Our expertise helps leadership of private and public companies through a variety of financial services including: turning around distressed operations, improving profitability and cash flow, obtaining new bank financing, attracting additional investors, navigating litigation, insolvency or bankruptcy, and buying or selling businesses. We preserve owners equity, create value, and save jobs.


We work with banks to maximize loan recoveries from financially troubled borrowers. We assist lenders in gathering reliable financial information, identifying hidden problems like fraud, protecting collateral assets, and developing detailed analysis to determine the best workout strategy.  Often, we assist their borrowers in finding new financing sources, or restore them to financial health so the bank can retain them as a customer.


We help creditor committees maximize recoveries in Chapter 7 or 11 bankruptcy. We serve as financial advisors to committees by identifying issues impacting recoveries; identifying alternate recovery strategies; evaluating plans and budgets; monitoring liquidity, collections and operations; investigating causes of action; and facilitating sale or financing transactions. We can serve as operating trustee, receiver, CRO, interim management, or liquidating manager in order to maximize creditor recoveries.


We deliver a high-touch service focus to organizations and their strategic issues: growth; technology investment and enablement; transformation; the customer experience; mergers, acquisitions, and integration.  We clarify your complex issues and challenges: craft solutions that fit; simplify decisions; streamline communications - leading to clear and effective action.
