Bankruptcy is complicated, and a bankruptcy appeal is even more complex. There are numerous moving parts that can affect you or your client. Whether you represent the debtor or creditor, a person or a corporation, you need experienced appellate attorneys on your side.
Because of the nature of the bankruptcy process, bankruptcy appeals are unique. Unlike traditional civil appeals, you do not have to wait until the conclusion of bankruptcy to file an appeal. In fact, you need to be able to identify appealable decisions and act fast to preserve your right to the bankruptcy estate. Many times, a bankruptcy judge’s ruling can qualify as an independent, discrete, final, and appealable unit. As a creditor, you do not want to lose the priority of your claim, lose a secured interest, receive less than you are owed, or suffer anything else that is detrimental to your claim. As a debtor, you do not want to pay more than required or lose out on the best possible options for a clean reorganization or a fresh start. Appellate attorneys can help you identify your rights and put your appeal in motion.
The appellate deadlines occur much quickly in a bankruptcy appeal. For example, you only have 14 days to file a notice of appeal to preserve your rights. Appeals can be difficult for even the most seasoned bankruptcy attorney. We have experienced appellate attorneys who can guide you through the intricacies of a bankruptcy appeal.
