What key issues do you help clients manage in bankruptcy proceedings?
Bankruptcy proceedings involve numerous parties with competing interests, which often give rise to a variety of complex and intertwining issues. As a result, it’s important for clients to be knowledgeable and comfortable with all aspects of the case. At Farrell Fritz we strive to spot every issue that may directly or indirectly affect our client’s role and interests in the bankruptcy proceeding, which allows clients to face issues that they may not have otherwise been aware of and reduces uncertainty as the case progresses.
“Success requires three basic elements – a flexible and efficient approach to the matter at hand, a strong client relationship based on open communication, mutual trust and respect and last, but not least, an intimate knowledge of the law.”
How do you maintain successful client relationships?
One of the most important factors in creating and maintaining a successful client relationship is ensuring that you are responsive to the client’s needs. Being responsive involves more than just returning phone calls and e-mails in a timely manner, promptly responding to questions as they arise and making yourself generally available to clients. It also means listening attentively to clients’ concerns so that they can be properly addressed during the course of the representation.
