Creditors’ Rights and Restructuring

Tim focuses his practice on bankruptcy, restructuring, insolvency, and creditors’ rights matters. He regularly represents banks; investment funds and non-traditional lenders; suppliers; customers; landlords; tenants and trade, and other unsecured creditors; official committees; debtors; and liquidating trustees in all aspects of reorganization and liquidation cases under the Bankruptcy Code.

Tim frequently advises clients in out-of-court workouts and distressed transactions. These have included sales under section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code and Assignments for the Benefit of Creditors; structuring transactions and enforcing creditors’ rights under Articles 2 (Sales) and 9 (Secured Transactions) of the Uniform Commercial Code; and creditors’ rights litigation, ranging from receivership, to replevin and judicial foreclosure, to commercial mortgage foreclosure litigation.

Tim also represents insurers, reinsurers, claims administrators, and premium financing lenders in policyholder bankruptcy cases and state court insolvency proceedings.

Before joining MPS, Tim was a partner at a global Am Law 100 law firm. Before that, he was a partner and member of the executive committee of another Am Law 100 law firm. Tim began his practice in California.
