Texas bankruptcy attorney Jack R. Bird’s insolvency practice includes creditor representation in bankruptcy matters and work-outs and borrower representation in work-outs. Mr. Bird has represented secured and unsecured lenders, including banks, indenture trustees, creditor committees, equipment lessors, landlords, bondholders and hedge funds in major bankruptcy proceedings, pre-bankruptcy proceedings, and post-bankruptcy matters for in excess of 25 years.
