Gieger Laborde & Laperouse’s bankruptcy and creditors rights practice is not limited

to merely representing secured and unsecured creditors in Chapter 7, 11 and 13 bankruptcy proceedings. Our attorneys have significant experience in pre-bankruptcy planning, as well as in workouts and out-of-court restructurings. In addition, members of the firm are adept at filing and handling executory process and “ordinary” foreclosure proceedings, attachments, sequestrations, and other lender-creditor related litigation. Further, we regularly represent financial institutions, oil and gas interests, maritime clients, and others in collection matters, secured transaction cases and lien litigation. Because of our wealth of experience in these areas, and the depth of support available from attorneys practicing in other areas, such as oil and gas and admiralty, we are able to move quickly and efficiently, once a matter is assigned to us, so as to maximize the recovery for our clients or to prepare a successful defense.
