Michael Brandess

Michael A. Brandess, an attorney at Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer LLP in the firm’s Bankruptcy, Reorganization & Creditors’ Rights practice group, is consistently recognized for his dedicated and zealous representation for his clients, finding the most efficient and creative solutions, securing his clientele the most value for their claims. Michael’s practice focuses on representing creditors, debtors and creditors’ committees in complex corporate restructurings.

Michael has a wealth of experience representing both secured and unsecured creditors in complex restructurings and liquidations across the country, in industries ranging from real estate, construction, retail, financial services, telecommunications and restaurant franchises. Michael represents secured lenders both before and during insolvency proceedings, protecting his clients’ collateral from diminution of value, so they may realize a higher return.  Additionally, he has successfully represented asset purchasers in complex bankruptcy sales, creditors’ committees in difficult reorganizations and liquidating trustees and plan administrators during the wind-down of multi-million dollar bankruptcy estates.

Michael’s experience extends across the country, having represented his clients in complex bankruptcy matters before the U.S. Bankruptcy Courts for the Southern District of New York, the District of Delaware, the Southern District of Florida, the District of Arizona, the Central District of California, the Southern District of Texas and the Northern District of Illinois.

In addition to representing clients, Michael has authored several articles on bankruptcy claims trading, including, “Claims Trading: The Wild West of Chapter 11’s,” co-authored with Aaron L. Hammer, which was featured on the cover of the July/August 2010 American Bankruptcy Institute Law Journal.
