Creditors’ Rights

Kell, Alterman & Runstein, L.L.P. represents a variety of secured lenders including some of the nation’s largest financial institutions. Our attorneys represent secured lenders in perfecting and enforcing their rights in negotiated transactions, structured workouts and when necessary, in state and federal courts. They also work with clients to document loan transactions under the Uniform Commercial Code and state and federal regulations. We regularly represent lenders in state and federal courts in California, Delaware, Oregon, Washington, and other jurisdictions.

Community and national banks engage us to assess and reduce the non-performing assets in their commercial loan portfolios, including loans secured by real and personal property. We assist troubled or undercapitalized financial institutions with raising additional capital, addressing regulatory orders related to capital adequacy and asset quality, and complying with regulatory requirements for troubled loans.

  • Bankruptcy, including protection of creditors' rights in bankruptcy
  • Commercial foreclosures

The services we provide in bankruptcy proceedings include receiverships, commercial foreclosures, and recovery of personal property collateral.
