Our focus on representing companies, boards of directors and equity holders—including entrepreneurs and private equity firms—enables us to avoid creditor representations that would give us a conflict of interest in aggressively representing our clients. Among firms expert in the restructuring business, we differentiate ourselves through our ability to provide such conflict-free advice.
We bring an exceptional combination of financial advisory experience in complex and distressed situations and a successful track record in providing expert witness and litigation support services.
