Workouts and Bankruptcy Consulting

When a company is wilting under financial stress or underperforming significantly, it can seem as though there is no way out. This is where we can enter the picture to analyze the problems, make the appropriate recommendations, and act in whatever capacity is necessary. Our involvement can stabilize the situation and restore creditor and stakeholder confidence. Sugarman & Company works on behalf of creditors, including financial institutions and creditor’s committees; debtors, including chief executive officers, other senior management, and boards of directors; and the courts.

Sometimes bankruptcy is the right choice, and we have extensive experience in this area. However, in many cases, an out-of-court workout can be arranged. After all, a Chapter 11 is going to involve restructuring debt, and this can sometimes be done outside of federal bankruptcy court. We put each situation under the microscope and provide custom crafted strategies that lead to renewed stability.

We have assisted in the reorganization of over $1 billion of debt.
