Bankruptcy & Restructuring Bankruptcy Litigation
In bankruptcy proceedings, negotiations are generally the way differences are solved. However, sometimes disputes within the case need to be litigated in order to be settled. These matters can arise for a variety of reasons, but the litigation process in bankruptcy proceedings is typically much faster than other types of litigation. It is crucial for those involved in a case to act quickly and follow the unique bankruptcy court litigation requirements. Some of the areas that may give rise to litigation include:
- Relief from the automatic stay
- Contested asset sales
- Claim objections
- Creditor preferences
- Contract disputes
- Disputes regarding governance of the debtor
- Recovery of fraudulently transferred assets
- Valuation disputes
Oil and gas companies involved in a bankruptcy case often have specific issues that can impact bankruptcy litigation. Valuable assets, such as leases and mineral rights, can motivate creditors and debtors to restructure in different ways than a normal company in bankruptcy might, but can also cause conflict among the parties involved. The number of interested parties and variety of jurisdictions in which a company operates can also create additional potential for litigation.
