I wanted to express my appreciation for the efforts made by LainFaulkner in this chapter 11 case. All parties acknowledged that with proper cash management procedures, this could be a successful business. With your firm’s intervention, the trust was able to confirm a feasible plan. Without your firm’s intervention, this would have been a chapter 7.
- United States Trustee



LainFaulkner is my first choice as a trustee. They get to the heart of things fast, plan well, and then push hard for resolution and closure.

From the Court's perspective, this is a textbook case illustrating how schedules and statements of financial affairs should be prepared.

The court has not detailed here the data from which Mr. French derived his numbers. Suffice it to say that his research was extensive and well-planned. The court is satisfied that his opinions are defensible under the most rigorous Daubert analysis.

They are great to work with and have this [claims resolution and preference analysis] down to a science. When all was said and done, the Trustee ended up with approximately a 50% distribution rate for unsecured creditors – much better than predicted early on in the case.”

Tax and other Financial Services

Tax compliance in the bankruptcy environment has become more difficult and complex. Lain Faulkner can help guide Trustees through the tax compliance maze. LFC can assist with the preparation of Federal and state income tax returns, payroll taxes, sales taxes and informational returns. With years of experience behind them, the LFC tax department can also assist Trustees with pre-bankruptcy tax planning to avoid unnecessary taxes that could incur due to certain transactions occurring during a bankruptcy.

LainFaulkner has researched and analyzed current market conditions and current, applicable court cases to perform the analysis necessary to provide or rebut an opinion as to an appropriate interest rate to be applied to secured debt under the cram down provision(s) of Section 1129(b) of the US Bankruptcy Code.


For nearly three decades, LainFaulkner has been a trusted source of bankruptcy accounting, forensic accounting and litigation services.
