Making the Right Choices Depends on Having the Right Counsel

From the initial signs of distress, the process of restructuring a company’s debts is difficult. All stakeholders in the business, including lenders, trade creditors, equity, company management, and, sometimes, outsiders contemplating acquisition, are in a tug of war. They all must make crucial decisions such as whether to utilize pre-bankruptcy workout options like forbearance agreements, whether to file Chapter 11, or whether a structured sale of a business or other option is in the best interest of all stakeholders. Because missteps can be costly, it is critical to retain counsel like Lugenbuhl, who confidently advise clients – based on long experience, deep understanding of the law and our clients’ interests – of their options and likely outcomes.
