Tom DeWoskin leads the firm’s bankruptcy and creditor’s rights practice group and has practiced in the field of commercial law for more than 30 years. He is one of only 12 who serve on the panel of bankruptcy trustees for the Eastern District of Missouri—a position he’s held since its inception.
Tom represents both secured and unsecured creditors, creditors’ committees, and even other trustees, both in formal bankruptcy proceedings as well as informal out-of-court workouts. When representing creditors, his goal is to maximize recovery by using the law and specific case facts to their greatest advantage.
In representing debtors, he recognizes that businesses and individuals sometimes are forced to seek financial relief due to events beyond their control. Tom assists them in obtaining the ‘fresh start’ provided by federal law.
Though usually bankruptcy related, representation is not always limited to a debtor or creditor. For instance, Tom helps those purchasing assets or entire businesses, either from debtors in bankruptcy or from struggling companies outside of any formal bankruptcy process.
Whatever the nature of the counsel he provides, his goal is to protect clients’ interests by developing thoughtful, cost-effective solutions to their needs.
Well regarded in his field, Tom has written articles on various bankruptcy and commercial law topics for general and professional publications. He speaks before a variety of professional groups and local, state and national legal associations.
