Fennell Law has extensive experience representing bankruptcy trustees as general and special counsel. These court-appointed fiduciaries are assisted by Fennell Law in all aspects of administering a bankruptcy estate, including locating and recovering concealed assets, investigation and prosecution of suspected fraud, pursuit of unauthorized liquidation or transfer of assets, prosecution of avoidance actions, and court-approved sale of estate assets. These experiences give Mr. Fennell unique insight when representing creditors before the bankruptcy court that few other creditor attorneys have.
