited to an ethical evaluation of whether we are in a conflict position to represent you. Accordingly, the information you provide to us in an e-mail should not be information for which you would have an expectation of confidentiality.

If you are interested in having us represent you, you should call us so we can determine whether the matter is one for which we are willing or able to accept professional responsibility. We will not make this determination by e-mail communication. The telephone numbers and addresses for our offices are listed on this page. We reserve the right to decline any representation. We may be required to decline representation if it would create a conflict of interest with our other clients.

Sudden or dramatic business reversals can paralyze decision makers making it difficult to move forward toward a profitable turnaround. At Robins Kaplan LLP, we help guide our clients through the restructuring process and build the consensus needed to bring the parties together or outmaneuver our adversaries in court. Our restructuring attorneys have experience in creatively representing every possible constituency in the restructuring and workout area, including: the company, its owners, guarantors and affiliates, its senior and junior secured and unsecured banks and other creditors, its creditor committees, acquiring companies, and investors. This gives us a deep understanding of the various positions different constituent creditors--secured and unsecured--may take. To create value for clients, our restructuring lawyers leverage their understanding of sophisticated bankruptcy and litigation strategies and tactics. We employ effective techniques such as:

  • Auctions
  • First and Second Position Lien Agreements and Modifications
