Bankruptcy need not spell the end. It can be an opportunity for a welcomed change or for a new beginning. The attorneys of our Bankruptcy and Creditors Rights Group will stand at your side to find the right path forward.

Kenneth P. Silverman, a distinguished bankruptcy trustee, practitioner, and lecturer leads the Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights Group with the wisdom of a simple phrase – “there is always a way.” Countless clients have benefited from that philosophy.

When facing an actual or potential business failure of a strategic partner or even of your own company, our professionals share your concerns, understand your business, and can create and maximize your opportunities. That’s why businesses, banks, trustees, creditors’ committees, and liquidating trusts throughout the United States rely on the Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights Group to protect their rights and advance their goals in innumerable nationally prominent and high profile cases.

Decades of experience have allowed our attorneys to solve virtually every issue that can be encountered in a bankruptcy case. Many of our cases involve household names such as GMAC Mortgage, Delta Airlines, Pergament, Ranch1, Harrows, Crabtree & Evelyn, and Florsheim. Others concern lesser known , but no less important, businesses.

For example, when a secured lender wanted to purchase a $125 million residential building in midtown Manhattan from the bankrupt developer who wanted to keep the property, it turned to the Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights Group to accomplish its goal. A large, multinational corporation relied on us when it needed to loan $50 million in the chapter 11 of one of its subsidiaries, a world renowned cosmetics company. When the independent board of directors of the owner of 14 shopping centers in the Southeastern United States needed to sell its real property through the chapter 11 process, it relied on the Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights Group to achieve the maximum possible recovery.

Time and again, our attorneys create value and find solutions in the most complex bankruptcy cases. Whether you are buying distressed assets in South Carolina, managing creditor issues in Georgia, or one of your vendors just filed for bankruptcy in New York, let our Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights Group provide you with the guidance that you deserve.

  • I have had the pleasure to work with Ken Silverman and the team at SA on several complex matters. What sets SA apart is that the attorneys are creative and collaborative. They have the unusual ability to view situations from both a legal and a business perspective. They listen carefully and suggest thoughtful paths. I look forward to a life-long relationship and many future collaborations with Ken, Russ, and the SA team.

  • Silverman Acampora has successfully and effectively represented my businesses in various matters. I have worked closely with Jay Hellman and Ron Friedman and their expertise and dedication have served to obtain favorable outcomes.

    Holly Wallman, Retro Fitness Franchisee

  • I used to recommend clients who need assistance with commercial litigation to large, impersonal firms, but now I solely recommend Silverman Acampora. Jay Hellman and the other partners give their clients personalized attention that one would not expect from a large firm, and more importantly, they take the time to keep the client actively involved through all phases of the litigation. In all the matters that I have referred to SA, the one common denominator clients have reported is excellent legal work and exceptional client contact.
