About Winthrop Couchot

Winthrop Couchot Professional Corporation (WCPC), located in Newport Beach, California, is one of Southern California’s premier bankruptcy law firms. Established in 1995, WCPC limits its practice exclusively to complex bankruptcy, insolvency, business reorganization, related commercial litigation, liquidations, acquisitions, out-of-court workouts and general assignments for the benefit of creditors. The firm’s practice includes pre-bankruptcy petition and post-bankruptcy petition planning and representation.  The attorneys at WCPC have extensive experience representing debtors, creditors, bankruptcy trustees, creditors’ committees, asset purchasers and assignees and assignors in the context of a general assignment for the benefit of creditors. Our clients include publicly and closely held companies, as well as high net worth individuals.

The attorneys at WCPC understand that the law is a means to accomplish their clients’ business and personal objectives, not an end in itself. They listen to their clients and take the time to learn about and understand their clients’ business as well as their needs. WCPC provides innovative, responsive and cost-effective legal solutions. For each case, WCPC assembles a team of appropriately experienced attorneys and uses the resources of our legal assistant staff to economically serve our clients’ needs. WCPC places great emphasis on counseling clients on preventative measures, which include mediation and arbitration. This minimizes legal costs and disruption of our clients’ businesses and lives. Should litigation be necessary, however, the firm is committed to its clients by responding aggressively to disputes that cannot be settled by the parties themselves.
