Corporate Workouts and Restructuring

When a company is in financial distress, decision-makers need to act speedily. When that happens, we help you chart out the best strategy to find an avenue that protects and also distributes value.

Our Corporate team serves as start-to-close counsel to investment clients on acquisitions, equity and debt investments, and guides our clients through situational dynamics by negotiating terms, creating deal structures, and paving the path to completion. Working closely with debtholders, borrowers and other stakeholders, we strive to bridge differences and get the deal done in an efficient manner.

We take an integrated approach, drawing on the industry-respected expertise of our Bankruptcy and Insolvency team.
