Bankruptcy and Creditors' Rights

Cummings & Lockwood’s Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights practice is comprised of skilled attorneys with more than 50 years of collective experience representing institutional and individual creditors and other parties in bankruptcy courts at the federal district level, as well as in state court proceedings in Connecticut and other jurisdictions.

Our attorneys help secured creditors pursue remedies that will give them the best return possible on their investments, from real estate foreclosures to enforcing Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) rights against other forms of collateral. We also represent clients seeking to recover unsecured debts and, where appropriate, advocate on their behalf to obtain security on obligations through prejudgment remedies.

We bring a wealth of experience in the following areas:


  • Representing creditors in Chapter 7 and 11 cases
  • Obtaining relief from the automatic stay in bankruptcy
  • Defending preference and/or fraudulent conveyance claims


  • Commercial properties
  • Residential properties
  • Prejudgment remedies
  • Collections
  • Workouts
