Creditors’ Rights and Bankruptcy

Angelo and Banta, P.A. is proud of its strong tradition in providing quality and sophisticated legal representation to financial institutions and other creditors in secured creditor litigation, problem loan workouts and insolvency matters.

Angelo & Banta’s creditors’ rights and bankruptcy practice is multi-faceted. To begin, we help our clients properly draft loan documents and structure both new transactions and loan modifications minimizing the risks associated with a potential bankruptcy or insolvency of borrowers or loan guarantors. The scope of our representation has included complex loan workouts involving various types of collateral throughout the United States including resort hotels, condominiums, office buildings, accounts receivable, inventory and other types of personal property.

Additionally, our attorneys have many years of experience in handling non-bankruptcy creditors’ litigation. We have represented both lenders and receivers in connection with commercial and residential foreclosure actions, personal property and aircraft replevin actions, receiverships, garnishment proceedings and execution of judgments. Two of the firm’s partners, Thomas Angelo and James Carpenter, have handled literally hundreds of commercial foreclosure actions and creditor lawsuits. We have also handled deed-in-lieu transactions, friendly foreclosure actions and sales of distressed properties by financial institutions.

Our attorneys have represented clients in these types of matters on behalf of agent banks where multiple bank participants are involved. For example, Angelo & Banta’s managing shareholder, Thomas Angelo, represented Barnett Bank in the sale of Miami’s famed Biltmore Hotel to the Seaway Group. Mr. Angelo also documented Barnett’s complex purchasing money-financing to the buyer of that hotel and handled the bank’s negotiations with its loan participant, Ohio Savings Bank.
