Bankruptcy and Creditors' Rights

Banks and other financial institutions have relied upon Ryley Carlock & Applewhite for over 70 years as their "go-to" firm when loans have gotten in trouble. We know lending ­- we have worked with our clients through numerous economic downturns and we know the issues that our clients face in a highly regulated, competitive environment.

Decades of experience in representing clients in defaulted loans, restructurings, reorganizations and liquidations allow us to provide our clients with expert, effective representation.

We work with our clients in developing pre-default strategies to avoid or minimize bankruptcy risks. Our attorneys aggressively pursue pre-judgment and other remedies, including garnishments, attachments, receiverships, replevins, and foreclosures. We negotiate and document complex out-of-court workouts and debt restructurings. We have experience dealing with troubled loans and bankruptcies in a variety of industries, including agriculture, airline, hospitality, mining, health care, municipal bonds, transportation and real estate. Since the collapse of the real estate market several years ago, we have dealt with hundreds of partially completed real estate developments and worked through title claims, lien priority disputes, mechanics' liens and bonded stop notices.

The firm represents a wide array of secured and unsecured creditors, landlords, creditors' committees, and trustees in bankruptcy. We also use our experience and expertise to guide borrowers through their financial trouble to restructure their debt.

Our attorneys have been recognized for their expertise and experience in bankruptcy and related areas and we have nationally and Arizona certified attorneys and are frequent lecturers on creditors' rights and bankruptcy issues. The firm's Banking Group has been recognized by Ranking Arizona as the #1 Banking Law Firm since the category's inception in 2015.
