Manage Your Debt

Solutions for Distressed Businesses

Representation of Distressed Businesses and Officials of Troubled Companies 

Our attorneys regularly represent companies in distress, both in out-of-court workouts and as debtors in the Chapter 11 process. We also help companies regarding receiverships, plans of arrangement, loan forbearance and extension agreements, deeds in lieu, guaranty and foreclosure litigation, and other non-bankruptcy workouts and restructurings. 

We offer our clients cost-effective resolutions and, where necessary, we represent their interests in contested matters and adversary proceedings before bankruptcy courts.  

In representing companies facing financial or operational challenges, our attorneys regularly function as transactional attorneys, negotiating and drafting reorganization plans, disclosure statements, bankruptcy financing documents, asset and stock sale agreements, real estate and personal property leases, license agreements, and management agreements.

Waldrep LLP has the experience to handle any bankruptcy matter. Tom Waldrep has practiced commercial bankruptcy law for over 30 years, representing creditors, debtors, trustees, and committees in all types of bankruptcies. For nine years, Tom served as a United States Bankruptcy Judge. Now he regularly appears in bankruptcy courts throughout the Southeast. Jennifer Lyday and Francisco Morales together have practiced commercial bankruptcy law for over 10 years. The firm’s attorneys have successfully handled many bankruptcies, out-of-court workout agreements, foreclosures, and other proceedings under state law.


Waldrep LLP delivers superior client service with a reasonable fee structure. We strive to generate superior work product while billing our clients for fewer hours than our competition for comparable work. Our clients’ interests are our priority. If we waste time in pursuit of a solution, then our client has wasted money. Our experience and knowledge deliver exceptional value for our clients.


Waldrep LLP is not a full-service law firm. Rather, it is a boutique law firm that specializes in only a few areas of practice: business insolvency, commercial bankruptcy, and healthcare transactions. This specialization allows us to focus our energy and talent on helping clients with what we know best—bankruptcy and insolvency law.


I just wanted to say we are really happy with the work, cost, efficiency you all did on [a recent project].  Excellent work . . . I appreciate your hard work making my life easier.  The new firm is exceeding our already high expectations.
