Forshey Prostok LLP is on par with large international firms when it comes to recent bankruptcy filings, according to a recent report in The Texas Lawbook. In fact, only five law firms have filed more bankruptcy cases in Texas than 11-lawyer Forshey Prostok – and all of those firms have more than 100 attorneys on their rosters; one has more than 2,000.
According to the Aug. 31 Texas Lawbook story, the COVID-19 pandemic-fueled bankruptcy boom has resulted in a significant uptick in work for bankruptcy and restructuring attorneys. Although much of that work has gone to major law firms with national and international presences, a disproportionate amount of it has come to Forshey Prostok, a boutique firm with offices in Fort Worth, Dallas and Houston.
