Services Offered

Parkinson Phinney provides all types of litigation and collection services to banks, commercial and private lenders, landlords, equipment lessors, chapter 11 creditors’ committees and bankruptcy trustees. We assist with prosecution of foreclosure proceedings and monitor the foreclosure process from start to finish. We also address title issues including inadvertently unrecorded documents, we obtain release of lis pendens and address other title problems incidental to the foreclosure process. We represent creditors in chapter 7, 11 and 13 bankruptcy cases to obtain relief from stay, evaluate chapter 11 and chapter 13 plans, object to plans, object to dischargeability of debts, file proofs of claim and move to prohibit use of cash collateral, evaluate budgets and pro formas and advise creditors with regard to market terms and preserving lien rights through a chapter 11 or chapter 13 cram down process.

We have substantial experience representing creditors’ committees in the evaluation of complex chapter 11 plans, assistance with by-laws and meetings, communications with other case creditors, and prosecution of avoidance actions and other litigation to preserve the most value for unsecured creditors. We also represent chapter 7 and chapter 11 trustees throughout the bankruptcy process, including prosecuting bankruptcy litigation on behalf of trustees.

For commercial and individual creditors, we also defend against avoidance actions, including preference claims and fraudulent transfers.

In state court, we file and prosecute guarantor and other collection complaints, obtain prejudgment remedies such as attachment and claim and delivery. We also prosecute complaints for judicial foreclosure and for appointment of receivers. We defend against state court actions seeking to stay foreclosure proceedings with a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction.

Our goal is to provide excellent quality timely service for good value.
