GRIFFIN HAMERSKY LLP attorneys possess a wealth of expertise and experience representing parties in interest in all facets of distressed M&A, corporate insolvency, bankruptcy, restructuring, reorganization, creditors’ rights, corporate governance and other related insolvency matters. 

The Firm’s attorneys have been actively involved in representing clients on all sides of the capital structure with respect to distressed matters, including representing debtors, official and ad hoc creditors committees, bondholder committees, secured lender groups, trustees, and boards of directors in both national and cross border contexts.  The Firm also routinely represents acquirers and sellers of distressed assets both in and outside of bankruptcy. As a result, the Firm is well situated in engagements to quickly and efficiently understand the dynamics and key issues at play in a matter, and anticipate each party’s related positions and arguments. 

Notwithstanding this considerable experience, the Firm recognizes that value maximization in distressed scenarios is often achieved only upon the application of our experience and relevant law, with inventive thinking and a strategy that adequately considers the business, financial and personal implications of any proposed course of action.  Further, because we know what questions to ask and where to find the answers, we obtain value-added results for clients efficiently and in a cost-effective manner.
