Restructuring and Litigation

Body

Businesses face risks from a host of internal and external events such as mergers and acquisitions, insolvency due to over-expansion, financial restatements and protracted litigation. These pressures can lead to complex litigation matters or the need to restructure a company’s capital structure in a Chapter 11 bankruptcy or outside a court supervised process.  While each event is unique, all must be understood from the root cause and managed with expediency to limit exposure.
