Due to the current market conditions, bankruptcy is one of the hottest legal fields in our nation and is continuing to grow. Bankruptcy lawyers represent creditors and debtors in financial restructurings, workouts, and bankruptcy cases, therefore the attorney must know the bankruptcy code as well as understanding mergers and acquistitions, corporate and securities, real estate, employment law and regulatory practice.
Bankruptcy is really a hybrid between litigation and transactional practice, so the practitioner should be skilled in both drafting documents as well as being able to argue them successfully. Writing skills are a necessity for drafting the pleadings, motions, and other documents the bankruptcy attorney will use daily. Because bankruptcy law is economy driven, now is a great time to find your opportunity in this field.
