Farella Braun + Martel Flat Fee Bankruptcy Monitoring Product Simplifies Clients’ Lives

May 9, 2013 Announcement

SAN FRANCISCO, May 9, 2013 - Farella Braun + Martel is pleased to announce the launch of a new Bankruptcy Monitoring Product. The flat fee solution offers clients access to Farella’s bankruptcy team led by a bankruptcy specialist certified by the State Bar of California and the American Board of Certification. 

 

Companies that have vendors, customers or other counterparties in bankruptcy often fail to properly and timely file claims in the bankruptcy case. This process can be tedious and time consuming for in-house counsel and business executives. Likewise, missing developments in the bankruptcy case can prevent a party’s ability to rightfully collect amounts owed to them or otherwise protect their interests. By taking on the bankruptcy claims and case monitoring process, Farella can help its clients focus on what they do best—run their business. 

 

The Farella Bankruptcy Monitoring Product is an efficient process the firm has developed to assist its clients, by reviewing initial bankruptcy filings, developing a strategic overview of the case, preparing proof of claims, and monitoring case filings for issues of potential importance to the client.
