Health Care Bankruptcy & Restructuring

Our bankruptcy and corporate finance attorneys work closely with our health care practice group to assist all types of clients involved with distressed health care businesses and providers, including hospitals. We represent debtors, secured creditors, unsecured creditors and suppliers, bankruptcy trustees, and court-appointed receivers. Our lawyers have handled or have been involved with numerous complex Chapter 11 cases, including bankruptcies of large health care organizations, and have appeared in bankruptcy courts all over the United States.

Our health care bankruptcy practice at Davis Wright centers around three key areas of service:

  • Providing debtor counsel to distressed health care businesses, including hospitals, in need of debt restructuring, forbearance from creditors, or liquidation of health care assets
  • Maximizing recovery for health care clients with outstanding contracts with vendors, suppliers or consumers obtaining bankruptcy protection
  • Protecting buyers of distressed health care businesses, including hospitals, against potential losses and liens

For health care clients in financial distress, we strive to minimize instability and preserve the value of their organizations. Because health care reorganizations are subject to complex regulation, our health care regulatory team works with restructuring attorneys to provide seamless and proactive counsel.

For buyers of bankrupt health care businesses or their assets, we provide strategic counsel on nonstandard transactions, mergers and acquisitions.

We work with lenders, corporate clients, and investors to collect loans, protect investments, foreclose security interests and trust deeds, and protect and recover their collateral or investments, in and out of court. We assist in documenting loan extensions, forbearance agreements, and security agreements.

With an interdisciplinary team capable of meeting the precise needs of any bankruptcy restructuring, our attorneys can quickly target the core issues involved, maximizing financial outcomes with minimal expense.
