One of FSSK’s primary areas of practice in this field is the representation of Chapter 7 Panel Trustees. One of FSSK’s senior partners, Randall L. Seaver, is among the state’s most reputable Chapter 7 trustees, having supervised the proper administration of numerous complex bankruptcy cases. In representing trustees, our primary focus is to obtain a beneficial result for creditors while maintaining the integrity of the bankrutpcy process. FSSK has represented trustees in hundreds of litigation cases in U.S. Bankruptcy Court over a 20-year span, resulting in recoveries of millions of dollars for bankruptcy estates. This significant trustee experience affords our firm unique insight into the ins-and-outs of the administration of a bankruptcy case and overall goals of a Chapter 7 trustee.
FSSK has excelled in cases where fraud is present, including work in the Denny Hecker bankruptcy case, considered by many to be the most complex bankruptcy case in Minnesota history. FSSK worked closely with co-counsel to recover millions of dollars for the benefit of creditors, as well as uncovering fraud which eventually led to Mr. Hecker’s guilty plea to a criminal bankruptcy fraud charge. In addition to the recovery of assets through fraudulent and preferential transfer actions, FSSK handles revocations of discharge, litigation over exemption issues, complex claim objections, and all other legal matters typically encountered by bankruptcy trustees.
We also advocate for creditors in every facet of bankruptcy, including representation of unsecured creditors' committees in Chapter 11. Whether defending preference claims, prosecuting fraudulent transfers, or seeking relief from the automatic stay, we thoughtfully and thoroughly protect your interests and keep you well informed through every step of the process.
