Johnston Clem Gifford’s corporate plaintiff team focuses on identifying, pursuing, and monetizing claims for our corporate clients. During the case intake procedure, the firm performs a deep dive into the case facts. We use advanced analytic tools to learn as much as possible about potential targets, claims, forums, and other factors that can impact recovery. We also perform a “360 Review” of the case, early in the process, which involves professionals from other practice areas—including the bankruptcy, insolvency, and creditors’ rights practice group.
As a result, when defendants seek protection through a bankruptcy or restructuring process, our professionals are several steps ahead. Our bankruptcy group represents creditors’ committees, lenders, investors, landlords, vendors, and secured and unsecured creditors of all kinds when pursuing assets through the bankruptcy process. Claims owned by corporate plaintiffs can be valuable assets that require special treatment.
Sometimes, that treatment involves meeting the challenge in the new forum, seeking priority and payment against competing creditors. Other times, it means identifying insiders or affiliates who hold recoverable assets.
Our lawyers have produced remarkable results in insolvency-related complex litigation involving:
- Fraudulent conveyances
- Professional Liability Claims
- Accounting & Auditor Malpractice Claims
- Valuation Disputes
- Tax Litigation
