Committee Representations

aggressive, creative, efficient

Our role is to assist in maximizing value on your claims.


The bankruptcy lawyers at Morris James represent official committees of unsecured creditors, official committees of equity holders, ad hoc groups, and chapter 11 trustees. Such representations often entail an important investigative function, as the committee or trustee may undertake to investigate and pursue legal claims that the debtor and its professionals cannot, or decline, to pursue.

Morris James regularly represents committees in Chapter 11 cases involving the sale of all or substantially all of the Debtors' assets. These cases involve a wide wide array of industries, including:

  • Automotive
  • eCommerce & Gig Economy
  • Cryptocurrency
  • Energy
  • Food Production & Service
  • Fitness & Leisure
  • Hospitality & Lodging
  • Industrial & Manufacturing
  • Medical & Pharmaceutical
  • Professional Services
  • Retail
  • Transportation

While the industry of each case may vary, one constant is the ability of our team to understand and help manage sale and plan processes to maximize the value of the estates.

Our Philosophy of Committee Representations

  • Preparation and planning are the keys to any successful representation regardless of whether the cases are a financial restructuring, a pure reorganization, or a liquidation through a sale of substantially all of the company’s assets, all to maximize the value of the estate
  • Negotiate the best resolution for those matters that can be resolved, and litigate those matters that cannot be resolved
  • Minimize administrative expenses by exiting from bankruptcy as efficiently as possible
