When your business is over-leveraged or has cash-flow issues, and existing lending relationships are not allowing the necessary breathing room to continue operating, our lawyers have the experience and know-how to assist you in exploring and implementing restructuring options. We may assist in negotiating a modification of an existing obligation without resorting to formal reorganization proceedings. Our lawyers may assist in preparing restructuring proposals to creditors, evaluating proposals made by lenders to you, reviewing guaranties, security agreements, deeds of trust and other contracts related to the loan and security issues. In addition, we may be able to assist in locating new sources of funds in the lending community that might be interested in participating in a restructuring.
Our clients in restructuring matters have spanned several industries and business types. We have worked with equity investment firms, turnaround professionals, family business owners, company management, and sole owners in the industries and areas of real estate development, real estate management, shopping centers, multi-family housing, unfinished development projects, hotels and lodging, restaurants, retail chains or single unit stores, providers of professional services, retail services, medical practice and hospital groups, automobile dealerships, sub-contractors and general contractors, title and insurance agencies, non-profit agencies, art galleries, educational facilities, farm and agricultural businesses, and franchise operations.
