A creditor's attorney is often in a love/hate relationship with the bankruptcy court. Although the entire premise of the bankruptcy court is for a debtor to honestly disclose his assets and liabilities and in return receive his discharge and a fresh start, it often feels like it is the creditor's job through their attorney to ferret out the misrepresentations, investigate the assets and then hope against hope, the trustee sees some value worth pursuing.
A client enters into a contract with another business for goods or services and it seems straight forward enough. But alas, as sometimes happens, the deal goes sideways and payment is not made. The client makes the business decision to file suit for damages. They hire competent counsel to aggressively litigate the case and win on summary judgment. Judgment is entered and the client, while thrilled to win has expended considerable sums to get judgment entered, and expects to be paid-now. Tick tock; no payment yet. The time to file an appeal passes. Tick tock; still no payment.
