Financial advisors and investment banks retain Chapman for a variety of restructuring and bankruptcy matters.

Chapman’s firmwide focus on finance and extensive breadth and depth of experience on behalf of banks, investment banks, and financial advisory and valuation firms, as well as other bankruptcy and restructuring professionals, have positioned our firm to provide clients with uniquely comprehensive advice pertaining to virtually any size or type of engagement, bankruptcy retention, conflict, or fee application issue. 

When a financial advisor or investment banker is retained, we provide comprehensive support in reviewing and negotiating engagement letters and agreements.

Bankruptcy Proceedings
In the event of a bankruptcy proceeding, our attorneys assist in filing motions for court approval and, when necessary, draft conflict affidavits and negotiate and resolve any potential retention objections.

Fee Approval
To ensure our clients’ fees are approved and paid, we assist with the drafting, reviewing, and filing of fee applications and help resolve any fee issues that may arise.
