4. Halperin Battaglia Benzija

Halperin Battaglia Benzija is a New York boutique that focuses solely on bankruptcy. With a dedicated team of 11 attorneys, the firm works with clients on out-of-court restructurings, chapter 11 reorganization and liquidation cases, debtor-creditor litigation and transactional advice.

“We are frequently called upon to handle complex and unique problems and to craft creative approaches and solutions. In this vein, while we believe that a non-litigation resolution can often be crafted that resolves issues in a favorable manner, when resolution on favorable terms is not possible, we are ready and able to represent clients in all facets of litigation, from the filing of a complaint or answer through trial,” their website states.
