Bankruptcy / Creditors Rights

Smith, Gambrell & Russell, LLP represents creditors, lenders, debtors and trustees, providing the full spectrum of bankruptcy and creditors’ rights services. We seek practical business solutions while preparing fully for potential litigation. We draw on the firm’s experience in commercial lending transactions and general representation of commercial financial institutions as well as the capabilities of complementary practices such as real estate, litigation and securities. The broad experience of our attorneys regularly produces creative solutions to difficult problems.

SGR’s combination in 2023 with Freeborn & Peters substantially broadened the geographic scope of our practice. Long known as a leading bankruptcy practice in the Southeast, SGR added a formidable Chambers-recognized bankruptcy and restructuring team from Freeborn. Together, we comprise one of the premier bankruptcy and restructuring groups nationally.
