Vigorous Bankruptcy Litigation

Pierce & O’Neill, LLP provides skilled litigation services to commercial bankruptcy clients across the United States. Based in the commercial and energy industry hub of Houston, Texas, we maintain a vigorous practice catering to a clientele that includes some of the most sophisticated entities in the country, including oil companies, gas companies and other major figures in American commerce.

Sophisticated, Client-Centered Representation

Typically, our bankruptcy practice involves representing our clients when an adverse party files bankruptcy during litigation. Within this field, our work involves all types of complex matters, including:

  • Debtor in possession financing
  • Successor liability, constructive trust, alter ego and lender liability issues
  • Assumption or rejection of complex contracts
  • Avoidance actions
  • Corporate governance and securities disputes

Our approach in these matters is particularly client-centered, as corporate bankruptcy disputes lend themselves well to individually tailored business-based solutions. Where litigation becomes necessary, however, our lawyers hold extensive experience protecting clients’ financial rights under the Bankruptcy Code. We understand how to best harness client resources during the accelerated pace of bankruptcy litigation and trial matters.

A Solid Foundation

The foundation of our success, however, lies in the firm’s traditional approach to the attorney-client relationship. The founders of Pierce & O’Neill, LLPJesse Pierce and Jack O’Neill, each hold more than 40 years of experience counseling energy and corporate clients through some of their most complicated legal matters at trial and on appeal. Mr. Pierce has also represented a number of debtors and lenders in corporate reorganization cases. Through our insightful approach and steadfast dedication to our clients, our firm has built client relationships that are measured in terms of decades and multiple legal engagements.
