Robbins, Salomon and Patt (RSP) is a law firm built on lasting relationships, with both our attorneys and our clients. Most of our firm’s members have been practicing law together for decades and a significant number of our clients have been with us equally as long.

We are a complete business law firm, offering a wide range of legal services to our clients across the Midwest.

With our extensive knowledge of the law, our combined practical experience and our ability to develop innovative and cost-effective solutions, we pride ourselves on being your strategic partner.

Creditor’s Rights & Bankruptcy

Our attorneys have been successful in rendering advice, structuring transactions and developing innovative solutions to protect and enforce the rights of creditors within and outside of bankruptcy proceedings. We regularly counsel investor groups, financial institutions, asset management companies and other asset portfolio holders on managing and minimizing risks associated with lender liability and defend against lender liability claims and other claims or counterclaims by borrowers or guarantors.

RSP provides the entire range of remedy-enforcement, defense and other creditors’ rights services, such as receivership proceedings, real and personal property foreclosures, actions on notes and guaranties and other actions to protect and preserve collateral.

Our attorneys possess the business acumen and litigation experience required to successfully handle complex bankruptcy cases. We understand fully the perspectives of commercial and institutional lenders regarding loan recoveries and debt restructuring in insolvency proceedings.
