Charles “Charlie” Cook draws on years of experience and a deep well of knowledge to represent clients in general commercial litigation involving sales of goods and services, bankruptcy matters and litigation and commercial loan workouts. Charlie counsels financial institutions on risk mitigation matters and defends clients in lender liability cases and claims brought under the Uniform Commercial Code and other laws particularly applicable to bank operations.
Some of these matters require a combination of litigation and negotiation that compel Charlie to untangle layers of complexity, craft and implement innovative strategies and a work in close partnership with clients, who say they value his creativity and collaboration. In addition to representing banks and other creditors in bankruptcy matters, he helps purchasers of assets and lenders navigate the issues that arise in bankruptcy sales.
In service to clients, Charlie works in tandem with them in setting realistic goals, assisting in achieving those objectives and helping make the best out bad situations while reaping the most out of good ones.
