We Get Bankruptcy.

We have experienced attorneys to guide you through a liquidation proceeding.




Creditors’ Rights in Bankruptcy Proceedings

The attorneys of Baltimore-based law firm Rosenberg Martin Greenberg represent secured lenders, landlords, purchasers of estate assets, and various other creditors in bankruptcy proceedings throughout the United States, most frequently in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, West Virginia, the District of Columbia and Pennsylvania. RMG attorneys are licensed in state and federal courts in each of these jurisdictions.

We do not represent debtors in bankruptcy proceedings.

Work with experienced creditors’ rights attorneys in Baltimore area

A creditor-oriented attorney is a tremendous asset to the creditor potentially suffering a loss due to a bankruptcy filing. Working with an experienced firm dedicated to the singular task of protecting your rights as a legitimate creditor is critical to recovering a significant debt owed. Let a team of seasoned legal professionals assert your rights against the collateral and find legal grounds for relief.

The law firm of Rosenberg Martin Greenberg regularly litigates complicated bankruptcy disputes involving cash collateral, automatic stays, claims, preferences, exemptions, and discharge and plan confirmations. Absent proactive representation, a bankruptcy case can take on a life of its own over several years, costing the client excessive attorneys’ fees. Our team will make every effort to bring the case to an expedited resolution, consistent with the client’s goals.

Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights

When debtors file for bankruptcy, RMG is committed to asserting and protecting the creditor’s rights in an aggressive but cost-effective manner.  The successful advocacy of creditors’ rights in bankruptcy depend largely on our attorneys using their vast experience and knowledge of the debtor’s attorney and the bankruptcy judge to bring about desired results.  Other important factors include the “strength” of the underlying loan documents, the priority of the claim, statutory exemptions, and determining whether there is a basis for successfully arguing that the debt in question is not dischargeable.  Other important tasks include timely filing of proofs of claim, determining whether to initiate an adversary proceeding or contested matter, and monitoring all filings and events over time.  Any failure of procedure can be the first step toward not having your debt repaid because of the bankruptcy filing.

Creditors’ Rights Litigation

The Creditor Rights Department of Rosenberg Martin Greenberg has the resources to successfully assert the rights of any type of creditor or other interested party in the proceedings. We put our significant resources to work right away. Though our firm is designed to handle cases on a large scale, we treat each of our clients to a personal level of service you won’t find from other large firms.

For 30 years, RMG has served as defense counsel in creditor rights litigation as it pertains to bankruptcy.  We have significant experience at every stage of litigation from the first filing to appeals.

We are happy to address every concern related to this complicated legal process including:

  • Contesting use of cash collateral
  • Filing motions to lift automatic stay
  • Raising objections to confirmation
  • Defending preference claims
  • Initiating collateral dispute issues
  • Advising on issues of loan modification, workouts, and debt restructuring
  • Defending priority disputes
  • Preparing proofs of claim
