Restructuring & Insolvency


Business is risky. A host of reasons may cause companies to struggle and, in some cases, force a business restructuring or trigger an insolvency proceeding. For those on the unfortunate side of such situations, understanding the options available can be the difference between a second chance or shuttering operations or recouping an investment. For others, opportunities await those poised to acquire the distressed assets. Retaining a law firm with the capabilities to navigate the complexity of the laws governing business restructurings is critical.
