Our extensive international experience enables us to provide consistent answers to cross-border bankruptcy concerns, and the immediate answers necessary to strategically protect clients’ interests and claims in time-critical situations.

With a 35-year focus on technology clients, Bialson, Bergen & Schwab attorneys have special expertise in protecting and enforcing rights and claims under production or supply chain contracts and equipment leases, licensing rights in software and other intellectual property, and claims involving court-approved sales in bankruptcy cases.

We prosecute our clients’ contract, intellectual property, and other claims from the filing of an initial proof of claim, through the adjudication of the claim, and, ultimate distribution of the appropriate recovery. The defense of “preference” and other avoidance actions stemming from bankruptcy and insolvency matters is an area of particular expertise—and our defense record is enviable.
