When confronted with our clients’ emergent circumstances, we swiftly and efficiently assess our client’s source of financial distress and work to implement creative and innovative out-of-court restructuring options through consensual debt restructurings and financial recapitalization. If we determine that a Chapter 11 bankruptcy is the most viable restructuring option to preserve enterprise value, we utilize our extensive experience representing Chapter 11 debtors to achieve successful results for our clients.

A successful debtor representation begins with a thorough analysis of a corporate debtor’s goals, resources, threats and strategic alternatives. Olshan works with corporate debtors to formulate effective and creative solutions to current financial issues. Our process includes assisting with the evaluation of potential recapitalization, restructuring, refinancing and sale opportunities.

Olshan leverages the expertise and broad range of experience of its attorneys in assisting clients in restructuring or selling troubled companies on both a regional and national level. While our debtor representation practice focuses on “middle-market” companies, our attorneys have assisted companies of all sizes, from ten million to over a billion dollars, through restructuring and chapter 11 processes. The goal is to facilitate an efficient restructuring or a going-concern sale of the business while preserving value for creditors, stakeholders and other interested parties.

We regularly address related concerns including cash-flow and creditor disputes and other issues commonly faced by management as part of a restructuring process. Should a client require legal assistance beyond the group’s areas of expertise, we are able to enlist the assistance of qualified and efficient Olshan lawyers in such specialized areas as corporate/securities, employment, real estate and tax law.

The talents of the entire firm are routinely integrated with our practice. This ensures that all aspects of a bankruptcy, workout or refinancing are handled by lawyers who are experts in the issues to be addressed. Similarly, the breadth of our attorney’s practices facilitates achieving the best possible results, but does so in a timely and cost effective way.
