In addition, Harris maintains a bankruptcy and creditors’ rights practice representing banks, financial institutions, and other creditors in all phases of the workout and debt restructuring process, including negotiating and documenting workout agreements, debt recovery and fraudulent transfer litigation, real estate foreclosure sales, sales pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code, judgment enforcement, and general debt recovery.
