For decades, the attorneys that make up the bankruptcy and financial restructuring group at Bernstein-Burkley have guided individuals and businesses through the complex process of acquiring assets from bankruptcy estates. Whether dealing with bankruptcy trustees that courts have appointed to liquidate assets, or negotiating with debtors seeking to sell all of their assets free and clear, our attorneys have successfully aided our clients through the purchase of all kinds of assets from bankruptcy estates. We have helped our clients acquire everything from equipment and machinery, to residential and commercial properties, to businesses sold as a going-concern.
Our clients benefit from our expertise in all facets of bankruptcy asset acquisitions, beginning with the negotiation of favorable terms and conditions, following through to the closing on the sale, and finishing with the guarantee that the sellers have complied with all of the terms and conditions of the sale. More importantly, our core experience and focus in bankruptcy and financial restructuring guarantees that our clients receive the benefits and protections of Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code.
A cornerstone of acquiring assets from a bankruptcy estate is that Section 363 allows the sale of estate property free and clear of liens, claims and encumbrances. Our experience ensures that trustees and debtors conduct the sale in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure. By leading our clients through the Section 363 bankruptcy sale process, we not only secure remarkable bargains for our clients, but also provide our clients with complete defenses to any future claims that creditors may raise against the acquired assets. We maintain utmost good faith in all phases of the bankruptcy sale process to ensure that the Bankruptcy Court affords our clients with invaluable security of Section 363(m), which limits the effect of a successful appeal of the order approving the sale.
Our business approach allows our bankruptcy and restructuring attorneys to secure the best deal possible for the assets to be acquired by our clients. Our legal experience allows our attorneys to preserve and protect our clients’ rights and interests through and after the conclusion of the sale process. We work to make certain that our clients have a positive experience, from beginning to end, in acquiring assets from a bankruptcy estate.
