At Gordon Arata Montgomery Barnett, we routinely assist clients as they face the myriad of insolvency, restructuring and creditors’ rights issues that arise in business. Our Bankruptcy, Restructuring & Creditors’ Rights practice group has the breadth of experience it takes; it includes a former bankruptcy judge, attorneys with decades of experience and several former judicial law clerks.
In addition to lawyers admitted to practice before state and federal courts in Louisiana, Texas and various other states, our ranks include former business owners and consultants, CEOs and entrepreneurs with real world understanding of the problems clients face. We are well-versed and seasoned when it comes to bankruptcy law, business strategy and creditors’ rights. Because bankruptcy issues frequently overlap with other disciplines, our practice group draws lawyers from practice areas within the firm—such as energy law, finance and real estate, to name a few. By doing so, we ensure that the group has the requisite depth to address the most novel issues effectively and provide a nimble resource for our clients’ concerns
Bankruptcy, insolvency and restructuring situations often require immediate action to preserve rights and claims, yet we also know when and how to avoid impulsive moves that can undermine a client’s case.

We help identify risks and guide clients in implementing the right strategies to minimize exposure.
