Bankruptcy and Insolvency
Sequor Law provides representation for clients in most aspects of bankruptcy and insolvency law both domestically in the US and in connection with insolvencies based outside the US.
In domestic US bankruptcies, Sequor Law provides representation of creditors and parties in interest in all aspects of the proceeding. Sequor Law regularly represents lenders in these cases including contested matters regarding cash collateral, valuation, stay relief motions and defenses, plan treatment, contested confirmations and competing plan proposals. Sequor Law also represents defendants in avoidance litigation as well as creditors objecting to the dischargeability of debt.
In international insolvencies, Sequor Law represents fiduciaries appointed to oversee the reorganization or liquidation of foreign corporations or individuals throughout the United States. In particular, Sequor Law has filed more than 30 cases under Chapter 15 of the United States Bankruptcy Code, obtaining recognition of the foreign proceeding by the US Courts and utilizing those cases to obtain discovery in the United States; to litigate causes of action against US defendants; or to support reorganization efforts in the home jurisdiction. Sequor Law has handled Chapter 15 cases coming from many common law jurisdictions, including Antigua, Barbados, BVI, Canada, Cayman Islands, and UK, and from various civil law jurisdictions including Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, and Romania. In other instances, Sequor Law has served as lead counsel on recognition cases filed in the courts of Australia, Colombia, the Isle of Man, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
