Recognizing that quick action is essential, our creditors' rights and collections attorneys take immediate steps to advance our clients' interests. In bankruptcies and state court litigation, we navigate complex insolvency proceedings by drawing upon deep expertise and insight. For our clients, this means creative and efficient collections, out-of-court debt restructurings, and work-outs.

Our lawyers take an integrated approach to legal services, drawing experience from our banking, tax, real estate, construction, oil and gas, securities, and financial practices to maximize returns for creditors. Kegler Brown's breadth of knowledge and team approach is also invaluable in assessing client risks in business asset acquisitions, mergers or other business-to-business transactions with weak or failing parties.

Our team has vast experience working with creditor issues and bankruptcy matters. On a nationwide basis, we conduct all of the outside legal collection work for a Fortune 20 company. In connection with that representation, we have developed a cost-effective alternative billing arrangement that provides the client with a greater level of certainty in its legal budget. In another recent client engagement, Kegler Brown attorneys assisted a manufacturing client in structuring international agreements with a failing critical vendor to ensure continued supply chain access that was essential to the client’s business. In yet another example of our team’s focused approach to bottom-line success, we achieved one of the largest single garnishment recoveries ever in Franklin County.
