We represent clients in all aspects of financial transactions, RESPA and TILA compliance, secured and unsecured debt placement, loan workouts, commercial lending documentation, defeasances, and securitizations.  Our clients include banks and thrift institutions, real estate developers, utilities, water and energy companies, governmental and public agencies, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and leasing and finance companies.

Our litigation experience extends to virtually every type of dispute facing financial institutions.  These include lender-liability actions, bankruptcy proceedings and litigation, foreclosures and foreclosure-related litigation, litigation arising out of secured and unsecured loans, receivership litigation and securities laws, and antitrust claims.

We represent the FDIC and banks in director and officer liability litigation in a variety of complex matters requiring intimate knowledge of regulatory laws, and in matters in which potentially billions of dollars are at stake. 

We represent global and regional banks in commercial lending transactions, loan workouts, loan forbearances, defeasances of CMBS loans, loan modifications and all facets of real estate and asset-based secured lending. 

BANKRUPTCY

With the rapidly changing economic climate, Nossaman remains at the forefront of bankruptcy law practice.  From assisting healthcare companies in buying facilities from hospitals in bankruptcy, to working with energy companies or environmental creditors in complex claims litigation in insolvency cases, to representing creditors and other parties in Chapter 9 municipal bankruptcies, Nossaman is helping clients navigate through the legal issues confronting parties in bankruptcy proceedings. 

Nossaman helps parties affected by the bankruptcies of other entities to maximize asset recovery, prosecute existing claims, restructure financings, and realize purchase opportunities arising from Chapter 7 and 11 bankruptcies.  Our clients include real estate developers, utilities, water and energy companies, governmental and public agencies, banks and thrift institutions, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and leasing and finance companies. 

Nossaman's bankruptcy practice is active in the largest and most complex bankruptcy cases and corporate restructurings pending in jurisdictions throughout the United States.  Our attorneys represent creditors and other interested parties, including government agencies, public utilities, secured and unsecured lenders, environmental claimants, parties to insurance coverage and proceeds disputes, bondholders, asset purchasers, real estate lessors, parties to executory contracts, defendants in preference and other transfer avoidance litigation, trade creditors, equity holders, as well as statutory and ad hoc committees.  We also represent the FDIC as receiver of the subsidiary financial institutions in litigation against holding company bankruptcy debtors and trustees involving ownership rights in tax refunds, insurance premium refunds and other assets.

Our bankruptcy practice draws on the depth and sophistication of Nossaman's talented and experienced trial lawyers providing us with the platform to deliver unparalleled client service in the most contentious or complicated liquidations, reorganizations, or workouts.
