Special Recognition:

Craig’s bankruptcy practice focuses on representation of senior and junior secured creditors (such as commercial and agricultural lenders, private lenders, and judgment holders), trade creditors (such as feed companies, suppliers, and service companies), general unsecured creditors, and other parties (such as bankruptcy trustees, creditors committees, landlords, contractors, and litigation plaintiffs). The subject matter of client issues will run the gamut encountered in bankruptcy, including, among other things: relief from the automatic stay; adequate protection; sales, leases and use of property, including cash collateral; administrative priority claim assertion; preferential payment and other avoidable transfer claims and defenses; contract assumption and rejection issues; plan disclosure and confirmation objections, claim and exemption objections; lien stripping, avoidance and priority disputes; and objections to debtor discharge and the ability to discharge of specific debts.

Craig’s business practice focuses on pre-bankruptcy debt collection efforts; formation and dissolution of corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs), partnerships, and other entities; business buy-sell agreements; entity operation and general business counseling; asset sales; and contract negotiation, review and drafting.
