LH&M’s practice is heavily dedicated to bankruptcy-related issues including litigation, restructuring, workouts, creditors’ rights, mediation, and negotiation. We have a keen understanding of the Bankruptcy Code, the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, and the Local Bankruptcy Rules for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York. LH&M has been involved in thousands of bankruptcy cases, which run the gamut from simple consumer cases to complex corporate reorganizations. We have represented parties on all sides of bankruptcy cases, including debtors, trustees, examiners, institutional clients, businesses, lenders and creditors. The diversity of our practice and depth of our experience distinguish LH&M from other law firms.
LH&M has a comprehensive business law practice ranging from the preparation of simple shareholders’ agreements to the negotiation of complex, multi-party stock purchase agreements. We have been involved in a variety of business transactions and have earned a reputation of being detail-oriented, reasonably-priced attorneys who provide impeccable results. At LH&M, we take the time to understand our clients’ goals and needs. This allows us to draft agreements that clearly incorporate our clients’ intentions which, in turn, avoids the potential for disputes over ambiguous language.
In the area of foreclosure defense, LH&M’s team of sophisticated litigators use their legal experience and courtroom knowledge to provide the best available defenses. For many people, their home is their single greatest asset. LH&M recognizes that during difficult economic times, or when faced with hardship, loss of employment or illness, people sometimes fall behind on mortgage payments. We believe in educating our clients in order to get them back onto the right track and partnering with them so that the best possible defense can be mounted.
Real Estate Transactions
LH&M has a broad real estate practice, ranging from simple house closings to complex, multi-unit commercial building transactions. We also have experience working with developers in the preparation, negotiation and execution of large and complex multi-unit development and construction deals. We understand the costs involved in real estate transactions, and our fees are always commensurate with the results achieved.
LH&M has a substantial litigation practice. We represent clients at trial in both federal and state courts. LH&M’s litigators have forged a reputation of being zealous advocates with the utmost integrity. We approach each of our client’s cases in a fair, reasoned, and practical manner. Our litigators have extensive trial experience and are known for their signature preparedness. Because litigation can often prove costly and sometimes unnecessary, prior to trial, LH&M conducts detailed cost-benefit analyses with our clients in order to determine whether a negotiated solution may be reached. In addition to being successful and experienced negotiators, LH&M also maintains a keen understanding of alternative forms of dispute resolution. Overall, this strategy ensures that the best possible resolution may be reached at the lowest cost, whether that be through negotiations, alternative dispute resolution, or a successful trial.
