Calfee has a sophisticated business restructuring and corporate insolvency practice, with professionals who devote their practices to helping distressed entities, as well as people who are forced to work with distressed entities. We have represented parties engaged in the sale or purchase of distressed assets in Ohio, Delaware, Michigan, Tennessee, Florida, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Texas, California, Alabama, Georgia and North Carolina.
Our insolvency attorneys have experience representing all of the major constituencies in commercial bankruptcy proceedings and out-of-court workouts. Our clients include large public corporations as well as middle-market businesses, individuals and government. Our effectiveness is enhanced by this breadth of experience and our capability in all aspects of the chapter 11 process.
In addition, we handle matters outside of bankruptcy court. Our transactional attorneys are uniquely qualified to handle the problems and issues associated with representing clients in insolvency related transactions, such as:
We spend our time representing debtors, buyers and sellers of distressed assets, lenders, unsecured creditors’ committees and creditors of all kinds. Calfee does not focus its Business Restructuring and Insolvency practice only on one or the other, but rather, we maintain a variety of insolvency related engagements at all times. This provides to us unique insight into how the other side is thinking, giving us and our clients an advantage.
Our goal is to provide effective representation. We view ourselves as part of a restructuring “team,” and our advice is offered in that spirit. We strive to coordinate efforts, taking into account the skills, knowledge and expertise of management and other advisors. We begin and complete all of our advice with one question: What is the exit strategy?
The options for a company requiring a creditors’ rights representation may include something as simple as a phone call and a letter on Calfee’s letterhead. To that end, a client’s needs in a restructuring may include only renegotiation of its secured credit facility, as well as a refinancing of its debt, a debt/equity swap with junior debt, the infusion of a new equity capital or the sale of the business’ assets. Calfee’s Business Restructuring and Insolvency lawyers are prepared to recommend routine solutions when possible, but can also deliver strong advocacy skills when solutions become more complex. Our approach is coordinated with the client, so as to maximize the results, case by case, with the exit strategy in mind.
