Employment Related Bankruptcy Representation


Hoffman Employment Law has considerable experience in bankruptcy matters, but we limit our involvement in bankruptcy to issues relating to or arising from the employment relationship.  Except for advising employers of their bankruptcy options, our bankruptcy representation is exclusively limited to creditor representation.

Employees often need representation in bankruptcy proceedings, to protect their legal rights as creditors to unpaid wages and other employment related claims and damages. We are well known for our representation of employees, and assist employees in the following:

  • Aggressive collection of unpaid wages;
  • Aggressive enforcement of judgments;
  • Filing proofs of claim in their employer's bankruptcy;
  • Filing adversary proceedings to deny an employer of a discharge of an debt owed to an employee;
  • Filing Motions to Lift Stay (to allow employment related litigation to continue despite the filing of a bankruptcy petition);
  • Appearance as counsel in "341 meetings" and discovery related to concealed assets (pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 2004); and
  • Opposing proposed plan confirmations and sham "363" sales.

From time to time, our employer related clients become justifiably distressed.  Sometimes, the solution to litigation can rightly involve the protection of employers by a bankruptcy court.  That advice should not wait.  We draw on our experience both as employment defense counsel and our knowledge of bankruptcy law principles, to advise employer clients of the potential option of bankruptcy relief and related solutions.  When one of our employer client wants to seek bankruptcy protection, we refer that matter to competent bankruptcy practitioners in the Mid-Atlantic area.  When employers count on Hoffman Employment Law, they can rest assured that they will receive wide-ranging options from which to choose the wisest course of action, and that may include strategic restructuring options fashioned by bankruptcy counsel.
