Murphey & Murphey’s creditor representation spans financial institutions, private lenders, judgment creditors, and secured and unsecured creditors. Our lawyers work with banks, commercial lenders, and other companies in need of legal assistance or general counsel regarding troubled loans, collections, repossession, foreclosure, enforcement of judgments, and receiverships. We also help our clients enforce their rights and pursue their remedies in bankruptcy reorganization and liquidation proceedings. It is more important now than ever for lenders to maintain complete and comprehensive records, clearly demarcate the work of loan officers and workout officers, ensure scrupulous compliance with consumer and financial privacy laws, and reject attempts to become inappropriately embroiled in borrowers’ business and financial decisions. These are touchstones of Murphey & Murphey’s services to our lender clients.
Our clients include local, regional, national, and international banks and lending institutions. Our legal services include loan restructuring and workout negotiations, loan collection litigation, receiverships, bankruptcy claims, foreclosures, and other dispositions of collateral. We advise our clients how to avoid lender liability and prepare our resources for litigation as necessary in all cases.
Through loan workout negotiations, loan modifications, and forbearance arrangements, we work with our lender clients to return loans in special assets to performing loans. We service loan-related matters on a statewide basis for several of our institutional clients.
In bankruptcy matters, we protect the interests of secured and unsecured creditors and work to recover their assets cost-effectively. We operate in a structured and efficient manner to take advantage of opportunities presented in bankruptcy proceedings.
Clients seek our help because we look at the long-term, whole picture. While our focus in litigation is prevailing and vindicating our clients’ rights, we do not lose sight of business-based solutions that may resolve litigation as quickly and efficiently as possible. We think in terms of a roadmap, spending time to discuss, in partnership with our clients, what the best, long-term solution should be for our client.
