Lou focuses his practice on commercial disputes, including bankruptcy, litigation, creditor’s rights and tax disputes. He advises banks, landlords, investors, vendors and others owed money on the best options to protect their assets, recover collateral and get paid. He works in a range of contexts including workouts, litigation, receiverships, bankruptcy reorganizations and liquidations.

Lou regularly appears in Nevada’s state and federal district, bankruptcy and appellate courts, as well as other courts around the country. Lou has advised creditors, creditor committees, buyers, trustees, and equity throughout the life of bankruptcies, receiverships, and restructuring procedures. Lou is often involved before a bankruptcy is filed, counseling clients on accounts receivable, collection efforts, collateral, and guarantor obligations. He has successful petitioned for an involuntary bankruptcy. Once a bankruptcy is on file, he routinely has litigated disputes to obtain stay relief to proceed with foreclosure, acquired claims to improve voting rights and economic return, and defeated plans of reorganization detrimental to his client’s interests. Lou also believes in using court proceedings as leverage to reach the best possible compromise, resulting in favorable loan renegotiations and asset purchases. He also is regularly involved in receivership proceedings before, during and after bankruptcy to make sure a neutral party manages the debtor’s assets and prevents inappropriate liquidations.
